This open film set is located in Jorye-dong, Suncheon. It consists of three villages each representing a different era from the 1950s to the 1970s.
A great place to revisit the past, as I mentioned earlier, is the Suncheon Open Film Location. Located in the neighborhood of Jorye-dong, the set was created for movies and dramas in 2006 and is now a popular attraction.
The village is split between three eras: 1950’s Suncheon, 1960’s Seoul Bongcheong-dong village, and 1970’s Seoul suburb.
The whole course probably takes an hour or two of meandering, and it’s fun to see my generation running around taking photos in costume. It has to be a little surreal for the older generation who actually lived these sets to see their kids and grandkids reliving their own past! I think my favorite was seeing all the halmonis and harabeogis dancing to some golden Korean oldies in the set’s discotheque.
