Kim jo-jo (Kim So-hyun), Lee Hye-young (Jung Ga-ram) and Hwang Sun-o (Song Kang) and her friends attend this school in Love Alarm (좋아하면 울리는) (Netflix, 2019) — as seen in episode 1.
Yoon Tae-oh (Ji Soo) and Han Song-yi (Jung Chae-yeon) both attended this school as seen in a flashback in episode 1 of My First First Love/Because It’s My First Love (첫사랑은 처음이라서) (Netflix, 2019). In episode 3, Tae-oh drops off Ryu Se-hyun (Hong Ji-yoon) here because she does not want him to bring her to her house’s door.
This school appears as the high school that Cha Woo-sik (Kim Sun-ho), Lee Joon-ki (Lee Yi-kyung), Kook Ki-bong (Shin Hyun-soo) and Han Soo-yeon (Mun Ka-young) attended as seen in a flashback in episode 1 of Eulachacha Waikiki 2 / Welcome to Waikiki 2 (으라차차 와이키키 시즌2) (JTBC, 2019).
In episode 2 of Twelve Nights (열두밤) (Channel A, 2018), this school appears as ‘Aram Junior High School’, the school that Han Yoo-kyung (Han Seung-yeon, formerly of Kara) and her friend Kang Chae-won (Lee Yea-eun) have attended and decide to visit on Yoo-kyung’s third day in Seoul of her short 4-days stay in Seoul in 2010. At the school’s library, they go through their high school book and discover what they dreamed themselves to be as 25 years-old; the age they both have now.
This is where Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun) goes to school in Goblin/Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (쓸쓸하고 찬란하神 – 도깨비) (tvN, 2016-17).
Kang Seung-jae (Yoon Kye-sang) attends this high school in She Is Nineteen/My Sister-in-Law is 19/My 19 Year Old Sister-in-Law (형수님은 열아홉) (SBS, 2004). Han Yoo-min (Jung Da-bin) joins him in episode 4.
Jung Yoo-jin (Choi Ji-woo), Kim Sang-hyuk (Park Yong-ha), Oh Chae-lin (Park Sol-mi) and the rest all go to this high school, with Kang Jun-sang (Bae Yong-jun) joining them as a new student in episode 1 of Winter Sonata (겨울연가) (KBS2, 2002-03). In the story, the school is supposed to be located outside Seoul.
We see the gates of this high school in the background when On Jung-sun (Yang Se-jong) and Lee Hyun-soo (Seo Hyun-jin) find shelter here from the rain in episode 2 of Temperature of Love (사랑의 온도) (SBS, 2017) in front of Luna Touch.
