When teleporting to 2017 in episode 9 of Live Up To Your Name, Dr. Heo/Deserving of the Name (명불허전) (tvN, 2017), Heo Im (Kim Nam-gil) and Choi Yeon-Kyung (Kim Ah-Joong) arrive here. Heo Im lands here again in final episode 16 for a last time (?) — and Yeon-Kyung is right there.
Park Moo-Bin (Choi Woo-Sik) has a crush on Choi Ae-Ra (Kim Ji-Won) and decides to gift her a pair of sneakers in episode 3 of KBS2 Fight For My Way/Third-Rate My Way (쌈 마이웨이) (2017). After some misunderstandings, they meet up in this park. He tells her to be Cinderella and try the sneakers on. But actually they are too small and she wonders if she should really force herself.
Seoullo 7017 Skygarden is a public park that is located on a transformed elevated highway just north of Seoul Station [서울역] in the neighborhood of Hoeyeon-dong [회현동], Seoul; similar to New York City’s High Line Park. This walkway officially opened on May 20, 2017 and was since then already featured on many design/architecture websites.
Seoullo, the name of the park, means ‘towards Seoul’ and ‘Seoul Street’, and 7017 is a combination of the year of the construction of the highway (1970) and its transformation into a park (2017).
