This appears as the courthouse in final episode 16 of The Golden Spoon (Geumsujeo/금수저) (MBC, 2022).

This appears as a courthouse where Cheon Ji-hoon (Namgoong Min) and Baek Ma-ri (Kim Ji-eun) are seen greeting each other outside the building before they go in for the trial they are representing in episode 1 of One Dollar Lawyer (천원짜리 변호사) (SBS, 2022).

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).

  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.
