Duksung Girls’ High School [덕성여자고등학교]

Romance is a Bonus Book (2019); Drunk In Good Taste (2018); Where Stars Land (2018); Rich Man (2018); While You Were Sleeping (2017); Mystery Queen (2017); The Goblin (2016-17); Laurel Tree Tailors (2016-17); Another Miss Oh (2016); Coffee Prince (2007)

Right after “teaching” him to drink, Cha Eun-ho (Lee Jong-seok) and Kang Dan-i (Lee Na-young) sit down a moment in front of this school’s wall — as seen in a flashback in episode 4 of Romance Is A Bonus Book/Romance is a Supplement/How To Publish Love (로맨스는 별책부록) (tvN, 2019). This is also the moment that Eun-ho fell in love with Dan-i.

After the afternoon tea treat at the cafe, Jung Seo-hyun (No-eul — ex-RAINBOW) and Hong Dae-young (Kim Sung-gyu) take a walk along this path in episode 7 (full episode 2) of Drunk In Good Taste/Have A Nice Dessert! (#좋맛탱: 좋은 맛에 취하다) (tvN/Why Not, 2018). It’s here that Dae-young asks Seo-hyun out (“as a man and woman”); in turn, she says she’d think about it.

This school is supposed to be on Soo-yeon’s (Lee Je-hoon) way back home and in episode 22 of Where Stars Land / Fox Bride Star (여우각시별) (SBS, 2018), Han Yeo-reum (Chae Soo-bin) comes running here to meet Soo-yeon and confess her feelings.

In a flashback in episode 2 of Rich Man (리치맨) (MBN, Dramax 2018), we see Lee Yoo-chan (Suho of EXO) buying a necklace at a street stand here.

Nam Hong-joo (Bae Suzy) and Jung Jae-chan (Lee Jong-suk) pass by  in front of this high school individually in episode 3 of While You Were Sleeping (당신이 잠든 사이에) (SBS, 2017).

Yoo Sul-ok (Choi Kang-hee) and Ha Wan-seung (Kwon Sang-woo) also take this street in episode 14 of Mystery Queen (추리의 여왕) (KBS, 2017).

In episode 1 and 2 of Goblin/Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (쓸쓸하고 찬란하神 – 도깨비) (tvN, 2016-17), we see Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun) walk down exactly the same street [Yulgok-ro 3-gil] – coming back from school in episode 1 and looking for a ghost in episode 2. This is also where she sees Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) for the first time in episode 1 when both of them pass by each other – what a great meta-reference! In episode 12, this is where Eun-tak eats sweet potatoes with Sunny (Yoo In-na).

This is also where Na Yeon-sil (Jo Yoon-hee) from Laurel Tree Tailors (월계수 양복점 신사들) (KBS2, 2016-17) went to school. She remembers it in episode 1 during her wedding.

This is also the same exact spot where Oh Hae-young (Seo Hyun-jin) runs toward Park Do-kyung’s (Eric Mun of Shinhwa) in episode 4 of Another Miss Oh / Oh Hae-young Again (또 오해영) (tvN, 2016) and he catches her. He does and he holds her very tight and both freeze when realizing what this gesture means.

Ko Eun-chan (Yoon Eun-hye) and Choi Han-gyul (Gong Yoo) run pass the entrance of this school when escaping a jealous boyfriend that had just had picked up a fight with Eun-chan in episode 3 of Coffee Prince (커피 프린스 1호점) (2007).
