"Goodbye, my youth!"

This might surprise you, but Reply 1988 wasn't actually filmed in Ssangmun-dong, Seoul. The iconic street where our favorite K-drama families lived was actually a set built in Uijeongbu City in Gyeonggi Province. According to Soompi, the set was supposed to be preserved as a tourist attraction, but because it was built near the Uijeongbu Stadium, "there was a limit to letting it remain as a tourist attraction or as a set for other dramas." So...it was actually demolished! Don't worry, according to the site Korean Dramaland, there are many Reply 1988 locations you can still visit:
