Who else can’t get over that Crash Landing On You finale episode? Me.. me.. If you are anything like me, you are probably still trying to sort through the feelings brought about by that finale. Ri Jeong Hyeok (Hyun Bin) and Yoon Se-ri’s (Son Ye-jin) love story is a special one, and it was made even more special thanks to all the stunning locations the series was filmed at!
Klook, an online booking platform, picks 10 of the locations in which the series was shot.
1. LAKE BRIENZ, SWITZERLAND
Ri Jeong Hyeok’s sad, yet beautiful, piano scene was shot in the southern shores of Lake Brienz, Switzerland. This is located at the small village of Iseltwald and the lake landing where the piano scene was filmed is situated in front of a private residence next to the port of Harbor Iseltwald.
2. FIRST FLIEGER, SWITZERLAND
Ri Jeong Hyeok and Yoon Se-ri’s tearful reunion was filmed against the gorgeous landscapes of Grindelwald – and it made the entire scene 10 times more beautiful! You can experience your own paragliding adventure at First Flieger if you’d like to soar through the same stunning scapes. You can relieve the moment by booking a Paragliding Experience in Interlaken experience with Klook!
3. SIGRISWIL PANORAMA BRIDGE, SWITZERLAND
This attraction is definitely not for the faint of heart. In the series, Ri Jeong Hyeok and Seo Dan visit Sigriswil Panorama Bridge, among other top sites in the city, and a woman (who just happened to be Yoon Se-ri) takes their photograph on the bridge.
4. HALLASAN NATIONAL PARK, SOUTH KOREA
Kicking it off in the location where it all started. In the series, we see Yoon Se-ri crash landing in the North Korea DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) as a result of a paragliding accident. This iconic scene is actually set in the beautiful Hallasan National Park in Jeju Island, South Korea. It’s popular among tourists and tours and hikes are offered for tourists to enjoy!
5. COMMODORE HOTEL, SOUTH KOREA
Did anyone notice that every time our favourite characters visit Pyongyang, they only stay at this one particular hotel? Fortunately you, too, can book a stay here. The fictional Pyongyang hotel where Yoon Se-ri meets Gu Seung Joon (Kim Jung-hyun) coincidentally meet is actually the Commodore Hotel in Busan.
6. LAKE LUNGERN IN OBWALDEN, SWITZERLAND
One of the final scenes in the entire series shows our hero and heroine together at last in their home in Switzerland. You’d think a place this beautiful can’t possibly exist, but it does and you can visit it at Lake lungern, Obwalden.
7. KLEINE SCHNEIDEGG, SWITZERLAND
Unfamiliar? Probably because you’ve skipped through it! The scene featuring Kleine Schneidegg can be found at the very end of episode 2 and shows the two protagonists in Switzerland watching paragliders side by side years before Yoon Se-ri crash landed in North Korea.
8. ULAANBAATAR, MONGOLIA
In the series, Yoon Se-ri and Ri Jeong Hyeok embarked on a journey to Pyongyang by train, which ended up taking 13 to 16 hours. The pivotal scene where the two characters ended up spending the night in a field actually took place in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The Pyongyang Station they arrived at was filmed in the same city as well!
9. HANTAN RIVER SKY BRIDGE IN POCHEON, SOUTH KOREA
On one of their random strolls in South Korea, Ri Jeong Hyeok recalls a memory in Switzerland where he asks a seemingly troubled woman to take his and Seo Dan’s photo. Little did he know – he saved her life! This sweet conversion takes place at the Hantan River Sky Bridge just in Pochen, South Korea overlooking gorgeous landscapes as well.
10. TAEAN, SOUTH KOREA
The iconic North Korean village home to the ever-charming Captain Ri and the comedic village women is located three hours from Seoul and is open to the public! According to blogger, Mee in Korea, the trip to this fictional North Korean village was a long one, but you’ll have access to Ri Jeong Hyeok’s home, the village laundry area, Young Ae’s home and the rest of the village. It’s actually as if you’re walking through the village set!
OMG .. these places just looks amazing!! and definitely these places are all in my bucket list. What about you?
