Children’s Grand Park [서울어린이대공원]

Her Private Life (2019); Bride of the Water God 2017 (2017)

Lee Sun-joo (Park Jin-joo) shoots fake couple photos of Sung Deok-mi (Park Min-young) and Ryan Gold (Kim Jae-wook) at this park in episode 4 of Her Private Life (그녀의 사생활) (tvN, 2019). Later, Sun-joo leaves the two other behind (to tend to her son) and Deok-mi proposes Ryan to still explore the park a bit.

This is the park where Habaek (Nam Joo-hyuk) “lands” when arriving in the human world in episode 1 of TVN’s Bride of the Water God 2017 (하백의 신부 2017) (2017). In this park also situates the Children’s Great Music Fountain [어린이대공원 음악분수] which Habaek attempts to conjure using his divine powers after arriving and where he meets Yoon So-Ah (Shin Se-Kyung) for the second time after arrival.
