Goblin Shooting Locations

1. BBQ Olive Chicken

This is the place where Ji Eun Tak work as a part time waitress. It is owned by Sunny, the beautiful lady who caught the heart of the grim reaper.


To go there, you have to take Seoul Subway Line 3 (Orange Line) and get off at Daecheong Station, Exit 4. Walk for about 500m and turn left when you see the aisle with many restaurants. If you’re not good with directions, just type this (서울 강남구 일원로9길 8 1층) in your map and follow the GPS. (Source)

The second shop is located in 81 Cheonggyecheon-ro, Gwacheol-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul.

*Duksung Women’s University and Choong Ang High School doesn’t allow visitors to come in anymore because it disturbs the classes and for security purposes.

  1. Hi!! Do you know if the Unhyeongung Yanggwan still closed to the visitors?? Thank you!

  2. hi! do you know where is the ski place they had filmed in the drama?

  3. thanks for sharing with us. it must be in my list to visit for next trip to seoul..

  4. I’m not sure if this case only happened to me but I think entering the university is now forbidden. Last December 2017, we went there on a Sunday, and we were only able to enter the Unhyeongung Palace. Other passage way going to the Goblin’s house are closed so we can’t take a picture with the house upclose.

  5. Hi Karla. Annyeong!

    Can you give me instructions on how to get to Sunny’s 2nd restaurant? Kamsahamnida in advance.

  6. hai ,
    I would like to ask, when you went to Unhyeongung Yanggwan at Deoksung Women’s University at that time are you allowed to go inside by campus security there?
    because when I went there last April I was not allowed into his campus by security

    1. Yes. It was allowed before. I went there before it became famous to the other fans.

      1. I also went there last December 2017and we were only able to enter the Unhyeongung Palace. Other passage way going to the Goblin’s house are closed so we can’t take a picture with the house upclose. So sad.

          I went there last winter 2017, they really do not allow tourists to enter anymore, but if you can speak a little bit of korean, just charm your way in and tell the Ajussi that you are a ‘Filipino’ fanatic of the drama.
