These stairs were made famous through – and named after – My Name is Kim Sam-Soon/My Lovely Sam Soon (내 이름은 김삼순) (MBC, 2005) and its famous last kiss scene in episode 16. Since then, they regularly show up as filming location.

Their spot is just next to (or slightly behind) the Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education [서울특별시교육청 교육연구정보원] building.
— In Let’s Fight Ghost / Bring it on, Ghost (싸우자 귀신아) (tvN, 2016), Kim Hyun-Ji (Kim So-Hyun) disappears here on top of the stairs in episode 8.
— In episode 6 of Bubblegum (2015), Park Ri-Hwan (Lee Dong-Wook) and Kim Haeng-Ah (Jeong Ryeo-Won) eat oden at a street stall right at the foot of the stairs.
— Kang Seo-Wool (Nam Ji-Hyun) takes these stairs in episode 1 of What Happens to My Family/What’s With This Family (가족끼리 왜 이래) (KBS2, 2014-15) to visit Namsan Tower.
