While in his parked car outside this building in episode 5 of Military Prosecutor Doberman (군검사 도베르만) (tvN, 2022), Do Bae-man (Ahn Bo-hyun) thinks back briefly to what Kang Ha-joon (Kang Young -seok) had said to him in his new office, before driving off.

This is seen as the ‘CVN’ broadcast building where Jung Soo-hyun (Lee Sun-bin) and Kim Hye-jin (Park Ha-na) work in The Great Show/Widaehan Sho (위대한 쇼) (tvN, 2019); as seen in episode 1.
