In episode 2 of Eulachacha Waikiki/Laughter in Waikiki/Welcome to Waikiki (으라차차 와이키키) (JTBC, 2018), Kang Dong-gu (Kim Jung-hyun) has an upset stomach and while in search for a toilet in this parks meets girlfriend Min Soo-ah (Lee Joo-woo) who ends the relationship here with him. Later he finds a portable toilet in this park. He does his business thinking that it’s a public toilet but it turns out to be toilets for sale. While debating with the salesperson, Han Yoon-Ah (Jung In-Sun) comes along and hears of Dong-gu’s story.

Jo Ji-ah (Chae Soo-bin) in robot mode and Kim Min-kyu (Yoo Seung-ho) come here in episode 9 of I’m Not A Robot (로봇이 아니야) (MBC, 2017-18). Min-kyu understands that Ji-ah has a soothing effect on his allergy and embraces her. In episode 12, Min-kyu is back here with his first love Ye Ri-el (Hwang Seung-un)- desperately hoping he can kiss her on this, their second date. Ji-ah — accompanied by Hong Baek-gyun (Uhm Ki-joon) — is close by so that his allergy won’t break out. In the end, both Min-kyu and Ji-ah find themselves alone, underneath an umbrella (a prototype that she has created once and somehow ended up in Min-kyu’s hands) and she kisses him.

Yoon Ji-Ho (Jung So-min) and Nam Se-Hee (Lee Min-ki) come to Gyeongui Line Book Street [경의선책거리] on their date in episode 12 of Because This Is My First Life/This Life Is Our First (이번 생은 처음이라) (tvN, 2017). Se-hee sees a game stand where he can win a doll in form of a snail (Ji-ho’s favorite animal) by popping balloons with a dart. He fails miserably until Ji-ho steps in and wins to the amazement of everyone else watching. This is also the case of Yang Ho-rang (Kim Ga-eun) and Sim Won-seok (Kim Min-suk) who, coincidently, came here as well for their date at the same moment. A little walk later on, Se-hee gifts Ji-ho with earrings.

Gyeongui Line Book Street [경의선책거리] is also seen in episode 2 ‘B Head and Love Letter’ of Drama Stage (드라마 스테이지) (tvN,2017-18), when Jo Woo-jin (Song Ji-hyo) walks lovesick through this park or is piggybacked.
