We’ve been seeing a number of travels on our social media feeds in the past weeks. It seems as though folks have been busy satiating their wanderlust, what with two years of restricted leisurely travel due to COVID-19. Among the happy posts we’ve been seeing are travels to South Korea. In the last two years, K-Fever has seen a global recognition. Glued to Netflix, Viu and other streaming platforms, people enjoyed viewing K-Dramas. K-Pop has also seen unprecedented appreciation to date, thanks to the achievements of groups like BTS and BLACKPINK. Travel to South Korea is thus a pilgrimage to K-Drama locations and everything the world has been curious about from their introduction to the country via the small screen.
So much of the K-Fever appeal lies in its aesthetics. K-Dramas are replete with tasteful penthouses, bucolic sceneries, meticulously designed bachelor and bachelorette pads. For those who are planning on traveling to South Korea, wouldn’t you want your stay to be as picturesque as those frames many a K-Drama are made of?
Here’s your chance to stay in a beautiful location… while you star in your own travelogue! We’ve got you covered. Here is Metro.Style’s compilation of ten stylish S. Korea stays that you should consider booking for your next visit to South Korea!

Linden Studio (Seoul/Mapo-gu)
Linden Studio is perfect for the traveller who wants a cozy getaway while still being immersed in the city life of Seoul.
The design of this stay is inspired by Berlin architecture, and some of its amenities include a small attic where you can take a rest and relax and a large window where you can appreciate Mangwon-dong’s residential area.
The main feature of this stay is the small nook at the center with curved bookshelves (filled with books!) enclosing a reading area for the guest to immerse themselves into their favorite books, or simply just lounge around and rest. Aside from this, THE CHAE: LIBRARY has a spa and a fireplace where you can further dive into the ultimate relaxation experience.
It is located right beside Hanyangdoseong, or the Seoul City Wall, which you can see from a large window in the bedroom and where you can also enjoy a serene walk along, since there are less cars in this area.
The grey brick walls and lined wooden walls add character to this stay, and it makes you feel as if you are entering a forest filled with trees. Other architecture elements such as the staircase in the living room are very notable as well.
he place is surrounded by exotic gardens, and has amenities such as an indoor heated pool and jacuzzi, so guests can enjoy their time alone (or enjoy their time with loved ones alone) and focus on their relaxation without having anyone to disturb them.
The stay has a good mix of traditional and modern elements to it, with stone being the common material for the exterior and wood for the interior. Other amenities include a garden and a spa where you can sit back, relax, and take in Jeju’s scenery.
The stay is designed to give guests the complete hanok (traditional Korean house) experience, but with a modern twist, as the exterior resembles that of a hanok but the furniture is more modern to accommodate more of a cozy feel for the guests.
Compared to Mouryub, Stayseesaw’s approach to a hanok is more contemporary and is designed to be a more modern-styled hanok; while the exterior resembles a typical hanok, the interior makes use of modern furniture and materials.
The owner of this stay wished to offer a space for guests to be able to find balance in their lives like a seesaw, so the design and color palette are very simple and minimalist for the guests to really focus on themselves and their peace of mind.
The whites and browns of the interior also make this stay look extra cozy. Some amenities of Yeo-Ne include a beam projector in the living room for watching movies, an indoor bathtub for a relaxing bath, and a garden for enjoying nature and basking in the warmth of the sun.
