Let Me Be Your Knight (2021-22); Vincenzo (2021); True Beauty (2020-21); Angel's Last Mission: Love (2019); KBS Drama Special: The Expiration Date of You and Me (2018); Saimdang, the Herstory (2017); High-End Crush (2015-16); Liar Game (2014)*

The ‘Green Concert’ at which LUNA is supposed to headline takes place at this outdoor theatre in episode 4 of Let Me Be Your Knight/I’ll Be Your Night (너의 밤이 되어줄게) (SBS, 2021-22). The concert is cancelled because of the rain, but most importantly, [SPOILER] vocal leader Yoon Tae-in (Lee Jun-young/Jun of U-KISS) gets lost, again.

This is the building of ‘Ragusang Art Gallery’ in episode 14 of Vincenzo (빈센조) (tvN/Netflix, 2021).

Saebom High’s festival concert is held at the outdoor theatre in episode 5 of True Beauty/Yeoshingangrim (여신강림) (tvN, 2020-21) and Im Joo-kyeong (Moon Ga-young), Choi Soo-a (Kang Min-ah), and Kang Soo-jin (Park Yoo-na) sits down to watch the performances. When the band performs a song written by the late Jeong Se-yeon (Kang Chan-hee/Chani of SF9), Joo-kyeong spots Lee Su-ho (Cha Eun-woo of ASTRO) reacting emotionally towards it, and runs over to find out how he is.

In episode 8 (full episode 4) of Angel’s Last Mission: Love/Dan, Only Love (단, 하나의 사랑) (KBS2, 2019), Lee Yeon-seo (Shin Hye-sun) and Kim Dan (Kim Myung-soo) meet up after the press conference at the outdoor theater of this venue. She wants to thank him with a kiss on the cheek but impatient Kim Dan turns his head and she then plants the kiss on his mouth; which eventually ends up in a real kiss — that Ji Kang-woo (Lee Dong-gun) sees from a distance. Right afterwards in episode 9 (full episode 5), Kim Dan pulls out of the kiss and runs away, leaving Yeon-seo being drained by the just starting rain. It is Kang-woo who leads her out of this situation under an umbrella.

This is the setting for the headquarters of talent management agency G.Choi, run by Choi Se-hoon (Jung Il-woo) and which manages artistes like Kang Min-joo (Yoon Bo-ra from SISTAR) and MONSTA X (as themselves), in High-End Crush (고품격 짝사랑) (MBN, 2015-16) — as seen from episode 2 onwards.

Also seen in KBS Drama Special: The Expiration Date of You and Me/The Time Left Between Us (너와 나의 유효기간) (KBS2, 2018); Saimdang, the Herstory/Saimdang, Light’s Diary/Saimdang, Memoir of Colors (사임당, 빛의 일기) (SBS, 2017); Liar Game (라이어 게임) (tvN, 2014).
