Ski World [비발디 파크 스키월드]
Looking for a place with the most snow, Heo Joon-jae (Lee Min-ho) takes Sim Chung (Gianna Jun) here in The Legend of the Blue Sea (푸른 바다의 전설) (SBS, 2016-17). He teaches her how to ski and, of course, she races down the slope before he has even finished to explain her how to brake. He catches her and both roll in the snow. Once having come to a stop, Joon-Jae finally asks her to pronounce the words. “I love you,” he means and it nearly sounds like a confession when he tells her these words to repeat them. But actually he remembers a voice and wants to verify if it’s hers.
The three best friends Ho-jeong Yun (Chae Rim), Cha-hee Kang (Yun-yeong Choi) and Su-ji Kang (Lee Ui-Jeong) come here in episode 1-2 of We Are Dating Now (지금은 연애중) (SBS, 2002). Ho-jae Yun (Kwon Sang-Woo) persuades Kyu-in Choi (So Ji-Sub) with a white lie to follow him here and Ho-jeong falls in love with a student that works here to finance his studies (and rip girls off).
