Some of the most essential elements of a K-Drama are world-building and set design. It creates immersion and allows a fictional universe to feel natural and relatable. If you’ve been a K-Drama fan for any amount of time now, you could not have missed the gorgeous apartments and houses that are featured in almost every K-Drama out there. Whether it be a cozy space or a grand mansion, K-Dramas know how to make them look pretty.
Here are five houses/apartments in K-Dramas (in no order of ranking) that we’d love to stay in!
1. Yu NaBi’s Apartment In “Nevertheless,”
Yu NaBi, played by Han SoHee, is a 4th-year art student in the Department of Sculpture. Even if you didn’t know that before, just looking at her apartment makes it amply clear. It screams “artistic” and cozy even though it is relatively simple. The studio apartment doesn’t allow for a clear division between the living area and the bedroom, but the elevated platform creates a great demarcation. This is the dream apartment of any university student.

Choi Ung, played by Choi WooShik, is a famed artist and illustrator in “Our Beloved Summer”. His house is spacious, boasts a mid-century modern style, and is filled with earthy tones like browns and greens. It is warm, welcoming, calm and reflects Ung’s artistic mindset. It would be such a joy to spend time with friends and family here.

3. Heo JoonJae’s House In “The Legend Of The Blue Sea”
Heo JoonJae, played by Lee MinHo, boasts one of the most enviable houses in K-Drama land. This bachelor pad shows wealth and affluence but also has a relaxed vibe to it that can instantly make people feel at home. The individual rooms are even comfier, with little details like bookshelves tucked near the ceiling.
4. Goblin & Grim Reaper’s House In “Goblin”
Goblin (Gong Yoo) and Grim Reaper’s (Lee DongWook) majestic mansion is sheer Victorian goodness. From the picturesque plants to the suspended candle display, arched windows, and high ceilings, everything about this house is straight out of a daydream. Besides, EunTak’s (Kim GoEun) comparatively more youthful and cozy room is absolutely charming too!
5. Park GaeIn’s House In “Personal Taste”
Finally, we could not possibly conclude this list without the iconic Sanggojae house from Lee MinHo and Son YeJin’s “Personal Taste”. This modernized hanok is like a time capsule, blending traditional and modern styles seamlessly to create the most lovely space we’ve ever seen in a K-Drama. It is colorful and the conversation pit has our hearts.
