City Hunter- Themed Travel- Filming Location

Hi guys, as promised... Our next themed travel is City Hunter. 1st of all, sorry for the late post due to my health problem. I have got 3 straight days high fever and now i have non stop coughing... Ya ALLAH... Please let me be healthy again... I am tired of coughing each day and night... My dearies and darlings out there, please pray for me to be healthy so that I can continue writing our Themed Travel each day :)

For those who did not know the synopsis about City Hunter, the synopsis as follows :) 
City Hunter, the drama, is an adaptation of the Japanese manga series of the same name created by Tsukasa Hojo and set in Tokyo in the 1980s. 

Each episode of this fast-paced story is bursting with action scenes skillfully executed by actor Lee Min-ho (the main character) who sheds the prince-like image he bore in the beloved KBS drama ‘Boys Over Flowers.’ Fight scenes in which Lee Min-ho uses everyday objects (a spoon, a radio, a water bottle, etc.) to triumph over his enemies are particularly loved by viewers and created a sensation just after being aired.

The romance between Lee Min-ho and Park Min-young, who was recognized for her acting in the KBS drama‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’with Park Yu-cheon of JYJ, balances out the overall tone of the drama, which otherwise would have been quite dark.

The streets of Buam-dong, ‘Road of Wind’ on Mapodaegyo Bridge, and the Seoul Color Park served as filming locations for the drama’s romance scenes and are still visited by a large number of drama fans.
Road of Wind, Mapo Bridge
Ok, as picture above, that is the 1st location.The Road of Wind is where Yun-seong is tormented by the thought that his mother is not living a happy. An art installation found at the southern end of the Mapo Bridge near Yeouido Park, the ‘Road of Wind’ is famous for its night views. Walk up the twisty turny stairs to enjoy the cool river breeze and the waves of shadow cast by the headlights of passing cars.

Seoul Color Park 2
2nd location is Seoul Color Park. Seoul Color Park is the filming location of the scene where Yun-seong coldheartedly leaves Na-na even though he knows how she feels about him. The art structure is made up of 10 bars of colors (red, blue, gray, etc.) that seem to change color depending on the angle from which they are viewed. Made to mimic the shape of the waves along Hangang River, Seoul Color Park is coupled with benches and is a popular weekend resting spot for those gathered along the river.

Riverview 8th Street
We jump to the next location, Riverview 8th Street. Riverview 8th Street is an observatory situated downstream of Gwangjingyo Bridge, a popular walking course along the Hangang River. The observatory has space for exhibits by famous Korean and non-Korean artists, a performance stage for jazz, rock, and other music performances, and a rest area. The view of the Hangang River seen through the glass floors and walls is spectacular. In City Hunter, Riverview 8th Street appears as the office of Jin-pyo, but was also a filming location of the KBS drama ‘Iris.’
Buam Dong 1

Buam Dong
Our next interesting location is Buam Dong, Seoul. Nestled in Mount Bugaksan, Buam-dong is one of the hidden jewels of Seoul. The area is home to charming cafes and unique restaurants and shops and is a place where nature flourishes. Close to Gyeongbokgung Palace and Insa-dong and connected to Changuimun Gate and the Bugaksanseong Fortress trail, Buam-dong offers a pleasant mix of culture, tradition, and convenience. In the drama, it is the filming location of scenes showing Yun-seong’s mother’s house and neighborhood. Buam-dong has also appeared in the dramas ‘My lovely Sam Soon’ and ‘The First Shop of the Coffee Prince.’

City Hunter scene at The Botanical Garden BCJ (Byeokchoji)
Ok, last but not least... the last location is The Botanical Garden BCJ (Byeokchoji). Opened on September 9, 2005, the Botanical Garden BCJ features Korean-style and Western-style gardens, themed gardens, walking trails, a pond, a greenhouse, an experience center, and a grass plaza. The arboretum has been featured in numerous TV dramas and commercials thanks to its scenic beauty. In ‘City Hunter,’ it is where the characters go for shooting practice. 

Well, have you enjoyed viewing the location? :) You must excitedly dreaming to go there, am I right? So do I... ^_^ Anyway, our next themed travel would be Secret Garden Filming Location...
