Another iconic filming location is none other than Gyeongbokgung Palace
. It served as the main filming location for the drama “The Moon Embracing the Sun”, with its breakout star Kim Soo-hyun, and the popular movie “Gwanghae (Masquerade)”, starring Lee Byung-hun. The palace is located in the heart of Seoul and was the main palace of many great Korean kings. You too can pretend to be a part of a period Korean drama by renting a hanbok and exploring the palace. Those who wear a hanbok get free admission to any palace in Seoul. Not sure where to rent one? Our site lists several reputable places to go and rent from. The palace also features a historically accurate reenactment of the Changing of the Guards ceremony twice daily (10 AM and 2 PM).
