Dongguk University [동국대학교]

Encounter (2018)

In a flashback in episode 2 of Encounter/Boyfriend (남자친구) (tvN, 2018-19) as Kim Jin-hyeok (Park Bo-gum) answered questions at his interview with Donghwa Hotel, this is seen as the university that he graduated from. He and his parents are all smiles as they pose in front of the school.
