If you’re watching Our Beloved Summer, then you’re probably lusting over (a) Choi Wooshik and Kim Da-mi’s chemistry, (b) the impeccable soundtrack, or (c) Choi Woong (or Ung)’s dreamy studio. We can’t blame you — they’re all, equally, swoon-worthy. But today, we’re zooming into the humble abode of our endearing male lead.
From wide glass windows that let the sun gently peek indoors, to hanging plants adorning the space, to brick walls serving as a backdrop to Go-Oh’s drawings, Choi Woong’s artist cave definitely sets up the romantic vibe of the show. So even after two hours a week of glances into his space, we just can’t get enough! We just wish we were Kook Yeon-soo, so we could also ask to stay over (IYKYK).
Since we’re not living in K-drama Land, the next best thing is ogling photos of Choi Woong’s studio. Alas, we’re ecstatic to announce that we’ve found more real-life photos of the filming location.
Our Beloved Summer Choi Woong’s studio in real life
Most of Woong’s studio, including the garden and rooftop, is actually a cafe in South Korea! Haenggung Party opened in 2017 at Jang-an Park, Suwon. Its rooftop provides a panoramic view of the Suwon Hwaesong Fortress.
Unfortunately, Haenggung Party closed in February 2021 due to the COVID-19 protocols. But thankfully, its Instagram page is still up. You know what that means — more angles of the studio!
Take a look at some of their Instagram photos below. We’re sure most of them will be familiar to Our Beloved Summer fans!
We also found a Naver page by Oh that generously shared more photos of the place. See below.
Aren’t you just in love with every corner of Choi Woong’s studio? We can only hope that Haenggung Party reopens. But until then, we’re replaying Our Beloved Summer to our hearts’ content.
