In episode 8 of 18 Again (18 어게인) (JTBC, 2020), Hong Dae-young (Yoon Sang-hyun) reminisces about how estranged he became with his children and thinks back to a particular moment at this street where he crossed paths with his son Hong Shi-woo (Ryeo Un).
In a flashback in episode 5 of Memorials/Into the Ring /The Ballot (출사표) (KBS2, 2020), young Koo Se-ra (Kim Ha-yeon) walks along this path in the rain in search of Seo Gong-myung (Seo Yoon-hyuk), who had run away from home.
