Dardan Park [닥밭공원]

Our Beloved Summer (2021-22); Boys Over Flowers (2009)

Choi Woong (Choi Woo-shik) and top idol NJ (Roh Jeong-eui) meet up and have a chat over ice-cream at this park in episode 7 of Our Beloved Summer/That Year We (그 해 우리는) (SBS/Netflix, 2021-22).

This park appears as the neighborhood park of the Geum family in Boys Over Flowers/Boys Before Flowers (꽃보다 남자) (KBS2, 2009). In the middle of the competition about Geum Jan-di’s (Ku Hye-seon) being expelled from school or not, Koo Jun-pyo (Lee Min-ho) arrives unexpected at her door step at the end of episode 7/beginning of episode 8 and they come to this playground to talk. He pulls her into a hug and asks her to tell him just the simple sentences ‘I like you’; and he’d stop the competition.
In episode 9, this is the place where Jun-pyo prepared a surprise in decorating the whole playground. Jan-di feels it is like Christmas, a sentiment Jun-pyo cannot share. But this is how they come closer to each other and finally share their first kiss. In episode 12, Jan-di has a heart to heart talk with her father here.
