[Filming Location] While You Were Sleeping (In Progress)



I just started watching this drama and things seems a little interesting so far! I’m starting up this post to see if there’s any demand or requests for me to do the full location blogging like what I’ve done for Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, Legend of the Blue Seas and Goblin. So if you want me to continue with this post, please leave a comment in this post. THANK YOU!

[Episode 1]


Address: 57 Jungang-ro 67beon-gil, Chuncheon, Gangwon-do, Republic of Korea

Chuncheon Bus Stop

The search for this bus stop was pretty challenging as this was not a real bus stop. If you check the street view on naver/daum maps, the bus stop does not exist. I had to do a matching of physical surroundings and buildings to confirm the exact location of this place in Chuncheon.

Estimated Address: 680-2 Hyoja 1(il)-dong, Chuncheon, Gangwon-do, South Korea

[Episode 2]

Address: 4-15 Hwayang-dong, Gwangjin-gu, Seoul, South Korea

Information Credit: http://ififollowme.blogspot.sg/2017/10/while-you-were-sleeping-konkuk.html

Ttukseom Resort Station, Line 7, Exit 1

Estimated Coordinates: 37.5321096, 127.0671596 (plot on Google Maps)

Sometimes I question my sanity. how on earth did I manage to guess-timade this station. I guess the production crew is like effort max to try and mask the station but I guess I’m up for the challenge! It took me quite a while to find it and it is 100% my effort without any help from any korean blogs. oh gawd. how did i do it.

Note: It is likely that this is the station where they were talking (where suzy passed LJS the umbrella and he rejected)

[Samgyeopsal Shop] in Mapo-gu

Real Name of Shop: 마포 소금구이&돼지껍데기

Estimated Address: 477-9 Mangwon-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul, South Korea
서울 마포구 월드컵로 143 (우)03963 (Near Mapo Office Station, Exit 5)

This is a legit meat shop, but the name was changed for the show. If you look through the naver maps street view, you will notice that the shop changed the name (to the one in the show) in the screen capture dated June 2017. However, the screen capture in August 2017, shows that the signboard has been replaced to its original name.
