Ahn Junggeun Memorial Museum [안중근의사기념관]

Devilish Joy (2018); Manhole (2017)

Joo Gi-bbeum (Song Ha-yoon) and Gong Ma-sung (Choi Jin-hyuk) come to the park of this museum on their date in episode 15 of Devilish Joy (마성의 기쁨) (MBN/Dramax, 2018).

Bong Pil (Kim Jae-joong) possessed Jo Suk-tae (Baro from B1A4) and was able to talk to Kang Soo-jin (Uee) in episode 6 of Manhole (맨홀-이상한 나라의 필) (KBS2, 2017), on the street that leads up to this building. He also gave her a piggyback ride and was going to confess, but she fell asleep on his back.

The Ahn Jung-geun Memorial Hall [안중근의사기념관] is a museum dedicated to Korean-independence activist An Jung-geun (안중근, sometimes also Ahn Jung-geun). Ahn (1879 – 1910) assassinated Prince Itō Hirobumi, the Prime Minister of Japan when Korea was under Japanese colonial rule, for which he was imprisoned and later executed by Japanese authorities in 1910.

This museum was built in 1970 on the former site of the Chōsen Shrine –the most important Shinto shrine in Korea built in Korea during the Japanese colonial rule– and newly built in 2010. Composed of 12 exhibition halls and galleries, an auditorium, a library, and a rest area, this hall is located at the foot of Namsan Mountain, in Seoul’s neighborhood of Hoeyeon [Hoeyeon-dong/회현동]. Just walk straight ahead when on top of the Stairs to Namsan Tower — Sam-soon Stairs [삼순이 계단] and you’ll reach the monument seen in Manhole (2017).
This museum sits right next to the Namsan Public Library [남산도서관].
