Jumunjin Beach Bus Stop
Bangtan Boys, better known as BTS, shot to international fame last year after attending the American Music Awards.
They had already grown a steady base of fans in Europe, but they quickly surpassed all expectations in the American market.
The BTS fan base, calling themselves ARMY, is as outstanding as the boys are. Many fans come to Korea every day thanks to their love for BTS.

The city of Gangneung in Gangwon Province has set up a replica of a bus stop featured on the cover of BTS’ full-length album “You Never Walk Alone.”
Gangneung, a city on the east coast of the country, recently built a bus stop on one of its beaches, Jumunjin. The location is the spot where the shooting of BTS’ album jacket took place.
The new bus stop will not function as an actual stop for local buses, according to the Gangneung city government. It will instead serve as a photo spot for BTS fans and tourists.
The beach has become a popular tourist attraction since it appeared in the popular tvN series “Guardian: The Lonely and Great God,” which aired from December 2016 to January 2017.
Released in February 2017, BTS’ full-length album “You Never Walk Alone” has enjoyed popularity, especially the lead track “Spring Day.”

BTS “You Never Walk Alone” album cover location
To go to the BTS “You Never Walk Alone” album cover location, you have to go to Jumunjin Beach first.
The buses on Gangneung City Bus 300 run 5-10 minutes apart from Gangneung City – within Jumunjin Town – Jumunjin Beach.

Right next to the bus stop, there is a sign indicating Jumunjin Beach, and on the other side of the street is a sign indicating the direction of the BTS album jacket location.
Just follow that arrow for five minutes and you’ll see the album jacket bus stop.
If you go into the parking lot of Jumunjin Beach, where the arrow points, a statue of a squid will greet you.
There’s a sign saying that BTS’ album jacket location
Passing the parking lot, you’ll find Jumunjin Beach. And there’s a sign saying that BTS’ album jacket location is about 200 meters away.
Cheer up a little more! On the way to the bus stop, you’ve made a fish shape out of tiles.
Finally, BTS bus stop appeared. It was a weekday when I went, and it wasn’t long after the bus stop was reopened, so there was no one around.
If you want to take a selfie sitting at the bus stop alone, you need a tripod.
