Korea 2017 Day 4: Our Love for Running Man

Even the rain and cold weather couldn’t stop us from pushing through our itinerary for this day, because we were scheduled to visit some Running Man shooting sites (Yehey!).

Korean Manhwa Museum entrance

When I was planning our itinerary, my sister and I made sure to squeeze in some shooting sites from our favorite variety show. One of our favorite episodes was shot at Korean Manhwa Museum, so we first headed to Bucheon.

With the famous dinosaur, Dooly.

Bucheon is one of the cities near Seoul. It’s about 1 1/2 hours travel from the place we’re staying at (Yongsan). If you think about it, it’s pretty far, but that’s okay. All for Running Man. Hahaha

When we reached the Korean Manhwa Museum, the entrance fee was discounted (from 5,000 to 3,500 KRW) because it’s election day today. It was a happy coincidence.

This is Shin from Goong. His Philippine TV name is Gian.

We got to see and took photos of the shooting areas, where Running Men played hide and seek and the theme song game. We participated in one of the activities where you get to draw a manhwa character. I drew Pororo. AIso, I saw copies and characters of my favorite manhwa, Goong (Princess Hours – it became a drama and was dubbed in the Philippines).

Within walking distance from the Korean Manhwa Museum is another Running Man shooting location, Aiin’s World. It’s a small theme park where you will see miniature models of the world’s famous landmarks. You will literally “go around the world” in 30 minutes. Word of advise, it’s better to visit this destination at night. Landmarks look better with colored lights around.

Sagrada Familia, Collessium, Acropolis, Versailles

We headed back to Seoul to visit my college batchmates, Anne, at Ehwa University. It’s one of the top universities in Korea. It’s famous for their ECC building, one of Korea’s modern architecture landmarks. Enjoyed catching-up with Anne while we toured around campus. She even brought us to the cafetria with good kimbap.
