The building with the clock we see in the background is the Magic Time Restaurant [매직타임은].
This is where Ra Joon-mo (Cha Tae-hyun) and Baek Seung-chan (Kim Soo-hyun) did some work for their upcoming 1 Night 2 Days shoot in episodes 7-8 of The Producers (프로듀사) (KBS2, 2015). They also brought along Cindy (IU) because she wanted to go since it’s her birthday; Tak Ye-jin (Gong Hyo-jin) tagged along, too.
This is also where the first kiss between Oh Ri-Jin (Hwang Jung-Eum) and Cha Do-Hyun (Ji Sung) happened in Kill Me, Heal Me (킬미, 힐미) (MBC, 2015).
Joo Hong-bin (Lee Dong-wook) stages a surprise event for Son Se-dong (Shin Se-kyung) at the carousel in episode 9 of Blade Man/Iron Man (아이언맨) (KBS2, 2014), not knowing that she shuns public attention. She eventually runs away out of embarrassment and he ends up having to chase after her.
Ryoo Tae-oh (Lee Joon) brings Maria Oh (Kim Min-jung) to this amusement park in episode 6 of Gap-dong/Gabdong, the Memories of Murder (Gapdongi/갑동이) (tvN, 2014) and they both ride the carousel —telling her how brave she is following him as he could be the murderer— with Ha Mu-yeom (Yoon Sang-hyun) observing the situation from a distance.
