This area is seen as Haewol-dong in the fictional town of Muchon in episodes 8, 9 and 11 of Tell Me What You Saw (본대로 말하라) (OCN, 2020), which is considered gang territory with various factions staking claim. For example, the photographer who witnessed a murder gets chased down by gang members this street in episode 8. Later, as Oh Hyun-jae (Jang Hyuk) walks down this same street, he comes across a second murder victim.
