K-drama Filming Location: Changdeok Palace

Leave a comment

K-dramas such as “Kingdom”, “Jewel in the Palace”, “The Crowned Clown”, “Rooftop Prince”, etc. are just some of the dramas that were partly filmed in Changdeokgung. Changdeokgung, however, is more than just a Korean drama filming location. It is one of South Korea’s UNICEF Cultural Heritage Sites and a favorite residence of many kings of the Joseon Dynasty. Find out why in this vlog.

Because of the pandemic, there are currently no palace tours in Changdeokgung, but it’s open to the public from 9:00 AM to 5:30 or 6:00 PM depending on the month.

My friends and I took a stroll around the palace and its vast garden on Wednesday. There weren’t a lot of visitors, so I suggest you go there on a weekday. Palace admission is free, but if you want to explore the famous Secret Garden, you should pay 5,000 Won for a ticket. (2,500 Won for children)

Bring bottled water and wear flats, because you’ll be walking a lot. Don’t fret, the walk won’t tire you. The view is magnificent and the sound of nature will relax you. You won’t even feel time pass.

There are packages available for visiting nearby palaces. If you want to feel like a character from your favorite K-drama, you can rent a hanbok there and do a photoshoot, but please be reminded that resting on the benches, buildings and pavilions is not allowed. Food is also not permitted, so you can’t have a picnic there.

How to get to Changdeokgung:

By Subway to Anguk Station, take Seoul Subway Line 3, Exit 3

By Subway to Jongno 3-ga Station, take Seoul Subway Line 1,3,5, Exit 6 or 7

By Bus, take Bus Number 109, 151, 162, 171, 172, 272, 7025, Get off at Changdeokgung Palace bus stop.

Hair Makeover Turns into a Hair Disaster

Leave a comment

Hello, everyone! 안녕하세요! It’s been ages since we last updated our site, FROM KOREA WITH LOVE. A lot of things have happened in our long absence, both challenging and gratifying, but we are still here — stronger than ever, wiser in making choices as an intercultural couple and more optimistic and happier than we have ever been.

We are still going to bring you stories of our life as a Korean-Filipino couple and insights into Korean culture (sometimes the latest happenings in Korea), but this time, we’re going to do it via web TV. That’s right! FROM KOREA WITH LOVE is on Youtube!

We have tons of things to share with you!

Hubby has been busy lately, so for our first vlog, he’s merely a guest. (So does that mean I got the starring role? ㅋㅋㅋ) You’ll see more of him in the next vlogs.

Check out FKWL’s first vlog.

I wanted to get a hair makeover, because the first vlog was supposed to be about Korean beauty products. (Syempre dapat beautiful kapag beauty products ang topic, diba?)

Unfortunately, the makeover turned into a hair disaster!
