“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.

Kang So-bong (Gong Seung-yeon) and Nam Shin III (Seo Kang-joon) head up here after their bike ride in episode 18 of Are You Human?/Are You Human Too (너도 인간이니?) (KBS2, 2018) and he tells her that he does not need to hide that he is a robot when he is around her. In episode 23, So-bong returns here to look for Nam Shin III after it turns out it wasn’t him at the presentation but the human Nam Shin.

Seo Poong (Lee Jun-ho) confesses here to Dan Sae-woo (Jung Ryeo-won) in episode 24 of Wok of Love/Greasy Melo (기름진 멜로) (SBS, 2018); followed by a kiss.

Go Yeon-woo (Park Hyung-sik) finally confesses to Kim Ji-na (Ko Sung-hee) that he’s a ‘fake and a fraud’ in final episode 16 of Suits (슈츠) (KBS2, 2018).

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 (역도요정 김복주) (MBC, 2016-17). 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.”

Ku Ae-jung (Kong Hyo-jin) has a heart-to-heart talk here with Yoon Pil-joo (Yoon Kye-sang) in episode 7 of The Greatest Love/Best Love (최고의 사랑) (MBC, 2011).
