Touch Your Heart (2019); Legal High (2019); Room No. 9 (2018); Player (2019); Your Honor (2018); Come and Hug Me (2018); Misty (2018); Cross (2018); Prison Playbook (2017-18); Defendant (2017)

Kwon Jung-rok (Lee Dong-wook) and Oh Yoon-seo (Yoo In-na) come here in episode 5 of Touch Your Heart/Reach of Sincerity (진심이 닿다) (tvN, 2019), and Jung-rok speaks to suspect Im Yun-hui about her sentencing and trial.

This appears as ‘Cheongwon Prison’ in which Jang Hwa-sa (Kim Hae-sook) is incarcerated in Room No. 9/Room 9 (나인룸) (tvN, 2018) – as seen in episode 1 and 2.

Seen in episode 1 of Player/The Player (플레이어) (OCN, 2018), when President Chun is released from prison.

This is the prison Han Kang-Ho (Yoon Si-Yoon) walks in and out as a convict in episode 1-2 of Your Honor/Dear Judge (친애하는 판사님께) (SBS, 2018).

This is the prison, in which Chae Do-Jin’s (Chang Ki-Yong) father, the serial killer Yoon Hee-Jae (Heo Jun-Ho) is incarcerated — as seen in episode 6 of Come and Hug Me (이리와 안아줘) (MBC, 2018).

Ha Myung-Woo (Im Tae-Kyung) gets released from this prison in episode 5 of Misty (미스티) (JTBC, 2018).

Surgeon Kang In-kyu (Go Kyung-pyo) applies for a job and subsequently works at this prison in Cross (크로스) (tvN, 2018). As the drama progresses, it becomes clearer that the motive for In-kyu to work there is to take revenge on prisoner Kim Hyung-bum (Heo Sung-tae), who had murdered his father 15 years ago.

This prison also appears as ‘Seobu Penitentiary’ in Prison Playbook/Wise Prison Life/Smart Prison Living (슬기로운 감빵생활) (tvN, 2017-2018), where star baseball player Kim Je-hyuk (Park Hae-soo) is put behind bars.

The prison also appeared in the drama Defendant (피고인) (SBS, 2017).
