Goo Hae-ra (Lee Min-jung) is paid to show an Italian business man around Busan and she brings him here in episode 1 of Fates & Furies/Fates and Furies (운명과 분노) (SBS, 2018-19). In episode 2, she is invited to a high society party thrown by Tae In-joon (Joo Sang-wook) and Jin Tae-o (Lee Ki-woo) to celebrate a business deal between their two companies and when Hae-ra saves the party by singing a song, another business man takes notice of her and tells her that he’d fulfill her a wish and she promptly asks him to see this bridge from the sky. And off she takes with In-joon on her side in a helicopter. In episode 4, both of them have a fall out at the feet of this bridge.

Gwangandaegyo [광안대교], that translates to Gwangan Bridge or Diamond Bridge, is counted as Busan’s landmark opened in 2003. Spanning a little over 7 kilometers, it is South Korea’s second longest bridge after Incheon Bridge. It can be seen clearly from Gwangalli Beach Busan [광안리해수욕장] and is an attraction especially at night when it is illuminated.

The bridge stretches across Busan’s neighborhoods Millak [Millak-dong/민락동] and Namcheon [Namcheon-dong/남천동], both located in the Suyeong District [Suyeong-gu/수영구].
