This hotel appears as the soon-to-be-opened Sokcho Branch of Donghwa Hotels where Cha Soo-hyun (Song Hye-kyo) stays in episode 3 of Encounter/Boyfriend (남자친구) (tvN, 2018-19) and meets Kim Jin-hyeok (Park Bo-gum) when discovering the Sokcho Coastal Trail where he came to take photos. In episode 8, Jin-hyeok is sent down here to work at the reception only to get fetched by Nam Myung-sik (Ko Chang-seok) so that he can attend the Donghwa New Year’s Masquerade Ball.
Lotte Resort Sokcho [롯데리조트속초] is a four star hotel that sits right at South Korea’s east coast in Sokcho’s neighborhood Daepo [Daepo-dong/대포동]. The on a sort of half island. The hotel sits on a headland that can be explored via the Sokcho Coastal Trail [속초 외옹치 해안 탐방로]. The Daepohang Port Light House, Sokcho [대포항 등대] is located quite close to this hotel (about 30-45 min walk on foot) and certainly one of the attraction points of this area.
