The hotel rooftop/garden that Kim Jin-hyeok (Park Bo-gum) mulls over his talk with Cha Su-hyeon (Song Hye-kyo) in a conversation with his friend and colleague Jo Hye-in (Jeon So-nee), in episode 2 of Encounter/Boyfriend (남자친구) (tvN, 2018-19), overlooks this bridge.
Go Yeon-Woo (Park Hyung-Sik) and Kim Ji-Na (Ko Sung-Hee) walk over this bridge in episode 13 of Suits (슈츠) (KBS2, 2018) and Yeon-Woo proposes to Ji-na with a ring, followed by a kiss.
This overpass is shown in several episodes of Wok of Love/Greasy Melo (기름진 멜로) (SBS, 2018). In episode 7, for instance, Chil-Seong (Jang Hyuk) runs across this overpass to catch Sae-Woo (Jung Ryeo-won) who is sitting at the bus stop ‘Geumtocheon-gyo Bridge’ [금토천교]. After their drinking session in episode 11, Seo Poong (Lee Jun-ho) and Chil-Seong drags Sae-woo who is inside her suitcase as they pass through this overpass on their way to Chil-sung’s place. In episode 18, Chil-Seong followed Sam-Sun (Oh Eui-Sik) and Bo-Ra (Hong Yoon-Hwa) as they traverse this overpass going to the hotel. In episode 25, Sae-Woo (Jung Ryeo-won) crosses this bridge on her way to work.
Hwarangyuk-gyo (or Hwarangyuk Bridge) [화랑육교] is an pedestrian overpass-bridge located in Seongnam’s neighborhood of Sampyeong-dong [삼평동] in the Bundang District [Bundang-gu/분당구]. It leads up to bus stop ‘Geumtocheon-gyo Bridge’ [금토천교 정류장], which also appears in Wok of Love. If you take this bridge direction West, you’ll be heading directly towards Pangyo Seven Venture Valley Bus Stop [판교세븐벤처벨리 정류장]. If you take it in the opposite direction, you’ll be going to Eoul Park [어울공원].
