Starring

Choii Kang-chi (Actor Lee Seung-gi)

His father is Koo Weol-ryeong, a guardian spirit of Mt. Jiri and his mother is Seo-hwa, making him a half-human and half-animal. Unbeknownst that he was born half-human and half-animal, he is abandoned by his mother who left him floating in a basket in a river. He is found by merchant Park Mu-sol who runs the Baeknyeongaekgwan. Kang-chi is impulsive, reactionary, and uses physical force before thinking twice. He starts life anew after encountering Dam Yeo-wul and Yi Sun-shin.

Dam Yeo-wul (Actress Suzy, member of MISS A)

She joins her father who was tasked with the job of investigating a series of murders by Yi Sun-shin. She crosses paths with Gang-chi who is falsely accused of committing murder. While Kang-chi always caused trouble, Yeo-wul discovers his innermost secret. This makes her feel sympathy for him. Even after knowing the truth that Kang-chi is half-human and half-animal, she trusts that he will not harm people and stands by his side. She is the only person who can calm down Kang-chi when he goes on a rampage.

Yi Sun-shin (Actor Yoo Dong-geun)

After being appointed as governor of Jeolla Province by Yoo Seong-ryong, he was the first official to detect the presence of Japanese spies in the Joseon kingdom. After learning that Won Gyun controls the royal palace and all the key royal administrations, he asks Dam Pyeong-jun, who oversaw a secret army of men, to spy on Japanese spies. One day, he encounters a strange boy called Kang-chi. Although Kang-chi appears to be a human, Yi Sun-shin discovers that there is another power that lies within him. So he puts Kang-chi under the charge of Dam Pyeong-jun, asking him to lead the boy towards a right path. Whenever Kang-chi is in a perilous situation, Lee Sun-shin will appear to show him a meaningful lesson to learn from the situation. He is Kang-chi's eternal mentor and hero.

Destination Kdrama: Korean Drama Filming Locations To Visit! Gu Family Book, Secret Garden, Love Rain

Last time, we introduced the filming locations for a popular television variety show called "We Got Married." This week, we'll be showing you the different Korean drama filming locations in Korea, including the filming sets and shooting sites in "Gu Family Book," "Secret Garden," and "Love Rain"!

The now-airing historical drama, "Gu Family Book," features K-pop idols, miss A's Suzy and Lee Seung Gi. Since "Gu Family Book" is a historical drama, most of the filming took place in the Korean Folk Village located in Gyeonggi-do.

Destination Kdrama: Korean Drama Filming Locations To Visit! Gu Family Book, Secret Garden, Love Rain

The folk village showcases the lifestyle and private houses in the olden days during the Chosun Dynasty. Inside the village, there is an exhibit containing commonly used items from the era, and there are also sometimes special events like traditional wedding reenactments.

Many of the Korean historical dramas, including "Gu Family Book" and "The Moon That Embraces The Sun," had scenes that were filmed inside the village. The setting was fitting for historical drama scenes that needed to show local markets and private houses of commoners.

If you would like to visit the folk village and relive the memories of Lee Seung Gi, Suzy, Kim Soo Hyun, and Han Ga-In, or simply want to check out where the historical Korean drama scenes are filmed, you may take the subway and bus to get to the folk village.

Operating hours for the village change slightly throughout the seasons, but they always open at 9:30am sharp every day. The folk village closes earlier in the winter and opens longer for the summer. Next time you have a chance to visit Korea, be sure to make a stop at the folk village!

Destination Kdrama: Korean Drama Filming Locations To Visit! Gu Family Book, Secret Garden, Love Rain

Another classic and popular Korean drama was "Secret Garden," which aired in 2010 and starred actors like Ha Ji-Won, Hyun Bin, and Yoo In Na. One of the most memorable scenes from the drama was when Hyun Bin first met Ha Ji Won. The place where the two first met was at Petite France, a small French cultural community area located in Gapyeong.

Petite France was not only where "Secret Garden" was filmed, but it is also dedicated to the French novel called "Le Petit Prince." There is even a memorial hall inside for Saint-Exupery, who is the author of the novel. Petite France is a cluster of white buildings with French architecture, and fans of "The Little Prince" may also find it interesting to visit the place!
