This street is where some protagonists in K-Dramaland go shopping. Some of shops they go to include:

— Michael Kors [마이클코어스]: Yeo Ha-jin (Mun Ka-young) goes shopping with her manager Yeo Ha-kyung (Kim Seul-gi) here in episode 2 of Find Me in Your Memory (그 남자의 기억법) (MBC, 2020).

ST Dupont (My Golden Life, Lookout, Healer)

— La Perla [라펠라코리아]: Lee Yoo-chan (Suho of EXO-K) comes here with Kim Bo-ra (Ha Yeon-soo) in episode 2 of Rich Man (리치맨) (MBN, Dramax, 2018) to relook her for a business meeting.

— Golden Dew [골든듀 청담본점]: Jung-eum (Hwang Jung-eum) comes here with her company’s boss who wants to exchange a dress and they coincidently meet Oh Doo-ri (Jung Young-joo) and Hoon-nam (Namgung Min) at the shop in episode 6 of The Undateables/Handsome Guy and Jung-Eum (훈남정음) (SBS, 2018). When leaving right after Hoon-nam, Jung-eum stumbles down the staircase in front the shop and Hoon-nam saves her.


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

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).

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.

The (unexpected?) kiss that Han Sung-Joon (Lee Tae-hwan) gave Oh Dong-Hee (Park Eun-bin) in episode 12 of Father I’ll Take Care of You ( 아버님 제가 모실게요) (MBC, 2016-17)? It happened here.

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).

Also in episode 11 of Queen In-Hyun’s Man/The Queen and I (인현왕후의 남자) (tvN, 2012), when Choi Hee-jin (Yoo In-na) walks past Ferragamo (#433) in a daze.

Park Hae-young (Song Seung-heon) and Lee-Sul (Kim Tae-Here) take a walk on this street on their date in episode 15 of My Princess (마이 프린세스) (MBC, 2011) on her last day as a n ordinary citizen.

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).
