Chooksung Cathedral in Gijang

Chooksung Cathedral in Gijang

haps Korea Magazine

Located in Gijang amongst the blue seas and coastal rocks, this building stands out amongst the coastal fishing village nearby.

Though it is actually not a religious facility, this cathedral was used as the filming set for the popular Korean drama ‘Dream’ in 2009 which starred Ju Jin-mo, Kim Bum and Son Dam-bi.

It has become a popular photography site for couples and weddings due to its unique location though the structure has raised controversy over the years as being ‘illegal’ by locals.

To get there: Take bus 1003 to Gijang Simya by the Gijang Catholic Church and transfer to local bus 6 to the end of the line. It may be easier to take a taxi and say “죽성성당드림세트장”
