With time on our side, nothing can really stop us from binge watching our favourite Korean shows day and night. However, beyond the thrill of seeing these swoon-worthy actors play different roles and engage in riveting storylines, aren’t we all particularly curious as to where they film all these star-studded shows?
In case you’ve been staying up to date with the latest drama craze, we’re sure you’ve encountered a handful of scenes being shot at one familiar library. Tall, brown wooden shelves, an array of colourful books, and spacious contemporary interior—do these sound familiar to you? If not, we can take a trip down memory lane first!
Now that you remember, then we're pretty sure you long to take some pics in this scenic location! Well, you're certainly in luck because we found the exact Korean library where these were all filmed.
Situated in Paju Book City, Gyeonggi-do, the Forest of Wisdom Library can most certainly be called an Instagrammable bibliophilia haven. Its floor-to-ceiling wooden shelves boast over 500,000 books spanning multiple genres like poetry, fiction novels, and essays.
Having said that, if you’re a book lover, you can surely find a nook and settle in for a good read. A few hours away from Seoul, the library’s modern contemporary design has attracted many tourists and has become a hotspot for our beloved K-drama settings. See all other K-dramas that have also featured the same scenic library!
