Sun Ok-nam (Ko Du-shim) and her daughter Jeon-seom (Kang Mi-na of Gugudan) walk along this street amidst curious stares in episode 2 of Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter/Gyeryong Fairy Tale/Tale of Fairy (계룡선녀전) (tvN, 2018), in search for a hair salon. In episode 8, Jung Yi-hyun (Yoon Hyun-min) and Kim Geum (Seo Ji-hoon) accompany young Ok-nam (Moon Chae-won) down an alley just off the main street after a meal. She spots an ‘escape room’ facility and the trio decide to head in.
