Gimpo Geumpa-ro [김포 금파로]

Start-Up (2020); A Piece of Your Mind (2020)

In her younger days, Seo Dal-mi (Heo Jung-eun) walked along this cherry blossom-lined street, as seen in episode 1 of Start-Up (스타트업) (tvN/Netflix, 2020) — once with Han Ji-pyeong (Nam Da-reum) following her, and another with her sister, Seo In-jae (Lee Re), which then escalates into a fight.

Han Seo-woo (Chae Soo-bin) calls Moon Ha-won (Jung Hae-in) from this street corner with cherry blossoms in bloom in episode 10 of A Piece of Your Mind/Half of a Half (반의 반) (tvN, 2020), and asks him to meet her halfway, or banbogi (반보기) because she “needs healing”. A little later, Ha-won comes to join her, and they share an embrace under the blossoms.
