Our fave K-drama Crash Landing On You is down to its last two episodes, but that doesn't mean our love for Captain Ri (Hyun Bin) and Se-ri (Son Ye Jin) will end there. In fact, if you're traveling to South Korea soon, you could actually visit some of the show's shooting locations!
A CLOY setting that we all know and love is the *village* where Captain Ri lives. According to a Facebook post by Mee In Korea, the shooting location is located in Taean, South Korea (141-1 Janggok-ri, Gonam-myeon, Taean-gun, Chungcheongnam-do) and is approximately a three-hour drive from Seoul. An important landmark to remember when visiting the place is the Moseokwon pension house.
Here are some photos of Captain Ri's house:
The Mee In Korea page belongs to Imee "Mee" Aresta-Lee, a 29-year-old licensed teacher from the Philippines who moved to SK after marrying her Korean husband. At present, they have a one-year-old baby!
Mee found the village location when she saw someone post a photo on Instagram. She shared, "I showed it to my husband and he said that it's really far from our house. But the next day, I was surprised when he asked me if I wanted to go there. It was a long three-hour drive from our house. That 'village' located in Taean is the first filming location of CLOY that I visited, I will visit the other locations soon." Aww, this is too cute!
As of February 11, the place was open to the public! There's no way of knowing if the village will be accessible ~forever~, but you can still try your luck. If you're commuting, Mee advised: "You can try to use [a] bus from Seoul terminal in Gangnam going to Taean, then from Taean terminal you can use the bus or taxi going to Moseokwon pension house. Pagdating sa pension house, be ready sa lakaran papunta dito sa 'North Korean' village dahil hindi puwede ang sasakyan sa loob." It's better to go there early because taxis are rare. It will also be a big help if you check the city bus schedule ahead of time.
