Jo Sang-koo (Lee Je-hoon) follows Han Geu-roo (Tang Joon-sang) to this amusement park in episode 8 of Move To Heaven/Move To Heaven: I Am a Person Who Arranges Articles Left by Deceased (무브 투 헤븐: 나는 유품정리사입니다) (Netflix, 2021), to find out where Geu-roo and his late father went on their annual picnic. Uncle and nephew eventually have fun together by going on the rides – something that Geu-roo had never dared to do.
Daejeon O-World [대전오월드] is a theme park located in Daejeon’s neighborhood Samjeong [Samjeong-dong/삼정동] in the Dong District [Dong-gu/동구]. It is a combination of an amusement park and a zoo (the second largest in South Korea), similar to Seoul Grand Park [서울대공원] but with clear boundaries between the two sections.
First established as the public amusement park ‘Daejeon Zoo [대전동물원]’ and opened on May 5 2002 by Daejeon Urban Corporation, it underwent a name change to its current name in 2009 to be more encompassing and better representative of its facilities. Today, it is the only amusement park in Daejeon City.
