The Mungyeong-saejae Open Set is part of Mungyeong Saejae Provincial Park in North Gyeongsang. There you can find Mungyeong Natural Ecology Park, the Yetgil Museum, Mungyeong Ecology Maze Park, and Mungyeong-saejae Open Set. To be honest, my friends and I only visited the Mungeyongsaejae Open Set, because of the influence of Korean Wave, of which Korean drama feature so prominently.

As its name suggests, the Mungyeongsaejae Open Set is a historical Korean drama filming location. Over the years, a large number of Korean dramas and movies have been filmed here, including: Bossam: Steal the Fate (2021), Kingdom (2020), The Crowned Clown (2019), Hwarang (2016), The Face Reader (2013), The Moon Embracing the Sun (2012), The Great King Sejong (2008), Taejo Wang Geon (2000), and many more. Therefore, this place offers various historical locations set in the Jeoson era, such as noble and ordinary citizens’ houses, Gwanghamun Gate, government offices, Jeoson and Baekjae period palaces.
