Jahamun-ro [자하문로]

To. Jenny (2018)

This street is shown in several scenes in the drama To.Jenny (투제니) (KBS2, 2018). In episode 1 for an instance, Jeong-min (Kim Sung-cheol) is passing by in front of a wall mural in this street when he sees Na-ra/Jenny’s (Jung Chae-yeon) social media update. At the other part of the street, Na-ra/Jenny is seen walking after her shift at the café. Still in episode 1, Jeong-min and Na-ra/Jenny walk on this street after their guitar lesson. When Jeong-min found out that Na-ra/Jenny’s contract with JW Entertainment is already expired in episode 2, Jeong-min runs passing this street to see her in her house.
