Here are the 7 worth-visiting Extraordinary Attorney Woo filming locations from Seoul, Gyeonggido, and Gyeongsangnamdo.
Extraordinary Attorney Woo just had its finale last August 18 and for me the ending was good. It was whale ended! If you haven’t watched it what are you waiting for? You should try watching it because it’s something different from the Korean drama that you have seen. It is beautifully crafted and Park Eun-bin (Woo Young Woo) nailed her character in this drama.
Also, this drama approached the sensitive topic of autism. Just like Woo Young Woo said, “Though my life is unusual and peculiar, it’s valuable and beautiful“. They maybe have a different world, different communication levels, skills, abilities, and experiences but at the end of the day, we are still the same human. I can say that this drama is such a masterpiece.
Anyway, let’s travel through my post and let’s find out the 7 worth-visiting Extraordinary Woo filming locations from Seoul, Gyeonggido and Gyeongsamnamdo. If you are looking for the filming locations in Jeju, you can read the article below.
7 Worth-Visiting Extraordinary Attorney Woo Filming Locations
Kajaguruma [카자구루마] is the kimbap shop of Woo Young Woo’s father. It is located in the vicinity of Suwon Hwaseong Fortress. In reality, this shop does not sell kimbap but a different menu. The shop is open from 11:30 am to 11:00 pm. Also, shops these days like restaurants have their break time from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
I went here very early to avoid the crowd since it became famous after being featured in the drama. Visitors said they waited from 30 minutes to 1 hour just to eat at Kajaguruma. Aside from that, people who want to take photos at the shop also have a long line. So if you want to take good shots, visit before 10:00 am.
Also, the block near Kajaguruma was the place where Woo Young Woo and Lee Jun-ho kissed.
