Dosan Park [도산공원/島山公園]

Discovery of Love (2014)

Do Joon-ho (Yoon Hyun-min) and Yoon Sol (Kim Seul-gi) meet up at this park for their morning jog in episode 15 of Discovery of Love/Discovery of Romance (연애의 발견) (KBS2, 2014). Yoon Sol gets scolding for being late and she retorts by asking him to give three reasons why he likes her. This interrogation ends up with him kissing her on a whim; though non-consentingly.
