Hansung University [한성대학교]

Miss Independent Jieun 2 (2019); My First First Love (2019)

This appears as Serim University in web drama Miss Independent Jieun 2 (세상 잘 사는 지은씨2) (Dingo Story/V Original, 2019), where Lee Ji-eun (Kim Si-eun) is a freshman fashion student, and Ha Joon (Cha In-ha) is a sophomore design student. In episode 6, Ha Joon brings Ji-eun to the university library — which is “the only time of the year” it is empty, because of the on-going school festival — for some peace and quiet. After they started to date, the couple secretly met on the ‘engineering building’s rooftop’ in episode 11.

Parts of this university is seen as the one attended by Yoon Tae-oh (Ji Soo), Do-hyun (Jung Jin-young) and Han Song-yi (Jung Chae-yeon) in My First First Love/Because It’s My First Love (첫사랑은 처음이라서) (Netflix, 2019).
