Jo Ji-ah (Chae Soo-bin) comes to this beach after her final goodbyes to Kim Min-kyu (Yoo Seung-ho) in episode 24/25 of I’m Not A Robot (로봇이 아니야) (MBC, 2017-18). And instead of leaving for Seoul, Min-kyu rushes back here to look for Ji-ah. After he frantically crosses the Yeocha Breakwater located on this very beach, he eventually finds her tearfully sitting by the seaside. But his happiness in finding her soon turns into shock when he sees her wearing the necklace he had given to Aji-3. He slowly understands that he was duped, and his allergy re-emerges before he realizes it.
