In episode 8 of My Girl (마이 걸) (SBS, 2005-06), Ju Yu-rin (Lee Da-hae) finally fulfils her childhood dream to visit the observatory aka Sky Deck when she does so with Seol Gong-chan (Lee Dong-wook). In episode 16, the couple reunites here again and they seal their love with a kiss in the elevator.

Sim Chung (Gianna Jun) goes here to meet Heo Joon-Jae (Lee Min-ho) in episode 3 of The Legend of the Blue Sea (푸른 바다의 전설) (SBS, 2016-17) and takes a swim in the aquarium. Joon-Jae really shows up at the aquarium in episode 4. He knows that he knows Chung but can’t remember from where – but more important things come up as he has to save her from the aquarium’s security and they both run out of the place.

An Dan-te (Sung Hoon) comes to the rooftop of this building in episode 1 of Level Up (레벨업) (MBN/Dramax, 2019).

The building’s exterior

Often the building’s outside is also featured; especially in scenes at Yeouido Hangang Park [한강 공원 여의도 지구]. On Heo Im’s (Kim Nam-gil) “date” with Oh Ha-Ra (Roh Jeong-Eui) in episode 10 of Live Up To Your Name, Dr. Heo/Deserving of the Name (명불허전) (tvN, 2017), the 63 building is in the background.

When Nam Soo-ri (Park Kyu-sun) sees this building from the Han River he thinks there is a lump of gold integrated in its facade and wants to get it together with Habaek (Nam Joo-Hyuk) in episode 3 of tvN’s Bride of the Water God 2017 (하백의 신부 2017) (2017).

Lee Eun-bi (Kim So-hyun) and Han Yi-an (Nam Joo-hyuk) buy cotton candy at the park outside this building — which can be seen in the background — in episode 12 of Who Are You: School 2015 (후아유: 학교 2015) (KBS2, 2015).

Ki-Bum (Key) fulfills Chae-Yeon’s (Jung Chae-yeon) wish to see 63 Square up close in episode 16 of Drinking Solo (혼술남녀) (tvN, 2016) in taking her on a Hangang River Ferry Cruise.
