Nam Doo-ah (Kim Bo-ra) comes to this university campus (‘K University’) to meet Yoo Da-ham (Kim Jong-hoon) in the #23 omnibus story of Love Scene Number (러브씬넘버) (MBC, 2021) — as seen in episode 1. Part of the School of Social Sciences [사회과학대학] was also seen in the #35 omnibus story in episode 5, where Yoon Ban-ya (Ryu Hwa-young) holds a lecturing job, and is subsequently let go from.
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.
Dongguk University [동국대학교] is a private university that was established in 1906 as a Buddhist-run school, and continues to be affiliated with Buddhism today. Myeongjin Hall [명진관], where the Encounter/Love Scene Number scene was filmed, is the oldest building in the university, built in 1959. The university is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Jangchung [Jangchung-dong/장충동] in the Jung District [Jung-gu/중구].
