Hyanggyo-gil — Jeonju [향교길]

My Roommate Is A Gumiho (2021); My First First Love (2019)

No. 73 – Lee Dam (Hyeri of Girl’s Day) drags a drunk Do Jae-jin (Kim Do-wan) on her back down this street in episode 1 of My Roommate Is A Gumiho/Frightening Cohabitation (간 떨어지는 동거) (tvN, 2021), when they both fall as she collapses under his weight. Jae-jin then picks himself up and takes off running down the street, with Lee Dam chasing after him.

No. 105 – 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’.
