The funerals of former Kang & Ham’s CEO Ham Ki-Taek’s (Kim Young-Ho) wife take place here in episode 11 of Suits (슈츠) (KBS2, 2018) and Choi Kang-Seok (Jang Dong-Gun) and Kang Ha-Yeon (Jin Hee-Kyung) come here to test the waters if he wants to get back into the company.
This is where everyone goes to commemorate Hyun Jin-Heon’s (Hyun Bin) brother’s death anniversary in episode 9 of My Name is Kim Sam-Soon/My Lovely Sam Soon (내 이름은 김삼순) (MBC, 2005). It’s an awkward situation for Kim Sam-Soon (Kim Sun-Ah) and Jin-Heon because they just had broken up.
