The Undateables (2018); Rich Man (2018); My Golden Life (2017); Lookout (2017); Father I'll Take Care of You (2016); The Time We Were Not In Love (2015); Healer (2014-15); Queen In-Hyun's Man (2012); Hello My Teacher (2005)

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.

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).

It is also where some protagonists in K-Dramaland do their shopping. Shops they go to are the following:

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.
