Banghwa Bridge [방화대교]

More Than Friends (2020); Romance (2002)

Lee Soo (Ong Seong-wu of Wanna One) comes to the feet at this bridge at night in episode 8 of More Than Friends/Number Of Cases (Kyeongueui Su/경우의 수) (JTBC, 2020) [SPOILER] burning the photos he took of Kyung Woo-yeon (Shin Ye-eun) — except one that he keeps in his wallet.

It is at the northern foot of this bridge that Choi Kwan-woo (Kim Jae-won) meets his school’s main bully and gangleader –who is the ‘boss’ at their school– to fight things out in episode 4 of Romance (Romangseu/로망스) (MBC, 2002). Kwan-woo tries to talk himself out of the situation but all of a sudden he is confronted to fight his brother Choi Jang-bi (Moon Ji-yoon). His brother joined the school bully’s gang without Kwan-woo’s knowledge and was given the task to beat his brother up as part of his gang initiation — which he does, and severely so.
