This was where a spate of child abductions took place in Criminal Minds (크리미널 마인드) (tvN, 2017). A little girl, Yu-na, was taken from right under her mother’s nose in episode 8, which prompts the NCI’s involvement in the case. In episode 9, Kim Hyun-joon (Lee Jun-ki) and Ha Sun-woo (Moon Chae-won) do a walkthrough of the area to retrace the sequence of Yu-na’s abduction.
Kim Young-Ho (So Ji-Sub) and Kang Joo-Eun (Shin Min-Ah) come here on their date in episode 15 of Oh My Venus (오 마이 비너스) (KBS2, 2015-16). They both write down their wishes down and in the end Young-ho proposes to Joo-eun in unraveling a part of her scarf in which a ring was hidden.
In episode 3 of Hyde, Jekyll & I (하이드 지킬, 나) (SBS, 2015), Herb Island appears as the garden of Koo Seo-Jin’s (Hyun-Bin) house. Jang Ha-Na (Han Ji-Min) comes here to meet Director Seo-jin but instead finds Robin and tells him — after a some exchanges and some joking around — about the Angel Bridge and that she remembers his necklace.
Herb Island was also the filming location for other dramas like The Producers (프로듀사) (KBS2, 2015), Cunning Single Lady/Sly and Single Again (앙큼한 돌싱녀) (MBC, 2014), and Cinderella’s Stepsister/Cinderella’s Sister (신데렐라 언니) (KBS2, 2010).
