By  | 

Planning to make your dream pilgrimage to the land of K-Drama and K-Pop? We get you covered with exclusive tips from amazing fanboy, Nelson Obrador.

Korean Drama Filming Location

Korean wave fandom has reached different ages and cultures through the years and we know South Korea has been making use of Korean Wave’s growing popularity to push tourism revenues.

K-entertainment fans would most likely want to visit anything related to K-dramas they love or restaurants or shops attached to their favorite k-pop bias when they finally secure the dates and plane tickets to visit Hallyu land.

Lucky for our dynamic fan base, a fellow avid follower is kind enough to share his experiences attending k-pop fan meetings, fan signing events and concerts. He also goes to visit K-drama filming locations, and we are envious of all those recreated mementos from the scenes of our favorite K-dramas.

Check out some of the places he visited and creatively tweaked to make us all burn with jealousy:

He is staying on trend by updating us to where we can snap some brag-worthy Korean drama filming locations memento – like what he did for What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim, I’m Not A Robot and Are you Human?

Nelson amazingly hunts places that would be relatable for Korean wave fans, and he went all the way to Daejeon to visit Song Joong Ki’s family house.

He shared how the actor’s father was so accommodating and nice. He got a handful of souvenirs from Song Joong Ki’s father, and he even drove him and his friends back to Daejeon station, stopping by at a convenience store to buy ice cream for them.
