Here is a nice thought…as soon as you get off the plane in Incheon…you are already following in Jung II-woo’s leaps! (I decided to use our frog’s natural way of getting around!) Think about it how many times Jung II-woo has walked in that airport… a lot!!!
I think the natural way to do this is to write down the places where he grew up, went to school and has been because of work… and from there link them to places one can visit. Depending how much of a fan you are, and how much money you have, you can cover more or less…

So…let’s start with schooling…
Update 8-18. I created a Jung II-woo Schooling Tour! You can access it HERE. I discovered that all of Jung II-woo schools are really close to each other!
Daelim Elementary School
서울특별시 동작구 대방동 대방동1길 22
Seongnam Middle School
서울특별시 동작구 대방동 대방동길 74
Young Deung Po High School
서울특별시 동작구 대방동 등용로8길 5
I found this in Naver: Cr. Naver
“It is a public high school in Daebang-dong, Dongjak-gu, Seoul. It was opened on April 7, 1959, with the foundation of Yeongdeungpo High School on March 13, 1959. On October 12, 1959, he moved to 13-2, Daebang-dong, a new middle school. On February 2, 1962, the first graduation ceremony was held.
On October 1, 1968, Yeongdeungpo Junior High School was separated from the principal. On January 10, 1979, I was approved as a broadcasting and communication high school. The lesson is “pioneering, cooperation, service”, the branch is ginkgo, and the edification is rose. There are club activities such as classical guitar, gwanak, kyoji, dance, rock band, physics, art, broadcasting, drama, and interactive. It is located at 13-2 Daebang-dong, Dongjak-gu, Seoul.”
Seoul College of Arts and Sciences
I found a possible Korean class there as well…two weeks…in the summer! Can you imagine! You can roam the university he went to as a student yourself…wow!!!
And they have a Tour of Scenic Points!
Here I will post sights from the different dramas as I find them.
The Garden BCJ or The Byeokchoji Garden ( 벽초지문화수목원) Also known as the Botanical Gardens in Paju.
This is a must see, not just for 49 Days but many dramas! Boys Over Flowers, You are Beautiful, City Hunter and Bride of the Water God to name a few! This is the place where you see Jung II-woo as the scheduler walking and talking among the statues. This part of the Garden is called “The Western Garden.”
This is the official website all in Korean…let me tell you it’s worth the visit just for the photos!!! Look:

You can get all the information about its address right here.
You can also read a blogger’s account of visiting this garden here.

Also from 49 Days, I just discovered the park where Jung II-woo and Lee Yo-won filmed that lovely picnic together. Remember?
Yes! This lovely scene was shot in a park called “Bundang Central Park” in the Gyeonggi Province.
Sadly I could not find quality shots of this park, but just these two really small ones:
A little more effort and I found this one…the walk where you see Jung II-woo under the cherry blossoms is to the right of the photo, it’s a raised walkway under the trees… the top of the hill! It must be so beautiful in the Spring!
A page about the park is here. It includes the address.
What a sight that would be with Jung II-woo in it!
Flower Boys Ramyun Shop
I just found out that the restaurant where they filmed Flower Boy Ramyun Shop! It actually exists!!! I’ll write it down here for now! I’m so happy! I can’t wait to see it!
Website This website is really cool, it has locations of many K-dramas!
November 21, 2018 Update
I found the restaurant where Jung II-woo took the CeCi Magazine (October issue) photoshoot with A-woo! It is called: Breeze Bon Wine Cafe.
It’s in “Foursquare,” here, but the Turkish one! But fear not just ask your Google Chrome to translate it to English. Here are some screen shots. Cr. Foursquare.
March 5, 2018 Update
The Moon that Embraces the Sun (Update: February 24, 2019, And all of Jung Il-woo’s Saeguks!)
While posting about this drama, I bumped into a few mentions of places where this drama was filmed. They are:
Dae Jang Geum Park (previously known as Yongin MBC Dramia).
This is where those panoramic shots of the palace were done, those beautiful walks inside the palace of King Hwon and scenes like the final battle took place… imagine you can stand right where Prince Yang Myung died!
Update! February 24, 2019. I wrote a complete post about this place HERE. It has tons of photos, videos and correlations to the dramas.
I want to peek out of this circular window… Can’t wait to see these! I love circles!!!
Korea Folk Village
This is the place where they shot a lot of the market and general commoners areas.
This is the guide map. It’s pretty big…
