Hello beautiful people!

I hope you are having an amazing day wherever you are in the world!

Today I am writing to you regarding my travels to Gangneung that I took in early April. 


Gangneung is located in the Western part of Korea. The area is known for its beaches and shrines!

But, one of the reasons why I had traveled there was due to Korean pop culture.


Gangneung was a filming spot for the famous drama Goblin

As a fan of the drama, of course, I had to make the trip there. I stood on the very rocks where the two main actors had filmed years ago:

The town preserves this location as it was a special place within the drama. Most tourists like myself visit the area to see this beautiful site. Nearby the beach, there are other Goblin-themed cafes and restaurants for you to indulge in.


I also had the great pleasure of visiting another beach which was 25 minutes away by taxi from the Goblin site. This site was a famous album cover for the boy group BTS. This was in their You Never Walk Alone album that was released back in 2017

This was a beautiful area, I totally want to return again soon!! Make sure to put this town on your to-visit list!! Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day :)
