It is quite obvious that Mytor and I are You’re Beautiful addicts ne? And thanks to my fangirl friend Pao who is currently enjoying the freezing weather in Seoul, I was able to visit the place where most scenes in Episode 6 of YB were shot — Myeong Dong, Seoul.
Episode 6 is where the faux date between Mi Nam and Shin Woo happened. Mi Nam mentioned while talking to Shin Woo that she was in Myeong Dong and so adorable Shin Woo decided to give her a tour of the place, with him watching her back without her knowing it (I’m turning to a puddle of goo!!!). He told her the best noodle place, where to eat the ice cream that she was craving for (it’s Baskin and Robbins) and where to shop for her umm, men’s clothes.
Luckily, Pao (who is a big, BIG fan of Jang Geun Suk) knows where those places were so we took pictures of ourselves just standing where Mi Nam, Shin Woo and Tae Kyung stood. Crazy right? But it was fun. At least we can say that we’ve been to those places. So on with the pictures (pardon the smiley faces please…)
Picture taken in front of the Myeong Dong Church where Mi Nam was waiting for Tae Kyung to fetch her. Notice the green lamp post and the tree which is almost bare during the time we took our pictures.
Mi Nam wanted ice cream after eating Kalguksoo (noodles) so Shin Woo directed her to the ice cream shop. This is the small side street where she walked while talking to Shinwoo. Landmark is the DVD sign behind Mi Nam and me (my pic was taken from a different angle…)
Awww…the place of rejection where both Mi Nam and Shin Woo stood after their faux date. Shin Woo was going to reveal himself to Mi Nam but Tae Kyung called her so she went running away. The tree will forever be a witness to that scene (and Shin Woo’s heartache.)
So there, hope you enjoyed my little fangirl account. To those who are planning to go to Myeong Dong, the place is very accessible through their interconnecting subway. A special thanks to Pao because without her, it would not be easy for me to find these places.
