My Sassy Girl- Themed Travel- Filming Location

Have you ever heard "I Believe" sang by Shin Seung Hun. Until now, the song always play in my mind whenever I need calm mood. It was an OST song for a blockbuster Korean movie entitled My Sassy Girl. My Sassy Girl (Korean엽기적인 그녀; literally, That Bizarre Girl) is a 2001 South Korean romantic comedy film directed by Kwak Jae-yong. It tells the story of a man's chance meeting with a drunk girl on the train which changes his life. It is ostensibly based on a true story posted on the internet in a series of blog posts written by Kim Ho-sik, which was later adapted into a novel.
The film was extremely successful in South Korea and was the highest grossing Korean comedy of all time.When My Sassy Girl was released throughout East Asia, it became a mega blockbuster hit in the entire region, from JapanChinaTaiwanHong Kong, as well as Southeast Asia, to the point where it was drawing comparisons to Titanic.
An American remake, starring Jesse Bradford and Elisha Cuthbert, and directed by Yann Samuell was released in 2008. A Japanese drama adaptation with Tsuyoshi Kusanagiand actress Rena Tanaka as the leads started broadcasting in April 2008.
As usual... Let's us travel and see the best attractive locations captured in this movie. This movie is one of my favourite movie ever ^-^ Let's check it out....!!!
Baekun Nongjang Farm 1

Baekun Nongjang Farm 2- My Sassy Girl scene
The 1st scene captured in one of my dream place to go in South Korea which is Baekun Nongjang Farm. Remember where the two lovers in My Sassy Girl promised to meet after two years as they buried a time capsule. It is up a small hill with a lone pine tree in Jeongseon-gun, Gangwon-do. This little hill overlooks Baekun Nongjang Farm, which has a grand cabbage patch and other vegetable gardens. Many lovers visit this hill because the most moving scene of the movie occurred here. The best time to visit is in the summer when the hill is carpeted with lively and intense green. It is an excellent place to take memorable walks with your loved-ones.
2 Days 1 Night TV program
More over... For those who are 2 Days 1 Night fans, you must be remember that their 1st episode shooting locations was at the Sassy Girl Lone Pine tree at Baekun Nongjang Farm... The specialties right there is not only on the Lone Pine tree but right there... As you can see in the picture above, there are lots of square thing on the floor. Well, that is a time capsule which you can rent according your time period. There is a payment rate according how long will you keep your time capsule right there ^_^

Misari Regatta Course 1

Misari Regatta Course 2
The second scene is at Misari Regatta Course. In this scene the sassy girl takes her boyfriend to the Misari Regatta Course. During this time, she is curious as to how deep the lake is, so to find out, she pushes Gyeongu (her boyfriend) into the freezing cold lake... What an odd girl she is.

The Misari Regatta Course is also famous for the live music cafes. It has become a must-visit place for lovers because it is easily accessible by car. You can also enjoy a little picnic for two on the green grass or a leisurely walk around the regatta course. You can also rent a swan boat or a double bicycle. In the evening, savor the moment with a cup of tea and live music at a cafe.
Gwacheon Seoul Land 1

Gwacheon Seoul Land 2
Last attractive scene captured in My Sassy Girl film is Gwacheon Seoul Land. To celebrate the birthday of the sassy girl, the two lovers head for Gwacheon Seoul Land. Unfortunately, a runaway soldier jeopardizes Gyeonu's special plans for a surprise birthday party at the amusement park. However, in this scene the sassy girl says her most memorable line in this movie: "If you really love somebody, then you have to be able to let the person go."Gwacheon Seoul Land is a theme park with various fun facilities and rides located near Seoul. Because of the convenient access by Seoul Subway, it is a popular destination for dates. Nearby attractions include the Botanical Gardens of Seoul Grand Park and the National Museum of Contemporary Art. Furthermore, Seoul Land offers many seasonal festivals like the Tulip Festival in April, the Mum Festival in the fall, Santa Fantasy in December and the Snow Festival during winter. Both young and old are especially fond of snow sledding from December to February.

Well... That's all for now... Will continue the other attraction filming location tomorrow. Till then, take care... Sarangheyo ^-^
