Flower Staircase

My Strange Hero (2018-19); Rooftop Prince (2012); Brilliant Legacy (2009)

It is in front of the ‘Before I Die Mural’ that is located on these stairs that Kang Bok-su (Yoo Seung-ho) makes Kim Myung-ho (Shin Dam-Soo) apologize to Son Soo-jeong (Jo Bo-ah) in episode 4 of My Strange Hero/Bok-Su’s Back (복수가 돌아왔다) (SBS, 2018-19).

Park-ha (Han Ji-min) walks through Ihwa Mural Village [이화 벽화마을] in episode 15 of Rooftop Prince (옥탑방 왕세자) (SBS, 2012) enjoying the scenery — with Yong Tae-yong (Park Yoo-chun) following her at a distance. At one point, she sits down at this staircase.

This is where Ko Eun-seong (Han Hyo-joo) finds Seon Woo-hwan’s (Lee Seung-gi) grandmother Jang Suk-ja (Ban Hyo-jung) lying unconscious on the ground on her way back home in episode 3 of Brilliant Legacy/Shining Inheritance (찬란한 유산) (SBS, 2009).

These stairs are located – or better make-up — large parts of the street Yulgok-ro 19-gil [율곡로19길] in Ihwa Mural Village [이화 벽화마을],
in Seoul’s neighborhood Ihwa [Ihwa-dong/이화동], in the Jongno District [Jongno-gu/종로구]. The stairs lead directly up to the Ihwa-dong Village Museum [이화동 마을박물관]. From there it is very near to Naksan Park [낙산공원].

[NOTE] It is highly likely that these flowers have been painted over and no longer exist
