Hyanggyo-gil — Jeonju [향교길]

My First First Love (2019)

After arriving in Jeonju, Yoon Tae-oh (Ji Soo) and Han Song-yi (Jung Chae-yeon) take a walk down this street in episode 12 of My First First Love/Because It’s My First Love (첫사랑은 처음이라서) (Netflix, 2019). Song-yi instructs Tae-oh as to how he should react when she talks to her mother, and he jokingly tells her that she’s very ‘tiring’.
