How far will you go to prove your worth as a Kdrama fan?
For a Filipina migrant in Korea, Andrea Carla Cepe, she didn't mind traveling from Busan to a far flung town of Taean just to visit the house of Captain Ri Jeong Hyeok, the main character of the latest Kdrama craze in Korea, Crash Landing On You. She traveled a whopping 5 hours just to visit the place. According to her, the location of the house is very far from the city and it would take more than 5 hours to go there if you commute if you came from the South and probably around 3 hours if from Seoul.
Although the house is depicted to be located in North Korea, Taean is still actually part of South Korea, so yes, it is still possible to go there.
For those of you who are interested to visit this place, these are the information you need to know:
* The best time to go there is before 8 am because apparently, the area is guarded during daytime and you may not allowed to enter the house if you go there after 8 am
*As I've said, the place is very far, the complete address is this:
충남 태안군 고남면 안면대로 3741-119
(Chungnam Taean-gun gonam-myeon anmyeondaero 3741-119)
*Accordingly, they set up the house to be used as one of the filming locations of the TV series and they will about to demolish this.
*Andrea visited this place last February 15, 2020 and is still there as of this writing. However, we don't know when they're going to demolish the house, so better do a research before you go there.
For some of us who unfortunately can't go there physically, let's watch Andrea as she will tour us virtually in the house of Captain Ri Jeong Hyeok:
