Inha University [인하대학교]

Secret Forest (2017); Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo (2016-17)

In a flashback scene, we see Deputy Chief Lee Chang-Joon (Yoo Jae-Myung) come to Inha University for an event that celebrates the appointment of professor Young Il-yae (Lee Ho-Jae) as Minister of Justice in episode 3 of Secret Forest/Stranger (비밀의 숲) (tvN, 2017).
Parts of this university appear as Haneol Sport University in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (2016-17). One of its main sites that recurrently appears is the In-Kyung Pond with its pavilion. Also, the roof top hang-out with the bed is situated on Inha University Building No. 7 [인하대학교 7호관]; the building east of In-Kyung Pond. If you’ll take a closer look, you’ll see the Flying Dragon Tower, the mascot of Inha university, in the background.

This is where the major parts of Haneol Sport University were filmed. Other parts were filmed at Seoul National University of Science and Technology [서울과학기술대학교 종합운동장], Sahmyook University [삼육대학교], Korea National Sport University [한국체육대학교] and Yongin University [용인대학교].

  1. which university is the bok joo room(students residence)

    1. Hi Sasa! Honestly?! I never looked into this. My guess would be Inha University (if it’s not a film set). Maybe somebody who reads this knows?!

  2. Wishing well

    i just want to know which university is the wishing well scene?

  3. Hi, Can you come to Inha even if you’re not a student there? Thanks!

    1. Hi! Usually university campuses are open to the public. Ivy just posted that you can even eat at the cafeteria:
