She went to the Kingdom of Corea!

The King: Eternal Monarch is airing its last episode on Friday, June 12, which gives us a few more days to brace ourselves for the possibility of a heartbreaking finale. And while there's always a feeling of loss when a K-drama endsespecially ones we found ourselves deeply invested in—we'll still be grateful for the experience of being transported into another world. It's no wonder a lot of us Hallyu fans have visited or plan to visit our favorite drama filming locationsand one such drama is the current hit The King: Eternal Monarch.

One lucky Pinay who's had the chance to visit some key locations is 29-year-old Imee "Mee" Aresta-Lee, a licensed teacher who lives in Korea. She's the same fan who visited Captain Ri's (Hyun Bin) village in Crash Landing on You and Jung Tae Eul's (Kim Go Eun) house in TKEM. This time, she got to travel all the way to the fictional Kingdom of Corea, which was mostly shot in Busan! (FYI, in the drama, the Kingdom's capital is located in Busan and not in Seoul.)
