It’s been almost four months since I visited the filming location for the Korean drama “Sad Sonata” with my husband, son and my mother who was on a layover on her way to LAX. The said drama starred Kwon Sang Woo, Kim Hee Sun and Yeon Jung Hoon.
I suddenly remembered this drama because Kwon Sang Woo’s new film with Lee Bo Young is now showing and its title in English is “A Sad Story than Sadness”. Kwon Sang Woo is such a cute guy but I wonder why he seemed to be typecasted in “sad” movies or dramas.
Anyway, the house in the drama “Sad Love Song” (aka Sad Sonata) is located in Shi-do, about a kilometer or two from the “Full House” location. The house has a commanding view of the surrounding sea. It has a circular staircase and a great room with lots of windows and strategically placed lighting.
Framed stills from the drama are all over the place. The furnitures are quite simple but nice. I like the huge kitchen but my favorite part of the house is really the circular stairs.
A visit to the “Sad Love Song” house costs 5,000 won. It’s really just for fans and curious people (like me).
