Jeongdongjin Beach [정동진해수욕장]

Legend of the Blue Sea (2016-17); Plus Nine Boys (2014); Hotel King (2014); Alone in Love (2006)

This is where Sim Chung (Gianna Jun) arrives in South Korea three years after she’s parted in episode 20 in Legend of the Blue Sea (푸른 바다의 전설) (SBS, 2016-17); she arrives right next to the Hourglass aka Moraeshigae Park [모래시계공원]; a major swimming spot at Jeongdongjin Beach. She lets herself deliver some clothes and gets ready to go to Seoul.

In Plus Nine Boys (아홉수 소년) (tvN, 2014), Kang Jin-Goo (Kim Young-Kwang) and Ma Se-Young (Kyung Soo-Jin) eat here at a sort of tent-restaurant in episode 3 at the beach when checking out the location for work. The tent-restaurant is situated at the middle of the beach right next to Jeongdongjin Railway Station [정동진역] — another major swimming spot here — and one needs to use an under path to get there; under path which Jin-Goo takes also to piggyback drunk Se-Young to their hotel along 강원 강릉시 강동면 정동진리 267-4 street.

Cha Jae-Wan (Lee Dong-Wook) and Ah Mo-Ne (Lee Da-Hae) also come here on a date in the rain in episode 26 of Hotel King (호텔킹) (MBC, 2014).

Also seen in Alone in Love (연애시대) (SBS, 2006).
