Duksung Girls’ High School [덕성여자고등학교]

Love Alarm (2019); The Secret Life of My Secretary (2019); 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)

Hwang Sun-O (Song Kang) waits in front of this school’s gate for Kim Jo-jo (Kim So-hyun) after they have broken up — as seen in a flashback in episode 8 of Love Alarm (좋아하면 울리는) (Netflix, 2019).

After being fired, Jung Gal-hee (Jin Ki-joo) takes a day off enjoying life and walking through Seoul in episode 4 (full episode 2) of The Secret Life of My Secretary/I Loved You From The Beginning/How to Train My Blind Boss (초면에 사랑합니다) (SBS, 2019). On this trip, she also comes to this street, listens to street musicians and checks out the market stands.

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).
