Seoul Square [서울스퀘어]

Misaeng (2014)

This 23-storey building stands across from the main Seoul Station, and is connected to the station via underground. Aside from offices, it also houses retail and dining options, mostly on 1F and B1F.

Seoul Square was also the office setting for the hit drama Misaeng (미생) (tvN, 2014), and a number of floors in the building were used for filming the show, like the garden and the rooftop. Most notably, the entrance of the building was where protagonist Jang Geu-rae used to collect his thoughts, and where he’d also slipped a written reminder for himself between the slots of one of the columns.

There is a Misaeng-related exhibition located on B1 of the building, with information pertaining to the show and a display of props used in the show (information correct as of September 2016).

Infinity Challenge’s Muhan Company (무한상사, 2016) was apparently also filmed here.
