When I travel to Daejeon, I find new and unknown hidden attractions. Among them, some places frequently appeared as filming locations for movies and dramas.
The missionary village in Ojeong-dong is a hidden attraction in Daejeon that frequently appeared on various filming sites. After missionaries left Korea in the early 1990s, they established a Linton Academy to commemorate the founder of Hannam University, William Alderman Linton. A collaboration between Western architecture and Korean architecture, including red brick with mountain-style roofs reflecting the unique Korean era in the 1950s, and the gathering of main entrances to the front door, offers an exotic building.
The missionary village became more well known as a filming location for movies and dramas. The films "The Last Princess (Princess Deokhye)," "MEMOIR OF A MURDERER," "Once in a Summer" and the drama "Mother" were filmed. If you have a chance, it's good to look for scenes in the movie.
It is impressive that this type of architecture remains in the university, and the chairman and founder are foreigners, making it more notable for their architectural form not easily seen in Korea.
It is a hidden attraction in Daejeon that can be seen differently depending on the season. When you come in the summer, the green, dark leaves stand out. In spring, the wisteria flower blooms here, so it is also a famous place where many snap artists visit wisteria flower attractions in Daejeon to take pictures.
Many people come and go for a walk because the campus in the university is wide. Several buildings seemed to form a complex, and in addition to the exhibition space, there is also a space operated as an educational practice room.
It is a missionary village in Ojeong-dong, Daejeon, a hidden attraction filled with trees on a hot summer day. It is good to visit when looking for a unique street you want to walk because it is well shaded. Even if you travel from other regions, it will be a unique memory. If you have a chance, please visit.
