This will be my last 2014 South Korea trip post. Like finally.

We visited Bongeunsa Temple 봉은사 on the morning of day 13. My main reason for visiting this Buddhist temple is because it was the filming location for my favorite Korean drama, Faith. The bonus? This temple is huge and so beautiful. It has existed since 794 although it first started with a different name (Gyeonseongsa Temple) and location (1km away).

The main gate to Bongeunsa Temple. Faith: It’s also here we saw Choi Young crosses the street to COEX from this temple gate when he first arrived in the modern world.

I completed 2 Korean dramas this past months. Because I was hooked with Joseon Gunman in the early episodes, I went on to watch a Lee Joon Gi drama and decided to go with Two Weeks.

Two Weeks

It’s about a fugitive, Jang Tae San running against time and police to save his daughter with transplant operation in 2 weeks time. The stuffs he have to go through to prevent from getting caught and proof his innocence was super interesting. I can imagined myself doing some of that. Every episode end with countdown to the day of the operation. And in each episode I pray for Jang Tae San not to get caught!

July 28, 2014
Joseon Gunman

Joseon Gunman or Joseon Chongjabi 조선 총잡이 is the kind of drama anyone would love. Masked, double identity hero… You get what I mean? I came into this drama with great interest and it surely did not disappoint so far (I’m at episode 10 as I’m writing this). Because I was so hooked with this […]
