First on the list, we have La Centra. The luxurious neighbourhood that the characters of the drama live in. It is actually a real neighbourhood in real life. This high end luxurious neighbourhood is located at Yongin, Gyeonggi Province. Here’s where the majority of the filming took place. La Centra, formally known as Tuscany Hillscondo, is an inspired Italian architecture neighbourhood built as a complex of luxury villas. It is located in the grounds of the Gold Country Club or Gold CC. The Gold CC itself is said to be a golf and art village. The condos sit right next to this golf club’s Korea CC Challenge Course
You may be wondering, can you actually enter the neighbourhood?
Unfortunately, this place isn’t open to the public. Since it is also a part of a golf club. However, you can still try to enquire on their website if you have a strong visit purpose.

Get to Gangnam Station, at then get off at Exit 5. From there it is a 1 minute walk. Pretty near from the station.

Cafes in Gangnam during the weekends are usually full and it’s usually not easy to look for seats. Trust me, I’ve experienced this before. It is said that this cafe has seats even during the weekends. However, this Sapoon Sapoon Cafe, is not the case.
