Dong-gu Children’s Traffic Safety Park [동구 어린이 교통공원]

Memorials (2020)

“I cross the road here,” Goo Se-ra (Im Jin-a/Nana from After School) quirkily says to Seo Gong-myeong (Park Sung-hoon), as they watch kiddy drivers make their way across the road in this park, in episode 8 (full episode 4) of Memorials/Into the Ring /The Ballot (출사표) (KBS2, 2020). It is here that she finds out that Mawon-gu is in deficit, and may not be able to pay their staff, or council members. Later in the episode’s epilogue, Gong-myeong tries to explain to Se-ra how big of a deal her decision at the council will be, to which she reminds him that her only goal since entering office was to earn a lot of money.
