The Five: Kim Sun Ah’s possible next movie project

Kyaaa!!! I’m so happy with the news about Kim Sun Ah‘s possible next film! I won’t go into details since I actually haven’t read much about it because I’ve been busy with school lately. You can read details of the possible movie HERE.


But when I found out it will be based on a webtoon, The Five, I immediately searched for it and read it. Unfortunately the webtoon is not for free, so I only get to read the prologue/teaser and chapter 1~2. I would love to read the rest and I don’t mind paying 500won/5 chapters but I don’t know how (and don’t want to bother knowing how).

I loved chapters 1~2 and I’m so excited to see my dear Kim Sun Ah on it (though her character doesn’t appear yet on chapters 1~2). I’ve always wanted to see her in a suspense thriller and I still can’t get over the fact that she didn’t get to finish doing Thursday’s Child (Seven Days) with Kim Hyang Ki. :p

I’m sooo looking forward to this movie. I really hope this project will push through. And I would love to see it on the big screen, if ever! 🙂

I also want to read the rest of the webtoon chapters! 엉엉엉!


[촬영장소] City Hall – Porridge Restaurant 본죽 당산점

Any City Hallers would know this porridge restaurant that has been on a number of City Hall episodes. How can one forget how Jo Guk tried hard not to cry while eating his porridge and looking at Mayor Shin Mi Rae’s photo?

What I love most in this shop is that they preserved the props used in the drama  – the tarpaulin with Shin Mi Rae’s photo even if it has been 3 years already. They also proudly display some more photos from the drama inside and outside the shop. There’s even a nice signage that reads “City Hall Filming Location” outside. Whereas some of Kim Sun Ah’s filming drama locations have either renovated their place already or have taken down photos from her dramas.

Take line 9. Get off 당산 station. Take exit 8. Walk straight ahead. You’ll find the porridge shop on your left.

[촬영장소] City Hall – National Assembly of South Korea

Alright, there were actually no scenes that was ‘really’ filmed inside (or even outside) the National Assembly, I believe. Just a POV of Jo Guk from his car and some studio-filmed scenes that was supposed to be the inside of the National Assembly (unless they really filmed it inside?).

Nonetheless, for Kim Sun Ah / City Hall fans (fondly called Cityhallers), the National Assembly = Congressman Jo Guk!

Take Line 9 and get off 국회의사당 station Exit 1.

[촬영장소] I Do I Do – 수상한 포차 목동점 Choong Baek’s Restaurant

The place where EVERYTHING started in I Do I Do – Choong Baek’s 포차.

I went there twice. First to just look at the place. Next time I went there to join a 모임 with some Korean fans of Kim Sun Ah. The food and drinks were good! 🙂


서울시 양천구 신정동 902-1 산정빌딩 4층 403호.



Take subway line 5. Get off 목동역 exit 1. Walk straight for a few meters. It’s on your left, right next to a 노래방.

[촬영장소] When It’s At Night – National Museum

Whenever Korea’s National Museum is mentioned, When It’s At Night is always the first thing that comes to my mind. Why not? If more than half of My Name Is Kim Sam Soon was filmed on Sam Shik’s restaurant, more than half of When It’s At Night was filmed at the National Museum.

The M cafe!

After the drama finished, there used to be a tarpaulin of a photo of Kim Sun Ah and Lee Dong Gun in this cafe. But it’s gone now. Instead a photo of a different was attached to one corner (and I didn’t bother checking which drama it was).

1. I wasn’t able to go around (especially the park areas because we don’t have much time (on my two visits to the National Museum).


2. I haven’t seen When It’s At Night for a veeeery long time, so I can’t remember where exactly most of the scenes were and what National Treasures appeared on the drama.

But they are all there! Inside and around the National Museum. 🙂


Get off 이촌역 and basically it’s just around the corner. You can see it right away. You won’t miss it.

The M cafe is on the second floor.

[촬영장소] Scent of A Woman – Line Tour

We were on our way to King Kong Entertainment, Kim Sun Ah’s agency, from Sam Shik’s Restaurant near 삼성 역. I kinda saw the name POSCO from afar, but I’m not sure if it’s the same POSCO as the one used as Line Tour in Scent Of A Woman. Luckily we have to pass by that building and I was able to confirm that it was indeed Line Tour.

Take Line 2. Get off 역삼역 exit 3 and walk a few meters. It’ll be on your left.

However, we actually just walked from Sam Shik’s restaurant to reach this place. Quite a long walk though if you are not used to walking.
