Vincenzo (2021); The King: Eternal Monarch (2020); Goblin (2016-17)

This building is seen as the Wusang Law Firm office, where Hong Cha-young (Jeon Yeo-bin) works as an attorney in Vincenzo (빈센조) (tvN/Netflix, 2021) — for example, in episode 1.

King Lee Gon (Lee Min-ho) looks towards this building in The King: Eternal Monarch (더킹:영원의 군주) (SBS, 2020) while standing opposite it at Shinsegae Department Store.

The Grim Reaper (Lee Dong-wook) and Sunny (Yoo In-na) come to a stop in front this building as they talk in episode 9 of Goblin/Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (쓸쓸하고 찬란하神 – 도깨비) (tvN, 2016-17).
