Bonum 1957 [보눔1957]

My First First Love (2019); Twelve Nights (2018); Misty (2018)

It is opposite this hotel that Ryu Se-hyun (Hong Ji-yoon) is picked up in episode 8 of My First First Love/Because It’s My First Love (첫사랑은 처음이라서) (Netflix, 2019) for a day trip by this drama’s house mates.

Yoon Chan (Kim Do-wan) accompanies his ‘best friend’ Cheon Da-young (Han Da-sol) to a (fake) bus stop situated in front of this hotel in episode 7 of Twelve Nights (열두밤) (Channel A, 2018) and sends her off to the airport so that she is able to say good-bye to her mother.

In the final episode 16 of Misty (미스티) (JTBC, 2018), this place appears as Kang Tae-wook’s (Ji Jin-hee) parents’ home, when he visits them and confesses to his dad that he has killed someone.
