The thought of seeing these places gives us all the feels!

With South Korea opening its doors to the world again, we bet you're already planning your itinerary to the Land of the Morning Calm. The country has so much to offer for every type of tourist—K-drama fans included! From an Instagram-worthy amusement park to a tranquil farm, it's about time for you to recreate scenes from your favorite series in these iconic destinations.

Here are filming locations from recent K-dramas that await for you to discover:

1. Cheongjin 3-ri Fishermen's Welfare Center

Address: 1884-2 Haean-ro, Cheongha-myeon, Buk-gu, Pohang, Gyeongsangbuk-do, South Korea

It's going to be a beautiful and shining day when you visit the Cheongjin 3-ri Fishermen's Welfare Center in Pohang. You'll remember this as a building in Gongjin, aka the (fictional) seaside village from Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha. The first floor of the welfare center is a scuba diving resort while the second floor houses a café with a very familiar interior. That's because it used to be the Yoon Dental Clinic (owned by our resident dentist Yoon Hye-Jin) and it's now a place where you can dine as you admire the sea!

2. Sewoon Plaza

Address: 162 Cheonggyecheon-ro, Jung-gu, Seoul, South Korea

There are no gold bars hidden in this building but you'll surely find other treasures in the many stores located here. Situated at the heart of Seoul, the Sewoon Plaza is known as the Geumga Plaza in Vincenzo and you've also seen it in Netflix's My Name and in Inspector Koo. The 50-year-old shopping center is home to a lot of electronics shops and it's also where you can find artworks for sale. Don't forget to visit the rooftop and pretend you're brainstorming ala Vincenzo Cassano, Hong Cha Young, and Mr. Nam as you drink Maxim coffee from a paper cup!

3. Jaha Super

Address: 57 Jahamun-ro 42-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea

Jaha Super seems to be the go-to mini-mart for K-dramas (as well as movies and music videos) because of the number of series that were filmed here, even ones released in 2009! The neighborhood market was established in the early 1970s and it continues to run its business today. In Our Beloved Summer, Jaha Super is a grocery store near a bus stop (Yeon Soo and Choi Woong shared a kiss here before our leading lady went to work). It's the place where we've witnessed Yeon Soo's efforts for Choi Woong when she showered him with flower petals after missing a cherry blossom date. Our favorite line from this scene? "She showed this side of her only to me, so I couldn't help but love her."

4. Sea Life Busan Aquarium

Address: 266, Haeundaehaebyeon-ro, Haeundae-gu, Busan, South Korea

Heading to Busan? You might want to make a stopover in this aquarium located near the Haeundae Beach! Sea Life Busan Aquarium was featured in the tearjerker drama Move To Heaven many times, from Han Geu Ru's childhood with his parents up to the day when his father died. With more than 10,000 aquatic animals on display, eight themed zones, and multiple experiences to discover, you'll surely have a blast here as you learn more about marine life.

5. Sanneomi Farm

Address: 210 Sanneomi-gil, Mitan-myeon, Pyeongchang-gun, Gangwon-do, South Korea

Our queen of self-care Chae Song-Hwa from Hospital Playlist loves camping on weekends. No matter her busy schedule, she will find time to do this hobby that helps her relax and find healing. In season two of the medical drama, she went camping with Ik Jun and Uju in the mountains, which is actually a farm IRL! The Sanneomi Farm is a breeding place for native black goats and the area has become a car camping site. According to a staff from the farm, the scene in Hospital Playlist 2 was recorded at the top of the trail that requires a 20 to 30-minute climb.

6. Lotte World

Address: 240 Olympic-ro, Songpa-gu, Seoul, South Korea

Alexa, play "Love, Maybe" while we imagine ourselves with our own Kang Tae-Moo! In episode eight of Business Proposal, the CEO brought Shin Ha-Ri here and they had a heart-fluttering date. Owned by the South Korean conglomerate Lotte Group, Lotte World is more than just an indoor amusement park (it's the largest in the world!)—it also has an outdoor artificial island next to a lake. Every now and then, Lotte World has surprises for its visitors from themed parades to a Money Heist Korea promotion. Other dramas that were filmed here: Our Beloved Summer, True Beauty, and Love Alarm.
