Gaksital location

Picture from here

   If anyone is interested in visiting the site where almost all pre-modern movies and dramas are filmed: Hapcheon, Yeongsang Theme Park (합천영상테마파크). It's the same where Capital Scandal was filmed and since the buildings were somehow familiar to my eyes, I went to look for the place. 
I know it's probably some unhealthy obsession to check filming sites of every period movie/drama and events, characters, but maybe I was born with it, maybe it's Maybelline?

I also found on the official website the full list of credits for this drama (make-up, clothes, lights, CGI etc.) which is here.

As for the filming location - according to this website, the site serves as the place of shooting movies/dramas that took place between circa 1930 - 1980. And since Haeinsa is 35 km from it, it means the site is located south of Korea, 3.5h from Seoul, 2 hours from Busan, South Gyeongsang Province. 
Look here for some info on the Province and place.
Look here for drama/movie list that was shot here.

And here, a treasure trove: pictures from the site.

And here as well.
