We're still on a Hi Bye, Mama! high, and our love for the show *intensified* when we spotted Pinoys at the actual filming locations of the show! On May 1, Maricel Tabudlong, along with her friends Leslie Bejasa, Sheila Bables, and Jasper Dimarucut, posted photos of their trip to several Hi Bye, Mama! filming locations. At present, they are all based in South Korea.
Here are snaps from Seo-woo's preschool:
In a quick chat via Facebook Messenger, Maricel shared that the New Seoul Kindergarten is located at 312 Sinjeong1-deong, Yangcheon-gu, Seoul.
We also see that walkway, where so many revelations took place:
Here's the restaurant where Yu-ri, Min-jeong, and Dong-mi spent many happy nights together:
The actual restaurant, Dotori Brothers, is located at 41 Gyeonghuigung-gil, Sajik-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul.
Maricel also shared what she loves most about Hi Bye, Mama!: "Through this drama, I learned that we have to show [people] our love before it's too late. We have to treasure every minute we have with our families because no one knows what will happen tomorrow. It really touches your heart."
Hi Bye, Mama! tells the story of a ghost named Yu-ri (played by Kim Tae Hee) who has been *hovering* for the past five years. When she's given the chance to become human again for 49 days, she must *find her place* with her husband and daughter in order not to die again. There's just one problem: Her husband has remarried and Yu-ri's daughter believes that her stepmom is her birth mother.
