My Mister Filming Locations

Hoogye-dong, the neighborhood in which the three ahjussi brothers are born and raised, is a fictional place created by screenwriter Park Hae Young exclusively for My Ahjussi. Although ‘it is said to exist at the “mouth” of Seoul’, some of the key locations in the drama series, such as Jung Hee’s bar and Sang Hoon and Ki Hoon’s cleaning company, are actually located outside Seoul city.

Note on this post’s organization from Marion & Mich KDL: We’ve used the South Korean administrative system to put the locations in order. So you’ll first have the city. For each city we divided everything by district (the -gu‘s in Korean) and then subdivided the districts by neighborhoods (the -dong‘s in Korean). For example, Jung Hee’s bar is located in Incheon’s Gong District and within that district, in the neighborhood Manseok. You should find this information in the “More info” link to each location.

[This post will be updated with new locations. Last update: Aug 24]
