Sungnyemun Gate / Namdaemun Gate [숭례문 / 남대문]

Hwayugi (2017-18); Falsify (2017); Chicago Typewriter (2017)

It is close to this gate that Jin Sun-Mi (Oh Yeon-Seo) stops while standing at a red light to offer some popcorn to a little boy ghost in episode 3 of Hwayuki/A Korean Odyssey (tvN, 2017-18) for which she rolls a flyer of her real estate agency in form of a bag. In the same time, zombie Bong-Soon (Lee Se-Young) arrives here with a truck, crawls out of it and finds Sun-mi’s address on the left behind ‘flyer-bag’.
Seo Ji-An (Shin Hye-Sun) and Choi Do-Kyung (Park Si-Hoo) pass by here on their way to Namdaemun Market [남대문시장] on their afternoon together in episode 32 of My Golden Life (황금빛 내 인생) (KBS2, 2017).
We see this gate in a sort of panorama shot in episode 16 of Falsify (조작) (SBS, 2017).
On their date in episode 9 of Chicago Typewriter (시카고 타자기) (tvN, 2017), Han Se-Joo (Yoo Ah-In) and Jeon Seol (Lim Soo-Jung) take the Seoul City Tour Bus [서울시티투어] — with ghost Yoo Jin-Oh (Ko Gyung-Pyo) tagging along. They also pass by this gate.
Sungnyemun Gate [숭례문], unofficially rather referred to as Namdaemun Gate [남대문], is Korea’s National Treasure No. 1. It constitutes one of the eight gates of Seoul Fortress Wall.
The gate is located in Jung-gu, between Seoul Station and City Hall.
