Bangtan Tour I Review

As the BTS fever swept the world, there's been a lot of interest towards the specific locations in which music videos were filmed and album covers were shot. 

We're going to be visiting Spring Day's music video filming location, BTS members' favorite restaurant when they were trainees, and more!   


1. Hwarangdae Station

Hwarangdae Station is located on the forrest trails of the Gyeongchun Line. It used to be a train connection point between Seoul and Busan. It's now a deserted station as it's no longer in use. 

Instead, it's now a sort of museum where old trains are displayed. Since BTS's RM went on vacation there and tweeted a picture, it's been an integral part of the Bangtan Tour! 

BTS Official Twitter

From that photo that RM took, footprints were drawn on so that people know exactly where he stood. Take a picture just like RM's!


2. Seoul Forrest

Seoul Forrest is the biggest park in Seoul, located smack in the middle of the city. If New York has Central Park, Seoul has Seoul Forrest. 

The reason that Seoul Forrest is a Bangtan attraction is because it's SUGA's album photo shoot location for "Love Yourself."  

This is the Forrest Playground, where SUGA took the photo you see above. A lot of fans like to scope out this place so they can take the exact same picture.  

Take the same photo as SUGA!   


3. Yoojeong Sikdang

This spot is a place that BTS liked to frequent since before they were famous. Apparently, they were here for almost every meal when they were trainees. 

It's a place that has fond memories for BTS members, and they still come here every now and then!    

It looks like a normal restaurant, but it's covered in BTS stickers and posters inside. You can tell immediately that it's a BTS shrine, lol.

If you look at one of the tables, there are stickers of the members stuck onto the sides. These mark the member's designated seats.

Yoojeong Sikdang's best menu is the black pork rice pot. It's 9,000 KRW per serving and it comes with side dishes and soy paste soup per table.

The black pork is alright, but the soy paste soup is super delicious!  

Although we weren't able to run into any BTS members, it was still cool to be in the very space where they spent to so much of their time in the past!  

Hope you guys have better luck and run into one of the members when you're here!


4. Iryeong Station


Iryeong Station is located in Gyeonggi Yangju. The station has been closed since 2004. This is where V is standing in the first scene of the Spring Day music video!  


Spring Day is a song that came out on 2017 Feb 13th, and still remains on the top of the Korean music charts. 

I'm pretty sure all ARMYs remember the scene that V putting his ear against the train tracks to listen to the sound of spring coming. 

Doesn't have to be winter to capture beautiful scenery. Like a scene in a movie, Iryeong has its own flavor of vintage. 

If you're a fan of BTS member V, then you have to check this place out!  

A lot of fans like to bring a photo of V or a BT21 plushie to take a proof shot that they were here!

It's a popular spot for ARMY members, but it's also a little far from Seoul so it's difficult to get to. Luckily, Creatrip has a Bangtan Day Trip so that you can get here easily!


5. Laundry Pizza

The last location on this list is Laundry Pizza, a pizza place located on Gangnam Station. It's an optional stop, but I recommend that you check it out! 

Not only is it where BTS took their album photos, but it also has amazing pizza!

Decorated like an American Laundromat, the place was made for taking pictures.   

There are traces of BTS presence all around the restaurant!  

It's fun to spot the areas that was broadcasted!  

The potato pizza and the mac and cheese pizza are the most popular menus! Make sure you try these two out! 

The potato pizza has condensed milk in it, so it's sweet, salty, and just explodes with flavor. The mac and cheese pizza has bits of bacon in it that makes it super addicting! 

Even if you're not a BTS fan, the restaurant itself is probably the top 3 best pizza joints I've been to!
