Address: 117 Namja-ro, Sangdang-gu, Cheongju-si, Chuncheongbuk-do (충청북도 청주시 상당구 남사로 117)
This is the scene where Song Hyekyo's character, Moon Dongeun, and Joo Yeojung, played by Lee Dohyun, play the game Go in the park. It was meant to portray Tapgol Park in Seoul (although actually filmed in Cheongju), so there are many old men playing Go or other Korean games in the park.
2. Mung Hit Cafe (멍때림)
Address: 1970-34, Haeannam-ro, Hwado-myeon, Ganghwa-gun, Incheon (인천 강화군 화도면 해안남로 1970-34)
One of the most impressive supporting roles is the drug-addicted artist Lee Sara! Her luxurious mansion shown in the drama was actually filmed at the scenic cafe named 'Mung Hit' or 멍때림 on Ganghwa Island in Incheon. The cafe is very popular and many people stop by when they visit Ganghwa Island! If you're interested to read more about Ganghwa Island, check out this blog.

Address: 688 Bukhangangbyeon-ro, Namsan-myeon, Chuncheon-si, Gangwon (강원 춘천시 남산면 북한강변길 688)
This short scene of the rich kids enjoying a ski trip was filmed at Elysian Gangchon Ski Resort in Gangwon-do. On the other hand, it was heartbreaking to see Dongeun have to use the cold snow as the only way to treat her burns.
