“When people come up to some place high like this, they become lighthearted. And so they get the courage to make confessions. Later, if you want to get a proposal, go somewhere like this.”, this is what Jeon Jin-Ho (Lee Min-Ho) tells Park Gae-In (Son Ye-Jin) in episode 8 of Personal Taste/Personal Preference (개인의 취향) (MBC, 2010) about this place; telling her indirectly that he likes her — all wrapped up in a lesson how to date correctly.
Jung Hae-ra (Shin Se-kyung) works out here on a cold winter day with her ‘aunt’ Lee Sook Hee (Hwang Jung Min) tagging along in episode 7 of Black Knight: The Man Who Guards Me (흑기사) (KBS2, 2017-18).
Frustrated Lee Yoo-mi (Song Ji-eun) does here to drink in episode 5 of Secret Romance (애타는 로맨스) (OCN, 2017) and finds her Jung Hyun-tae (Kim Jae-young) here.
Kim Bok-Joo (Lee Sung-Kyung) and Jung Joon-Hyung (Nam Joo-Hyuk) go here after his confession at her part time job in episode 11 of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (2016). Here he confesses that she is actually his first love and he proposes to date for a month to see if she likes him back.
This is where Jang Jae-Yeol (Zo In-Sung) and Han Gang-Woo (Do Kyung-Soo) meet twice in episode 4 of It’s OK, It’s Love/It’s Okay, That’s Love (괜찮아, 사랑이야) (SBS, 2014). First, Jae-Yeol is angry at Gang-Woo, throws money at him and tells him to run away when his father wants to beat him again. The next time, we see Gang-Woo with bloody knuckles at this place and he tells Jae-Yeol proudly that he defended his mother against his father and Jae-Yeol retorts: “You didn’t attack your father. You defended yourself. You just defended yourself from his attack.”
