The exterior of the main building of this complex appears as the Cha Min’s mother Eom Ae-ran’s (Yun Yoo-sun) mansion in Abyss (어비스) (tvN, 2019); as seen in episode 2.

This appears as the property in which Yoon Ma-ri (Park Han-byul) and Kang In-wook (Ryu Soo-young) live at in Love in Sadness (슬플 때 사랑한다) (MBC, 2019) — as seen in episode 1.

The Odd Ball Event – a party of the young super rich — takes place here in episodes 5-6 of Devilish Joy (마성의 기쁨) (MBN/Dramax, 2018) and Myung Seok-hwan (An Se-ha), the host of the ball, burns a cheque and puts the ashes in the wine glass for a toast and he then calls Joo Gi-bbeum (Song Ha-yoon) an stage to drink it. Instead, Gi-Bbeum splashes the wine on Seok-Hwan and Gong Ma-sung (Choi Jin-hyuk) comes also to rescue and confesses to and kisses Gi-bbeum in front of everyone.

It is here where two gods doppelgangers of Ma Jin-Joo (Jang Na-Ra) and Choi Ban-Do (So Ho-Jun) have a fight in a heavenly garden in episode 12 of Go Back Couple (고백부부) (KBS2, 2017 — at 1:08).

This is where the wedding of Jung Jae-Chan’s (Lee Jong-Suk) colleagues takes place in final episode 32 of While You Were Sleeping (2017) (당신이 잠든 사이에) (SBS, 2017) and where everybody goes. And both, Jae-Chan and Nam Hong-Joo (Bae Suzy) catch the bridal bouquet.

Kang Soo-Jin (Uee) comes here in episode 8 of Manhole (맨홀-이상한 나라의 필) (KBS2, 2017) to take pictures for here presentation and Bong Pil (Kim Jae-Joong) gave her a surprise visit — another attempt to confess his feelings. Later-on, they both wished on a fountain also located in this garden.
