Le Meridien Seoul [르 메르디앙 서울]

Jugglers (2017-18); Jealousy Incarnate (2016)

In episode 1 of Jugglers (저글러스) (KBS2, 2017-2018), Jwa Yun-i (Baek Jin-hee) and Nam Chi-won (Choi Daniel) have separate appointments at this hotel. While in the middle of meeting a client, Yun-i was unceremoniously dragged out of the restaurant she was at by her then-boss’ wife, who suspected her of having an affair with him. In episode 7, this was the location of the Best Boss Award ceremony, and where Chi-won met with Yun-i’s mother after she found out that he’s Yun-i’s boss.

This building — when it was still The Ritz-Carlton Seoul — appears as The L-State in Jealousy Incarnate (질투의 화신) (SBS, 2016), belonging to Ko Jung-won’s (Go Kyung-pyo) family. This is where his mother stays, where she celebrated her wedding day alone in episode 9, and where we see her get out of the hotel in episode 13. This is also where Pyo Na-ri (Gong Hyo-jin) has a blind date in episode 15 and both Jung-won and Lee Hwa-shin (Cho Jung-seok) get jealous – ending with Hwa-shin being thrown out of the hotel.

Formerly known as The Ritz-Carlton Seoul, this hotel – located in Gangnam – reopened in September 2017 as Le Meridien Seoul [르 메르디앙 서울].  Some of the hotel’s restaurants and facilities that have been featured include Elements Restaurant,  LAB XXIV [랩24]) (which appears have relocated here from its previous location in Cheongdam-dong), M Contemporary, and the Davinci Ballroom, which are all located in the same building.

Note: Jealousy Incarnate (2016) was filmed here when it was still known as The Ritz-Carlton Seoul; hence, the addition of it to this entry.
