Fans of the recently ended series "Goblin" still got hang-ups of the drama. In fact, some of them have expressed their desire to visit the places where Kim Go Eun and Gong Yoo filmed some of their scenes.

"Goblin" fans fell in love with how the drama displayed the beauty of Canada, particularly Quebec. The city of Quebec is the largest province in Canada where picturesque architectures are built.

In the tvN drama, Kim Go Eun and Gong Yoo's characters often visit Quebec by passing through a red door. Among the tourist spots shown in "Goblin" were the popular Fairmont Le Château Frontenac Hotel and the Parc du Bastion-de-la-Reine.

According to Allkpop, Quebec has experienced an influx of tourists after the Korean drama featured the city. JTBC's "Abnormal Summit" even commended "Goblin" for its representation of the Canadian city.

Guillaume Party of "Abnormal Summit" said more and more Korean tourists have been visiting Quebec to check the places where Kim Go Eun and Gong Yoo filmed for "Goblin."

On top of that, fans are also curious about the Canadian restaurant where the two main characters dined. Contrary to everyone's expectations, the restaurant cannot be found in Quebec.

To begin with, the supposed Canadian restaurant was rather café in Paju, South Korea. Koreaboo cited the place is called Zino or Chocolatier Zino, a western-inspired café in the North-West part of Seoul.

Fans of the tvN drama commended the café for its sophisticated interior and furniture. On top of that, Zino also displays classic paintings as well as photos of "Goblin" cast members.

Aside from Zino, fans of "Goblin" are eyeing to visit other filming locations of the drama. The list include Jumunjin Beach in Gangwon-do, Uhnyeongung Western House and Yongdap Station Bridge in Seoul, Borinara Hakwon Farm in Jeollabuk-do, Hanmi Bookstore in Incheon, and BBQ Olive Chicken Café in Gangnam.
