Finally! A drama that I have anticipated for so long~~
The last time both leads starred in a drama was back in 2016 and it’s a pretty interesting storyline as there’s a huge age gap between the both leads so I wonder how the chemistry will fly but then again, both are really really good at acting so let’s see!
As per my usual arrangement, I will be blogging on the go and adding on to the list of filming locations, given that I have not given up on the drama. There were a couple of dramas this year and last year which I dropped halfway through and did not continue writing about them. Fingers crossed that the storyline is good enough for me to finish it!
Similar to the other big production dramas (like Descendants of the Sun, Goblin and Legends of the Blue Sea), there’s an overseas filming portion and this time round – it is all the way in Cuba, a country in a continent that I’ve never set foot on before. The only knowledge I know of Cuba is from my history textbook and the place called ‘Havana’ from the song. Oops.
As the drama is still filming, the locations that I have indicated below could be from fan accounts or other sources. When the actual episode is aired and I am able to match the scene to the location, I will do up the screenshot + provide the address and the usual stuff like all my other posts so please do bear with me =)
El Morro, Malecón, Havana
Hotel Nacional de Cuba
- Namsan Library
- Tongin Traditional Market
- Lotte Resort Sokcho
- Naksan Beach
[Lotte Resort Sokcho @ Sokcho]
Address: 186 Daepohang-gil, Daepo-dong, Sokcho-si, Gangwon-do, South Korea
강원도 속초시 대포동 대포항길 186
This is an actual hotel location (see booking details) at a very scenic spot in Sokcho. The price ranges around $200-300 SGD but given the huge facility with water slides, it seems like a very fun place to stay for a family. There’s even an indoor water theme park and you can find more details from their official website: https://www.lotteresortsokcho.com/en/
[RaRaMuRi (망상해변) @ Jeongdongjin, Gangneung]
Address: 491-1 Jeongdongjin-ri Gangdongmyeon Gangneung-si Gangwon-do
강원도 강릉시 강동면 정동진리 491-1
When the scene first appeared in the drama, I thought that it looked rather familiar because of that peculiar lamp post and it turns out to be the same filming location as ‘The Legend of the Blue Seas’ where I blogged about previously in 2016.
The owner of the place has also done some picture compilations for this drama on his naver site: https://blog.naver.com/xurykim/221414027029
Really want to visit this place some day!
[Along Hongjecheon @ Hongjae-dong]
Nearest Train Station: Gajwa
Estimated Address: 695-1 Yeonhui-dong, Seodaemun-gu, Seoul, South Korea
This estate seems pretty interesting and the art painting display seems to be legit and it runs along the stream which has a cycling and running track.
The Hongjecheon is a stream that flows towards the Hangang River and if you walk alongside the stream, you may even spot a waterfall (see IG: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bh0xKyRB88i/) which I felt was really cool~~
