Goblin (도깨비) Filming Locations in Seoul - Whitebirch Story - A Traditional Korean Tea House

Whitebirch Story - Traditional Korean Tea House

From the moment you step inside Whitebirch Story you feel like as if you've entered a fairytale, there's so many cute shops and cafes in Samcheong-dong tucked away down the little alleyways of the Bukchon Village you're missing out by just staying on the main roads. Admittedly this wasn't a random discovery this was actually a place I found thanks to one of my favourite Kdramas Goblin (도깨비) which in fact lead me to visit some other really beautiful places around Korea, this is just one of them and I'll be posting about the rest very soon!

I've said this before but I'll say it again, a visit to a tea house is a must when you're in Korea there's just something so quaint and kitsch about them that you can't find anywhere else in the world. It was a very cold day when we visited so I was desperately in need of something to warm me up and I find tea houses in Korea are always so warm, relaxed and welcoming, the perfect place to hide from the cold winter weather.

There was a wide selection of different teas, coffee and other drinks on the menu there but as it was such a cold day I decided to go for a simple hot ginger tea which came with a little butter biscuit as service. I expected the tea to arrive as just a tea bag in some hot water but there were freshly cut pieces of ginger being steeped in my cup which I actually nibbled on later to give me an extra immunity boost. Ginger is just the best thing to eat in the winter not only does it give you that warm feeling but it's really good for you and helps prevent you getting sick.

Goblin was our reason for coming to this cafe but the relaxed ambience and the kitschy decor was why we stayed. We were also lucky enough to sit in the exact same place as Eun-tak and Sunny did in the drama so it felt like I was living out my KDrama dreams. I've always loved acting but my confidence and anxiety always held me back from going any further with it but little moments like this help me live out those dreams I had of becoming an actor.

Regardless of if you're a Goblin fan or not I would definitely recommend a visit to Whitebirch Story it's such a cosy place and everywhere you look there's something cute to make you smile, even the burn patches on the wall are cute, it definitely ranks high on one of the best cafes I've visited in Seoul and I'll definitely be back there on my next trip.
