House Ihwa Mural Village

Touch (2020); Are You Human? (2018); Three Colors of Fantasies III (2017); Introverted Boss (2017); Goblin (2016-17)

The exterior of this house (from a different side than seen usually in K-Dramaland) appears as Han Soo-yeon’s (Kim Bo-ra) and her sister’s home in Jung Young-A (Yeon Woo, formerly of Momoland) Touch (터치/Teochi) (Channel A, 2020) — seen in episode 7, for instance.

Kang So-bong (Gong Seung-yeon) and Nam Shin III (Seo Kang-joon) head up the stairs in front of this house during their bike ride in episode 18 of Are You Human?/Are You Human Too (너도 인간이니?) (KBS2, 2018) and they fight about who will carry the bikes up the stairs.

Park Se-geon (Ahn Hyo-seop) finds Nan-hee (Kim Seul-gi) in front of this house — dressed as a soju bottle — and she comforts him about his mother who won’t come to watch his fashion show in episode 6 of Queen of the Ring (반지의 여왕), the third story of the mini-series/drama trilogy Three Colors of Fantasies (세가지 색 판타지)(MBC/Naver 2017).

This place appears as ‘New York Barbershop’ in Introverted Boss/My Shy Boss/Sensitive Boss (내성적인 보스) (tvN, 2017). This is where Chae Ro-Woon (Park Hye-soo) and her family live.

It is just in front of this place, too, where Ji Eun-Tak (Kim Go-eun) talks with ghosts and is observed by Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) in episode 2 of Goblin (쓸쓸하고 찬란하神-도깨비) (tvN, 2016-17).
