HOSPITAL
Appearing as ‘Yumyung Hospital’ this is where Kim Mi-so (Park Min-young) was hospitalized in episode 11 of Why Secretary Kim/What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim (김비서가 왜 그럴까) (tvN, 2018) after she fainted from the shock of gaining back her memories of the kidnapping incident. Lee Young-Joon (Park Seo-Joon) takes care of Mi-so and he thinks back to the event and it is the first time it is narrated in its totality. Interestingly enough, the hospital appears again in episode 13 (its exterior filmed from another angle) — this time, as ‘Seyeon Hospital’ where Mi-so’s ‘rocker’ father is warded after a stage dive went awry at one of his gigs. The inside scenes of episode 13 were however filmed at Seoul Medical Center [서울의료원].

Lee Do-ha (Lee Sang-yoon) accidentally hits Choi Michaela (Lee Sung-kyung) with his car in front of this hospital in episode 1 of About Time (멈추고 싶은 순간: 어바웃타임) (tvN, 2018). Michaela refuses to be treated, but Do-ha forces her into a wheelchair and asks the nurse to take her inside the hospital.

This was where Shin Jae-yi (Lee Yoo-young) was admitted to in episode 11 of Tunnel (터널) (OCN, 2017), after she was attacked by a murder suspect. She was discharged a few days later, and Dean Hong (Moon Sook) came to help her.
