Korean Movie "All In" Shooting Place (Seopjikoji Hill)

Mt. Seopjikoji 
Seopikoji is on the east coast of Jeju Island. In the Jeju dialect, "Seopji" means a narrow piece of land and "Koji" means a promontory. During the Joseon period, a signal fire beacon was located on "Seopjikoji". The shoreline is covered with volcanic red rocks and pebbles, and many of the rocks are of strange, spectacular shapes. One large rock known as "Seondolbawi" looks like candlestick. According to the local folklore, it was created when the son of the sea god turned to stone because his love for a nymph was not returned.

Seopjikoji Hill is well known as the filming location for the TV mini-series “All In.” Did you guys watch this series? I watched this before and it's really very nice and recommended series, which stars Lee Byung-hun and Song Hye-kyo.

Here is the short video clip of this series with the soundtrack:

It is a vast hill where you can take a walk against a beautiful background of the ocean view. Midway through the walk, you will find the house of “All In,” which is an intriguing attraction.

The All In House opened its doors on June 3, 2005, and is Korea's first drama memorial hall. Jeju Island’s Southern district Seopjikoji was the main filming location of All In, but suffered severe damages during a hurricane and the site was cleared. The new All In House is a collaboration between the All In production company and SBS Production. The reconstructed church and convent sets will be exhibited to the visitors. The All In house took 18 months to build, with two underground floors (B1 and B2) and a ground-level floor, on 270 pyeong of land. The reconstruction cost more than three billion Korean won.

Found a video that promotes Seopjikoji Hill:
