Last Saturday (November 15) though I visited the filming location of “Full House” in Si-do (Shi Island), which is just at the back of Incheon International Airport. My mother had a 10-hour stopover in Korea on her way to Los Angeles. It is such a short-time to bring her to Seoul or away from the island where the airport is located.
To go to Si-do, we took the ferry at Sam-mok port. The round-trip fare for the car is 20,000 won (US$13.50 – passengers need not pay extra). We landed at Shin-do’s port 15 minutes later. Si-do is connected to Shin-do by a bridge. I was chatting with my mother that I didn’t notice how long it took for us to reach the famous house.
The “set-jang” or the filming location of “Full House” is located by the beach. The weather was cold and cloudy that day. When we arrived at the location, there were only two other cars that were parked outside. A few people were strolling at the beach.
The ticket to get inside the house costs 5,000 won (US$3.37) per person! I bought two tickets for me and my mother. My husband wasn’t interested to get inside and he preferred to walk around. The ticket seller gave me two posters for free!
Here are the pictures of the place. I thought that it would be nice to go there in the summer season. I love the chandeliers in the house, especially the one in the master’s bedroom (find the rightmost picture on the fourth row). The island itself would be a nice place to visit for a walk on the beach, picnic or bathing. It is quite rural in that there are a few commercial establishments and no high-rise apartment building although attractive pension houses abound.
