Alright this Kim Soo Hyun + Jun Ji Hyun drama, My love from the Stars 별에서온그대 has been really popular these days and it is currently airing in Korea!
As always, I was attracted to a particular scene in the drama and I went mad trying to find the filming location.
(It took me two unsuccessful nights of searching through key words in google images. I found it on a Instagram hashtag eventually.)
The location was featured at the end of episode 6 & the start of episode 7 where the second lead brought the girl to an amusement park, just to ride the Ferris wheel.
No it was not as pretty as the one on Wolmi-do but the round and colourful carriage attracted me.
Also, the backdrop of the castle was memorable too.

Where is this beautiful place located?
Address: 68 Tongdo 7-Gil, Habuk-myeon, Yangsan-si, Gyeongsangnam-do, South Korea
It is located between Yangsan and Ulsan (Southwest of Seoul) and it is very inaccessible. From the only korean website: http://www.fantasia.co.kr/main.htm, it seems like they are only catering to the local korean market for now. However, thanks to google translate, I manage to navigate rather decently on the website.
There are public buses to this place from Busan, Ulsan and Yangsan:
|Long-distance non-stop (three won)||Busan Bus Terminal (Nopo-dong)||Sinpyeong (Tongdosa)||20 minutes||40 minutes||Finish the
|Ulsan Intercity Bus Terminal (Samsan)||Sinpyeong (Tongdosa)||5th (one day)||40 minutes|
|Yangsan my bus (number 12)||Myeongryundong metro station||Sinpyeong (Tongdosa)||10 minutes||80 minutes|
|Yangsan my bus (63)||Eonyang Intercity Bus Terminal||Sinpyeong (Tongdosa)||10 minutes||40 minutes|
|Yangsan my bus (67 times)||Dreaming of the subway station||Sinpyeong (Tongdosa)||14th (one day)||80 minutes|
They have also done a feature of the drama in their website:
It is only 26,000W for an adult ticket. A really reasonable price compared to Everland and Lotte World. They have rides that looks really exciting and thrilling but there are kiddy rides as well.
I also chanced upon this interesting sky bike too. I really want to try such a ride some day.
FYI: They were in a green cabin.
Beautiful place 🙂
Not very certain that I will visit this place in future due to its inaccessibility but who knows? I might just make it happen somehow =p
