Upon reaching the foreign country, Kitty discovers he is already seeing someone else, making her realize that love and relationships are more complicated than anticipated.

XO, Kitty Filming Locations
‘XO, Kitty’ is filmed in South Korea, especially in Seoul and seemingly in Incheon. As per reports, the shooting for the series was supposed to begin in early March 2022 and run through May. But after a couple of weeks of delay, principal photography for the debut season of the spin-off series commenced in late March 2022 and wrapped up in June of the same year. So, without much ado, let’s look at all the specific locations that can be spotted in the Netflix show!
Seoul, South Korea
Since most of the story is set in Seoul, a significant chunk of ‘XO, Kitty’ is lensed on location in and around the capital of South Korea itself. Whether the boarding school campus scenes or the outdoor portions as Kitty explores the foreign city, almost all are shot in the Seoul Special City.
As far as the school interior scenes are concerned, they are either taped in an actual school or on a sound stage of one of the film studios. Moreover, the Ssamzigil shopping mall at 44 Insadong-gil, Gyeongbok Palace at 161 Sajik-ro, and the locales of the Bukchon Hanok Village in Gyedong-gil, Jongno-gu, feature quite heavily through various episodes of the comedy series.
Incheon, South Korea
The Incheon Metropolitan City seems to be one of the production locations for ‘XO, Kitty.’ For instance, the cast and crew members possibly set up camp in and around the Incheon International Airport at 272 Gonghang-ro, Jung-gu, Incheon, to tape the season 1 scenes of Kitty’s arrival in South Korea. Over the years, its locales have been featured in numerous other TV shows as well. Some notable ones include ‘Crash Landing on You,’ ‘Boys Over Flowers,’ and ‘Where Stars Land.’
