The probably most well known scene at the Namsan Cable Car is Gu Jun-pyo (Lee Min-Ho) and Geum Jan-di (Ku Hye-sun) being locked up in one of the cars and having to spend a night together there in episode 4 of Boys Over Flowers/Boys Before Flowers (꽃보다 남자) (KBS2, 2009).
Heo Im (Kim Nam-gil) and Choi Yeon-Kyung (Kim Ah-Joong) take the Cable Car to Namsan Tower in episode 15 of Live Up To Your Name, Dr. Heo/Deserving of the Name (명불허전) (tvN, 2017).
Kang Sun-Woo (Cho Jung-Seok) and Na Bong-Sun (Park Bo-Young) also take the cable car but to descend from Namsan Tower at the end of episode 12 and the beginning of episode 13 of Oh My Ghostess/Oh My Ghost (오 나의 귀신님) (tvN, 2015). It’s in this cable car that Bong-Sun takes the courage to tell Sun-Woo that she is possessed by a ghost and it’s not her he actually fell for. She runs aways once the cable car arrives at the bottom station and we see Sun-Woo running out of this station in search for her.
Yong Tae-Yong (Park Yoochun) and Hong Se-Na (Jung Yoo-Mi) also take the cable car in episode 10 of Rooftop Prince/Attic Prince (옥탑방 왕세자) (SBS, 2012), to enjoy the night view from the Namsan Tower; we see them wait on the top station to descend.
In episode 17 of Can’t Lose/Hate to Lose/ Can’t Live With Losing (지고는 못살아) (MBC, 2011), Eun-Jae (Choi Ji-woo) and Hyung-Woo (Yoon Sang-hyun) both independently take the cable car to meet up at Namsan Tower (Hyung-woo).
Namsan Cable Car [남산 케이블카] is South Korea’s first cable car and runs from the base of Namsan Mountain up to Namsan Mountain with its famous Namsan Tower. It counts as one of the most famous tourist attraction of South Korea.
