Korea Health University — Gimcheon Campus (closed) [김천 한국보건대 (폐교)]

You Are My Spring (2021); Undercover (2021); Vincenzo (2021); L.U.C.A.: The Beginning (2021); Hotel Del Luna (2019)

A damaged car with a dead body(?) on it and a black cat are seen parked at this site in episode 1 of You Are My Spring (너는 나의 봄) (tvN, 2021).

Vincenzo Cassano/Park Joo-hyung (Song Joong-ki) holds the corrupt police detectives hostage at this abandoned building in episode 10 of Vincenzo (빈센조) (tvN/Netflix, 2021), with him threatening to push them off the edge if they do not comply with his demands.

Right at the beginning of episode 1 of L.U.C.A.: The Beginning / LUCA (루카: 더 비기닝) (tvN, 2021), a man with a baby in his arms is chased through this abandoned building while a voice tells the child not to forget that it is not a monster.

This is where the Moon Tree that Jang Man-wol (IU/Lee Ji-eun) is linked with, is located in Hotel Del Luna (호텔 델루나) (tvN, 2019) — as seen, for instance in episode 4 or 11.

This site also appears in episode 16 of Undercover (Eondeokeobeo/언더커버) (JTBC, 2021).

In June 1996, Korea Health University [한국보건대학교] started a four year construction period to build her Gimcheon Campus on a site of 70,000 square meters in the village of Okyul [Okyul-ri/옥율리] in Gimcheon’s Eomo Township [Eomo-myeon/어모면]. The construction was then stopped abruptly in June 1999 when the IMF crisis hit, apparently because of a legal battle tied to the contractor’s bankruptcy. At this time, 70% of the construction of its three buildings (except their interior) had already been completed. The entrance was closed off in 2009 and a warning notice against unauthorized trespassing was put into place. Today, the abandoned buildings mainly serve as filming sites for dramas, MVs, and movies.
