Han So-yeon (Go Sung-hee) walks dejectedly along this street with AI hologram Holo (Yoon Hyun-min) by her side, in episode 1 of My Holo Love/I Holo You (나 홀로 그대) (Netflix, 2020), after witnessing her senior and crush, Yeon Gang-woo (Lee Ki-chan) kissing another woman. It starts raining heavily and she lets her tearful self continue to be drenched by the rain, despite Holo’s best (but futile) efforts.
In episode 5 of Strangers From Hell (타인은 지옥이다) (OCN, 2019), Jong-woo’s (Im Si-wan) office walks along this street as they look for a bar for their second round of drinks. Jong-woo stops to buy a bouquet of flowers from an ahjumma who reminds him of his mother.
