This is where Colin (Lee Jong-Hyun) gives a free concert in episode 13 of A Gentleman’s Dignity (신사의 품격) (SBS, 2012) after having run away. The “four gentlemen” go out to search for him in Hongdae and are standing in front of Colin at the end of the episode. “I heard that someone among the four of you is my father. Who is it?”, greets them Colin.
Seo Joon (Jang Keun-Suk) and Jung Ha-Na (Yoona) meet here in episode 11 of KBS2 Love Rain (사랑비) (2012) and go on a date.
This is a usual spot for Mei-ri/Mary (Moon Geun-Young) and Kang Mu-Gyul (Jang Keun-Suk) in Mary Stayed Out All Night/Marry Me, Mary! (메리는외박중) (KBS2, 2010). In episode 2 she follows him here and while he plays a song for a small crowd, Mary thinks over her dad’d proposition to get married to Jung-in (Kim Jae-Wook) for a hundred days before deciding who is the right man for her. In episode 8, the day of Mary’s and Jung-in’s engagement, Mu-gyul asks her to meet up here and she finds him, again, playing to a crowd.
Do Bong-soon (Park Bo-young) and Ahn Min-hyuk (Park Hyung-sik) walk pass on the outer walls of this park on their date in episode 11 of Strong Woman Do Bong Soon (2017).

As Tentenation reports (many thanks!) it’s trademark playground doesn’t exit anymore. It disappeared in 2016.
