Korea's Drama Sets

Korea's Drama Sets

Aside from K-POP, the number one export from Korea are its dramas. Korean Dramas are seen around the globe and loved my millions. In fact, I've seen contemporary Korean Dramas dubbed into other languages when traveling they're that popular. Today, I take you onto the Korean Drama sets in Suncheon. They're reportedly the nation's largest, although say some are bigger.

Walking the back lots, I was thrown back in time. The sets are divided into two areas. One was used in the Korean Drama "East of Eden." There are several sets depicting Japanese Colonial rule here as well. By far the more interesting part of the trip was walking the "Seoul Hill" area, depicting a poor area from the 1960s-1970s. It was awesome and really authentic.

To get there, take bus 77, 99, or 777 from the Bus/Train Station and get off at the Drama Set stop. Admission is W3,000. They are open every day from 9am - 6pm.

If you could visit any TV or movie set, which one would you visit?
