Jingwansa Temple [진관사]

Suits (2018); World's Within (2008); My Lovely Sam-Soon (2005)

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.

This temple was also seen in World’s Within / The World That They Live In (그들이 사는 세상) (KBS2, 2008).
