Anseong Astronomical Science Museum [안성맞춤천문과학관]

Perfume (2019)

Seo E-do (Shin Sung-rok) brings Min Ye-rin (Go Won-hee) here in episode 10 (full episode 5) of Perfume/Peopyoom (퍼퓸) (KBS2, 2019) to view the tail of the ‘Linear Comet’, which would result in hundreds of shooting stars. As the shooting stars appear, Ye-rin makes a wish, and eventually has a brief heart-to-heart with E-do about the people in life who’d make them shine the brightest.
