As seen in drama, While You Were Sleeping, ‘Hangang Middle School’ Bus Stop is where really Jung Jae Chan (Lee Jong Suk) and Nam Hong Joo (Bae Suzy) met in flesh for the first time. This is also the place often seen in most of the episodes since both protagonists ride the bus stopping on this location to go to work.
It is said that before the pre-produced drama, the bus stop wasn’t really there and was only built for the sole purpose of becoming a filming location for WYWS. So, in reality it was a fake bus stop. I tried searching this location through Google and Naver maps and didn’t really have any fruitful results. Gladly, I stumbled upon something interesting that you could compare on.
The before and after:
So many memorable scenes with Jae Chan and Hong Joo had been shot on this location so make sure to add this to your to-go list!

There are many ways to go to this place by Seoul Metro, but this is one suggestion according to Google maps (1h 36min):
– Ride the train from Seoul Station to Namchuncheon Station and do a 13 minute walk (850m) to ‘Hangang Middle School’ Bus Stop.
I’m not really sure about the directions but there are always helpful GPS navigated maps app in google play (if you’re using android) that you can use when you are already at the area so you don’t get lost that much (we used it a lot during our stay and it was really a great help).
