I’ll let you in on a secret. More than a decade ago, when I was a huge K-Pop fangirl (raise your hand if you started fangirling K-pop and K-drama oppas in the early 2000’s!), I really wanted to go to Korea to see my favorite Korean boyband, Shinhwa. While that didn’t happen, because I thought getting a visa was so hard, and basically because all my money went to merch, I made sure that now that I am a grownup, and I know that getting a South Korean visa is a breeze, that I would at least go there, if not to see my idols from the past, to at least do a DIY K-Drama tour.
I am not as hardcore a fangirl as I used to be, and I rarely ever watch K-dramas anymore (pffft, I just marathoned Black on Netflix. Teehee), but I thought it would be a great experience to check out some of the famous TV drama locations in Seoul on my second trip to South Korea.
