Go Mi-rae (Yeon Woo, formerly of Momoland) is driven down this street in episode 6 of Cheat On Me, If You Can (바람피면 죽는다) (KBS2, 2020-21).

Street

Otherwise, the folks of K-Dramaland often walk along this street:

No. 462: Oh Seong-Yeong (Han Ji-Eun) walks down this street –with empty brand-name bags as she explains later– and stops for a moment in front of the Gucci Branch in episode 5 of Lovestruck in the City (도시남녀의 사랑법) — Series 1: City Couple’s Way of Love (KakaoTV/Netflix, 2020-21).

No. 461: After being fired from Cha Beauty, Han Soo-yeon (Kim Bo-ra) walks down this street— on the heights of ST Dupont— in episode 3 of Touch (터치/Teochi) (Channel A, 2020) and suddenly has an idea how to rectify the mistake she made with Kang Do-jin’s (Lee Tae-hwan) skin.

No. 460: Yeo Ha-jin (Mun Ka-young) walks past Giorgio Armani’s Cheongdam Branch [조르지오아르마니 청담점] (just on the opposite side of this street) on the way to go shopping with her manager Yeo Ha-kyung (Kim Seul-gi) in episode 2 of Find Me in Your Memory (그 남자의 기억법) (MBC, 2020).

No. 442 + No. 462: Oh Ha-na (Ha Ji-won) walks by both the Jil Sander (#442) and Gucci (#462) stores on this street in episode 1 of The Time We Were Not In Love/The Time That I Loved You/The Time I’ve Loved You (너를 사랑한 시간) (SBS, 2015).

Instead of directly visiting his parents when coming back to South Korea, Park Tae-in (Gong Yoo) comes to this street on a shopping spree with his good friend Nam Jaem-ma (Choi Yeo-jin) in episode 1 of Hello My Teacher/Biscuit Teacher and Star Candy (건빵선생과 별사탕 / 건빵 선생과 별사탕) (SBS, 2005).
