Record Of Youth Filming Locations That I Have Visited

September 17, 2020



Record of Youth is one of the KDramas that I am currently watching. I have been waiting for this drama because it's the last drama of Park Bogum as he enlisted in the military last August. I am also excited for this drama because it will not only talk about love, but also about life in general.

While watching the drama, there were familiar places that's why I loved it even more. In today's blog, I'll share to you the filming locations of Record of Youth that I have visited.

Starfield Library


Starfield Library is located at the COEX Mall. It is a public library that consists of more than 50,000 books and magazines. Around 600 foreign and local magazines are available for reading. For me, the attractive part in this place is the 13 meter tall bookshelf with a very beautiful painting.


Here's how you can go to Starfield Library:

Address: 513 Yeongdong-daero, Gangnam-gu, Seoul

1. Take the Line 2 (Green) subway to Samseong Station
2. Use Exit 6 and just follow the signs to Starfield Coex Mall
3. The library is located in the main atrium.

Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP)


Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) is an events place. A lot of  international events, exhibits, and even fashion shows are held at this place. In an episode of Record of Youth, it is where the characters of Park Bo Gum and Park So Dam first met. I was screaming when I watched this episode because I literally walked at that place too.

I visited DDP last 2019 during the ACH Invitation Program. Together with PH representatives and other ASEAN participants, we attended the Public Diplomacy Week.

How to go to DDP:

Address: 281, Eulji-ro, Jung-gu, Seoul

1. You can use Line 2, 4, 5 subway to Dongdaemun History and Culture Park Station and use Exit 1.
2. Another option, you can use Line 1 subway to Dongdaemun Station and use Exit 7. Then you'll walk to DDP.

Hongdae (Hongik University Street)


Hongdae is one of my favorite places in South Korea. To be very honest, it is the place where we always stay. Main reason? It has an easy access to the subway (especially from the airport). Also, Hongdae is so alive every time I visit it.

On my next blog, I'll be writing a more detailed blog why I love Hongdae and why you should visit it too.

How to go to Hongdae:

Address: 20, Hongik-ro, Mapo-gu, Seoul
1. Take the subway Line 2 (Green) and stop at Hongik University Station and use Exit 9.

Record of Youth is still an on-going drama (as of writing) and who knows? I might be familiar with other filming locations! I will be updating this blog if I found some familiar filming locations.
