Travel tips*: The locations where Korean TV dramas
are shot are becoming popular tourist destinations.  For
example, the little port town where Joon-suh and
Eun-suh grew up during childhood and the ranch that
they stayed at as grown-ups are attracting many
Taiwanese tourists.  An interesting phenomenon is that if
a certain drama is more popular in one Asian country
than in another Asian country, that drama site will be
flooded with tourists from that country where the drama
is most popular.  For example, if a drama is more
popular in Indonesia than in Taiwan, the drama site will
be flooded with Indonesian tourists.  If the drama is
more popular in Taiwan, then the drama site will be
flooded with Taiwanese tourists.  Along the same lines,
Japanese tourists are flocking to a place called "Shiri
Hill" in Jeju Island after the success of "Shiri" (a Korean
movie) in Japan.
