Dongmyo Folk Flea Market (Dongmyo Station Exit #2)
If you watched Infinite Challenge Music Festival in 2013, you will definitely be familiar with this place called Dongmyo which Jung Hyung Don and G-Dragon visited in one of the episode and they re-filmed GD’s crooked at this Flea Market. So from Dongmyo Station Exit #2, coming out from from the stairs, make a u-turn you will see this flea market right next to the exit, continue straight and you will see this cubic wall on your right and there will be a small alley after around 50m, that alley is where they re-filmed crooked music video.
Bonus: BIGBANG FXXK IT filming location
It was a bonus when I was looking for one of BIGBANG FXXK IT Music Video filming location and it happen to be just 2 streets away from the hotel, coming out from the hotel, turn left to GS25, turn right, you will pass by this shop below:
It’s name Taeyang Canteen if you can read Korean but this isn’t the filming location, walk further and make a left turn on the next crossroad, walk about 50m and you will see this filming location:
So do remember to explore this place if you’re a die hard VIP like me! xD
