[Filming Location] Goblin: The Lonely and Great God

[22 Jan 2017 Update]

I’ve updated most, if not all of the famous filming spots for the drama! They’ve traveled all the way from Quebec (Canada) to Incheon, Seoul, Yongpyong, Gochang, Anseong, Gangneung and Naju. If there’s any location that I’ve missed out, feel free to comment below and I’ll be more than happy to update!

Can’t believe that Goblin is over.. Oh wells, at least it is an ending that makes sense and I can accept it. =p

Any suggestions on the next big hit drama with beautiful filming locations?

Don’t forget to check out my post on the filming locations of Legend of the Blue Sea too!

View all locations (Korea) on Google Maps.

Check out my new post on the comparison of “Drama Footage vs Google Street View” for the scenes in Quebec! Would be useful if you intend to travel there.

I hope that these information will be useful for planning your trip itinerary to Korea! I might be doing a map for these locations in the next few weeks so do bookmark this article and return!

For now, I still do not have any information with regards to the interior of the Goblin House and the Grim Reaper’s Tea Room.

I highly suspect they are studio sets or are at places not easily accessible by the public. Let’s see and hope that they will do an exhibition/showcase of the set when filming is over!

Alright pretty hilarious but the temple’s facebook page did a screenshot of the drama too. You can view it here.

goblin drama location ep 13 gyeongwonjae incheon 1 goblin drama location ep 13 gyeongwonjae incheon
If you’re wondering which room that stayed at, my guess is that it is the “Villa (Royal Suites)” as seen from the photos on the website.
The room is 95 square meters and one night will cost you about 600,000W (USD $510).
There are two Royal Suites so you might have to indicate a special request to the hotel (ROOM 502) if you prefer to stay in the exact same unit.
If you don’t have the money to splurge, consider a deluxe room which cost roughly about 200,000W.
The ratings for this hotel is pretty high.. in the 9/10 or 4.5/5 range.
Please don’t judge yourself for wanting to do such ridiculous stuff. My friends and I booked the exact same hotel room for Onew’s One Fine Day Vacation in Krabi too. It is okay.

(Random Update)

There was a reader which commented that Goblin’s house interior looks similar to that of “Hello Monster/I Remember You” starred by Seo In Guk, Park Bo Gun and Jang Nara. I was feeling a little bored and I watched the drama (IT IS REALLY GOOD) and set looks THE SAME.

Well I guess that did spend quite a bit of money to renovate Goblin’s house since he is like super rich in the drama but the stairs positioning is exactly the same. Sadly, I don’t think this studio will ever be open up for viewing..

  • Woah! So many places to visit! I also enjoy going to the filming locations. I’ve been to BBQ Olive Chicken Cafe, and planning to visit more places around Seoul. Thanks for this list!

  • Thank you for sharing this. I plan to visit SoKor because of Gong Yoo. Looking forward for more updates.

    Thanks again! 😉

  • Hi! Thanks so much for this post! I’m really loving Goblin and I’m a big fan of Gong Yoo so I really want to visit these places next time I go to Koreaü I just hope you can also include English translations for those with Korean linksü

    • Hi there, yes I plan to do up a neater entry with english descriptions in time to come but I’m really busy these days which is why I can only post the sharing links..

  • you’re an angel!!! (same category as 저승사자 as euntak said? LOL, just kidding! ^_^)
    thanks so much for these!!! will try to visit them all!!! ♥♥♥

    • Thanks for your comment! If you do visit these places, do come back and comment/review on the places you’ve visited ^_^

  • Haaa… i love your article. I’ll go to Korea next week, i hope you’ll more update your article before that. 🙂
    Thank you so much.

  • Haaa… i love your post. I’ll go to Korea next week. I hope there’ll more update about filming location.
    Thank you so much.

  • Hi thank you for this post since it gives the names of the locations. I am particularly interested in the location or address of the house where the Goblin and Grim reaper live. Is it possible for you to help me out with this? I would like to find better pictures of the interior and if possible which would be even better the floor plan.

    Thanks in advance,

    Wendy

    • Hi Wendy, I have a feeling that the house that they live in is a Studio Set instead of a real location that we can visit. The exterior of the house is part of a university – I have listed it in my entry. With regards to better pictures and floor plan, I’m afraid I do not have any of these. Hope you can find it somewhere else!

  • Thanks for all the information! Now i wanna see the goblin house exterior! Do you know where the snowy scenes in ep 9 were taken? A walk way where goblin and the bride met. Alot of snowy white trees at the background..

    • Thanks for your comments! I have yet to watch episode 9 so I don’t know where the locations are but I guess I will update my post when I do find out!

  • Hi there, huge thanks to you for writing this very helpful information!! Just wondering if you know the location of the “red door” and the park (ep 2 – the scene where Gong Yoo caught the maple leaf & ep 4 – the scene where Gong Yoo is reading a book) while they were in Quebec City?

    • Hi there, I’ve updated my post with the red door and fountain where Gong Yoo was reading the book. I’m not sure about the park where they caught the maple leaf though =( I guess I’ll update it again when I do find out!

      • the park where they were catching maple leaves is Parc Samuel-Hollande in the Saint-Sacrement neighbourhood. my bro happened to spot them shooting there. I was so upset he didn’t tell me as we live about 5 min from there arrg!

  • Hi,
    Awesome post! Now I can bug my boyfriend to take me to all these places in Spring. I will bring a match at all times too. 🙂

  • Hi. Do you know the location of the umbrella scene where Goblin and Euntak first met?

    I want to know where that street is.

    Thank you for all this list! Can’t wait to hit up some of these locations soon! 😆

    • Hello, I’ve just updated the list with your request. It is near Anguk Station and quite accessible and easy to find!
      Do share with me if you do manage to explore these locations.

      • Thank you so much! I had a feeling it was around Anguk Station Bukchon area because I was there 5 years ago and it looked so familiar. Can’t wait to be back!

        I will definitely share soon! 😆

          • Your post is a blessing! I probably won’t able to go to the ones outside Seoul but I will try my best. Also planning on going to Quebec in October and recreate their scenes lol! I just need to find a real life Goblin who looks a bit like Gong Yoo haha!

          • Oh wells, going to Quebec definitely sounds easier than finding a real life goblin which looks like Gong Yoo. Haha! You’re so lucky to be able to travel so much~~ Quebec is so out of the way for me!

          • I actually live in Canada so in reality Korea is also out of the way for me lol. I’m following you in Instagram 😆

          • ahhh! i guess traveling to quebec is pretty easy for you after all! i haven’t been to canada yet but i heard it is really pretty! Shall aim to visit it some day~~
            I’m based in Singapore so Korea is ‘just’ a 7 hours flight away. I’m heading there in April and i’m quite excited about my trip as it has been 4 years since my last visit.
            I did a follow back on your instagram too ^_^

          • Lucky you!!! I’m going in May. Btw do you know if there are any entry restrictions to Unhyeong (Goblin house entrance)? I mean this is a school right? But if you’re going there in April I guess you can share your experience then 😉

          • I’m going end April – early May~~
            I don’t think there’s restriction on visiting the Goblin house entrance. I’ve seen couple of blogs on people visiting it already! Shouldn’t be an issue =)

          • Maybe I’ll bump into you. I’ll be in Seoul May 4-8. Update your blog once you get to all the locations. I will keep checking your blog post 😉

          • I’ll be there till 7 May! but i might not be hovering around Seoul, gonna explore the entire south korea. heh.
            yep i’ll continue to update my blog with the locations. can’t believe that it’s actually gonna end in 3 more episodes time..

          • I haven’t been to Jeju yet =( I’m wanting to visit it after I find a reliable driver/friend that can drive me around.. Haha.

          • ahh. i want to be able to drive around on our own without a driver! I did a road trip with some friends to Hokkaido and it was really awesome.. Oh wells, I just have to find the right mix of friends that drive.. haha.

  • Thank you for this article. I am currently preparing an itinerary for our trip to Korea and I came across your blog. Very helpful. It made my task easier. Good job!

  • Wow! Thank you for all of these informations! I am planning to go to Seoul this summer and this article will be helpful xP

    I live in Québec City (I actually saw them filming!!) and I also wanted to add a location. There is one street which is refered to as Paris in the first episode and it is actually in Québec City.

    http://cfile5.uf.tistory.com/image/230827425842084931BFEA ( I couldn’t find better pictures, as I do not own them. I only wanted to show you ^^)

    The street is Rue Sainte-Ursule. The address of the building where Kim Shin meets the young boy and the man, in front of two doors, is : 68 Rue Sainte-Ursule, Ville de Québec, QC G1R 4E6, Canada.

    • Hey! Thanks for sharing on this new location and oh my gosh you are so lucky to see them filming! I’m sure many of us are dead jealous!
      I will update this information and credit your name. Thank You!

    • Wow! You are a very luck person to have seen them while shooting. Thanks for this info. Hopefully I’ll push through with visiting Quebec City in the fall. 😆

  • Hey, thanks for compiling the location for the drama shooting. Is there any information where is the location of the photo booth in episode 13 ?

    • Glad that you found this post useful! I’m not sure about the photo booth though. Haven’t had information on it yet but I will update again when I have it!

  • Hey, do you know the place in episode 14 where Eun Tak and Kim Shin were eating in Quebec? It looks like a bridge with the hotel in the background.

    • THANK YOU!! I was looking for this information after the quebec hotel replied me that it wasn’t their hotel.. THANKS A MILLION!

      • No problem! This helps me ease the depressing feelings that Goblin has ended already 😢 At least we have something to still look back to and hopefully look forward to in our trips later 😆

        You’re doing an amazing job really. I only do things like these off radar, it’s nice to see someone like you is actually sharing out there to the other fans.

        • hahaha!! i guess.. i’m doing the sponsors a favour. without the sponsors, there won’t be a great production team with expensive cast.. so i guess i shall help them reach the maximum potential and dollar value of any form of sponsorship =p

          really glad to have the same hobby as you in location-stalking. heehee.

          • Location stalking is fun! Haha. We stood outside GD’s hotel in Paris last month and actually saw him for real haha. No sweat and breaking the bank, only determination and google maps 😂😂😂

  • Wow! I’m totally amazed at the effort you’ve put in and telling us the locations where the drama goblin filmed! Im so gonna go these places to take a shot! Withdrawal syndrome from the drama! Hahahaha will be waiting for your directions once you have the time to update! Thanks a lot!!!!

    • Thank you for your kind comment! Yep I’m having strong withdrawal symptoms too! and the sad thing is that legend of the blue sea is ending this week too.. I haven’t found my next drama to ‘chase’ yet plus I’m pretty fussy so I’m not sure if i’ll just watch any drama. I have done up the comparison for the locations in Quebec (drama vs google street view) so I guess you can check that out in the meantime.

  • Enjoyed your page greatly! I binge-watched the entire 16 episodes this past weekend, and then quickly bought all the songs from the series to my itunes. I only used a box & a half of tissues while watching! I wasn’t sure I would like it, being older than the main cast, but the plot was quite entertaining and the costumed bits were outstanding. Thank you for your great research on all the locations. The cinematography was awesome. Thank you again for all your information! I hope to travel to Quebec in about 3 years, so now I will have some sites to look for. And if one day I make it to Korea, I will surely seek out these wonderful places! Cheers from So. California!

    • Hi there! Thank you for leaving a comment! It must have been an overwhelming weekend to have watch 16 episodes all at once!! I watched it week by week so there was a lot of anticipation while watching the drama~~ Please do visit Quebec (since it is somewhat nearer from California)! It looks so beautiful, especially in autumn!

  • This is such an amazing list! All the info I need is in here ♡ Kamsahamnida!! But I also need to know the location of Sunny’s apartment building. The one where Eun Tak gets to live at in the rooftop when she was later working as a producer and the one Choi Woong used to live where he paid rents to Samshin. It still remember the red gate and the red stairs! They’re just really cute ♡

    • Hello! I am currently unsure about this location. I’ve read somewhere saying that it is the same place as “Secret Garden” drama but I can’t verify it on the daum/naver street view so I will only post the information once I have confirm that it is correct. Hope some readers can help me out too!

      • Ommo!!! Thank you so so so much <3 <3 <3 It is indeed Sunny's house since the blogger had confirmed it in her post. There are screenshots of Goblin episodes there! You are so great in researching! I should really commend you for it. I don't know how many thank yous will be enough for this.

        Keep up this awesome work!

  • hi …. i want to ask did you know where did the place where the grim reaper serves tea and the only goblin and the one who die can enter ….? and applause to you admin …. because of your post i wll know the exact destination i want to visit in korea …..

  • Thank you so much for the job well done. I am currently in Seoul and been staying around Jongno-gu area. I will check some of the shooting locations in Jongno-gu.

  • Wow, please update more when you finish tidying most of these locations and summarize/position. I like it, thanks for sharing all of these amazing filming locations, one question, did you went to all of the locations by yourself?

    • Hi there, I hope I will remember to update you when I’m done but it will take a while.
      Nope, I have yet to visit these locations as I haven’t been in Korea for the past 3 years!
      All the information were found online through extensive research and eye identification via the street view.
      Glad that you enjoyed this article!

  • Thanks for your hard work/ I want to know about the gold and black five peaks screen in the king’s palace. It is fantastic. Is it a piece of stage craft or is a work of art that I can investigate?

    • Hi Bonnie, I am not sure about the thing you are asking about. Could you post a screenshot of it? Perhaps other readers might know what it is.

  • I keep feeling the goblin house looks like the house in ‘I Remember You/Hello Monster’ drama. Look at the stairs in both the houses. The stairs is exactly the same. The main structure of the stairs and the surrounding… it’s exactly the same! One is fitted darker, the other brighter and more glittery. There can’t be 2 houses with such similarity unless it is the same?

    • Hey! thanks for leaving a comment. I have not watched that drama. Is it possible for you to provide some screenshots? I’ll try to do a bit of research about it in my free time! But if it is really the same house, it might likely to be a permanent studio set and I guess fans will not be able to visit unless they open it up for some exhibition or something.. Let’s see!

    • Hi Angel, I just watched “Hello Monster” and I can confirm that the film set is exactly the same! Even the kitchen scenes look familiar too~~

  • I really enjoy and thankful for the filming sites details. It helps a lot to find them. You really did a good work!
    (Ps: like my others, I also still curious to know where the house interior location hahaha. )

    • Thanks for leaving a comment! Glad that you find it useful.
      I guess the house interior is a studio set which means that it is unlikely to open up for public visit..

  • I have watched this drama and got entirely attached with this story specially the beautiful places where it was filmed. Many thanks to you for posting this places, at last I need to visit this for sure ☺☺ ☺ ♥ ♥ ♥

  • Dear Honeystar
    Really appreciated what you have shared for the above posting regarding ” Goblin Filming Location ” very informative .

    I am very impressed with this compact and concise information that you have shared.

    Once again thank you so much.

    In near future this posting will be my ” travel map to track goblin journey in Korea”.

    On top of that , I would like to share some personal comments / opinion as below :

    I personally thinks the internal filming location of goblin mansion , mainly are ( Self Created -” on the set/ shooting studio”, I commented on this due to I watched few of the goblin n off scene shooting it seems like ” special self created/ design shooting studio”.

    Remarks : I might be wrong , Goblin Fan from all over the world pls feel free to add in any comments .I feel sorry too as if in reality it is just a shooting studio and ruin your ideal or dream of ” Goblin Mansion”.

    Another possibility could be this shooting studio is still available in the TV Station , would appreaciate kindly let us know show there be any opening for public visit like per entrance fees.

    LOL above just a suggestion or wild guess-Golblin Fan pls add in should there be any further good update.

    Best Regards
    Cheryl Loo Yin Kwan

    • Hi there! I agree with you that the interior of goblin mansion is a set.. It is in fact the same set for another drama ‘Hello Stranger’ (Seok InGuk & Jang Nara). A reader commented on it and I ended up watching the entire drama (which was really good too) where the set looks exactly the same (as seen in the last two photos of my post)! If you notice too, they only film one angle view and hardly the other side so it’s quite obvious. I just hope that they will re-create the set like what they did for “You who came from the stars” and hold an exhibition so that fans can re-live the drama all over again.. can’t believe that it has been almost 2 months since the drama ended T_T

    • Ya I’m agree with you.I think that they maybe want to cut off the filming cost thats why some scene they filming in the studio set ^_^ Now we need to save money.. kekekeke

  • Thank you so much for sharing this! very informative post!! Hope we’ll be able to go to all the locations this coming May!❤❤❤
    Reading this made me even more excited to go back to Korea!

    • Glad that you enjoyed this post! all the best for your trip in May and do share with me your photos when you are back!

  • Hi i went 2 ,3 places however for the exterior of the goblin’s house the guard does not let me in…when i asked is it close today ? He put x hand and said everyday….anyone here face the same problem? Or do they have any other entrance ? Lol

  • Hi.

    Naju Image Theme Park was also the location of:
    -“Jumong” – Kingdom of (Dong)buyeo
    -“Kingdom of the Wind” – Goguryeo during King Yuri
    -“The Legend” – Goguryeo during King Gwanggaeto
    -“Empress Cheonchu / Iron Empress” – Goryeo during the 3rd generation of the royal family
    (Dowager Queen Cheonchu = Queen Heon’ae, daughter of Wang Wook (yes 8th prince) & widow of (paternal cousin) King Gyeongjong)
    -“Jeon Woo-chi” – legendary Kingdom of Yuldo established by Hong Gil-dong

    And just recently “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart”. I specifically remember the courtyard as the setting of the narye (the ceremony warding off evil spirits from the palace AKA attempted assasination plot against the Crown Prince) & the rain ceremonies (where Wang So ended the drought and Hae Soo foresaw Wang So as King Gwangjong).

  • Hi i love this article… im a fan of this K-Drama… i would like to ask is fo you have any news about the place where sunny and Eun-tak stayed in episode 14 to 16? The rooftop..

  • Hi, thanks for sharing this!! Love 💝 all your posts and informations. I am looking forward to your map on the film locations in Quebec! I can’t wait to visit it!! 🙏

  • WOW!! such good info.. i plan to visit Korea soon, so these perfect info is such a blessing.. GOBLIN is indeed my TOP K-Drama now… Can’t get over it even though it end months ago.
    Maybe you can suggest the route in a MAP or something. So that a non-Korean like me (not familiar with the name of those places) can easily follow it.

    • Hi there, it is hard to suggest a route as I’ve not visited the places myself. However, if you copy and paste the address to google maps or something, it should be able to mark out the route and directions for you. Sorry that I am not able to help.

  • Hi there! Just want to thank you for this very informative and interesting article. My friends and I will visit Seoul this July and kinda excited to see these locations. Of course, Goblin brought us here:) Keep us posted and informed. I love you’re site!

    • thank you for leaving a comment! glad to see that many readers found my post useful~~ hope you will get to visit these locations in july when you are there! have a great day~

  • Hi,

    I was only able to comment and say my thanks now, but kept visiting your site when we were in Seoul to check the locations within our area.. Thanks to this I was able to reenact some of my fave scenes.. 😁.. posted the link to your site for info credit on my blog..

    Thanks a bunch!

    • Thank you for sharing your writeup on the goblin filming location! So nice to see that you’ve successfully found the locations and I hope you had a great time in Korea too!

  • whaaaa.. your blog is daebak! I already wanted to go to korea because of the beautiful places where the drama goblin shoots..

    • Thanks for your comment! I agree that Korea is a beautiful place too~~ Look forward to my blog entries about my Korea trip which should be completed in a few weeks time (I am currently in Korea)! However, I didn’t manage to visit any Goblin locations in this trip.. Oh wells. hah.

      • I’m looking forward to the map that you’ll do.. Maybe I should start saving up to be able to travel to that places! 🙂 BTW , thank you for making this article.. I really hook up to this drama! I still can’t move on until now. 🙂 and also have a safe trip there in S. Korea!

    • Hello, I am really not sure about their filming schedules but if I didn’t recall wrongly, they were spotted in Canada sometime in September for all the autumn footages. It was a live-filming drama which meant that they were still filming even after the drama started airing. During the airing schedule, there was a week without episode (they gave a special episode) because there wasn’t enough time to edit the special effects required for the drama. Sorry that I’m not able to help!

  • Hi! Do you know where the grandfather’s mansion is? LOL remember the episode where Secretary Kim danced to Chairman Yoo Shin-woo ?? huhuhuhu I wanna know where that mansion is located :((( Thank you!!!

    • Hi there. Thanks for your comment but I don’t think I know the location of the mansion. Sorry that I am unable to help~~

  • Thanks Honey for these information 🙂
    I’m Canada based and used to live in Montreal, Quebec but moved here in Calgary Alberta and can’t wait to visit my previous home. By Goblin I am more eager to visit Montreal and Quebec 🙂

    • Thanks for leaving a comment! I hope you will make it to Quebec in Spring where the leaves are all yellow!! I hope to visit Canada some day too~~ but I guess it will take me a while.
