South Korea is a travel destination that has a lot to offer, from the food to culture and the beauty industry. As the land of K-pop and Korean dramas, it also boasts some of the most gorgeous sceneries, further fuelling our wanderlust.
International travel is still off the cards, but we can start planning our next destination. If you're looking to recreate some of your favourite scenes from notable Korean dramas, it's the perfect time to go on a "K-drama pilgrimage" and see these places for yourself.
From gorgeous beaches, to picturesque parks and breathtaking school campuses, there's plenty for everyone to choose from regardless if you're already abroad the "K-drama mania" or just on the lookout for new destinations. As a true Korean drama fan and having been to some of these places myself, I break down some of the must-visit Korean drama filming locations for you to put on your travel list––and hopefully visit soon.

Deoksugung Palace Stonewall Walkway is looks like a seemingly simple spot but it's more than meets the eye. It makes a frequent appearance in a lot of Korean dramas due to the picturesque pedestrian footpath located near Deoksugung Palace.
The walkway is also a perfect example of blending urban space, a historical motif and nature all in one. While it's a popular spot for a romantic walk, we recommend visiting during autumn to witness the stunning autumn foliage around the area.
