Part of this campus appear as the ‘University of Oxford’ at which Koo Joon-hwi (Kim Jae-young) studies in episode 8 (full episode 4) of Beautiful Love, Wonderful Life (사랑은 뷰티블 인생은 원더풀) (KBS2, 2019) and where he receives a letter of his late brother Koo Joon-gyeom (Jin Ho-eun).

This building appears as the main court in Legal High (리갈하이) (JTBC, 2019).

When looking up videos of Oh Yoon-seo/Oh Jin-shim (Yoo In-na) in episode 9 of Touch Your Heart/Reach of Sincerity (진심이 닿다) (tvN, 2019), Kwon Jung-rok (Lee Dong-wook) watches one where she walks up the stairs of this building to attend an award ceremony — the same footage was shown in episode 1.

The lower part of this building –it is digitally rendered and combined with the upper part of the German Reichstag building– also appears as the ‘Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin’ that young Woo Seo-ri (Park Si-eun) attends in Berlin when she thinks back to her career as a violinist in episode 5 of Still 17 / Thirty But Seventeen / 30 But 17 (서른이지만 열일곱입니다) (SBS, 2018).

Kyung Hee University [경희대학교 서울캠퍼스/경희대학교 국제캠퍼스], founded in 1949, is a private university with four campuses (Seoul, Yongin, Hongneung and Gwangneung). It ensures education from kindergarten to post-graduate level. The Yongin campus of Kang Hee University is the university’s second campus — followed by the one in Seoul–, established in 1979. It is located in Yongin’s neighborhood Hagal [Hagal-dong/하갈동] in the Giheung District [Giheung-gu/기흥구]. The building seen in K-Dramaland so far is the Yongin campus’s library [중앙도서관(대학본부)] and the ‘Square of Contemplation’ [사색의 광장] located just in front of it and the Open-Air Theater [경희대학교국제캠퍼스노천극장].

  1. question

    is the school open to public? can a tourist visit the school on regular days?

    1. Hi Xia, usually the campus of a university is open to public; buildings however are often only accessible for staff. But, of course, I cannot guarantee anything. Thom Musni has been visiting and he didn’t mention any difficulties doing so, though.
