Seopjikoji is well known as the filming location for the TV mini-series "All In." 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. There is a separate admission fee to visit the house.
'All In House' opens on Jeju Island
In commemoration of the popular drama in 2003 All In starring Lee Byung-hun and Song Hye-kyo, a ceremony was held at the opening of the All In House at Jeju Island's Seopjikoji. 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.
The ground floor displays include items from the drama, "making of the film", the film on the Grand Canyon set, and also the music box which served as the link between In-ha (Lee Byung-hun) and Soo-yeon's (Song Hye-kyo) love. The B1 level has a small cinema section showing an All In trailer using computer graphics, and a souvenir shop, cafe, and outdoor rest area.
Seopjikoji is located at the end of the eastern shore of Jeju-do Island. "Seopji" is the old name for the area, and "Koji" is Jeju dialect meaning a sudden bump on land.
Green fields without a single tree spread beyond the cliff to where a rock called "seondol" protrudes. Also there are stonewalls along the road to block the wind on the way to the lighthouse at the end of Seopjikoji. Within the stonewalls, you may find the most brilliant rapeseed flower fields every April.
Going up the metal steps of the lighthouse, you can view the whole seashore at a glance. On Koji hill, there stands a stone Bongsudae (4 m high, 9 m long and wide) that retains its original form.
