When going through Jin Hwa-young’s (Choo Ja-hyun) Skygram account in episode 2 of Little Women (Jag-eun Assideul/작은 아씨들) (tvN/Netflix, 2022), Oh In-ju (Kim Go-eun) sees a photo taken of her with this complex in the background.
This was the setting for the Singapore hotel owned by Company Director Joo (Lee Deok-hwa) in Spy Myung-wol (스파이 명월) (KBS2, 2011). It was featured most prominently in episode 1, when he brought his executives and granddaughter In-ah (Jang Hee-jin) for a tour around the premises. It is also where Kang Woo (Eric Mun of Shinhwa) puts up at, while in Singapore for his showcase concert. North Korean spy Han Myung-wol (Han Ye-seul) tracks him down at various locations of the hotel in an attempt to get an autograph for the person she works for, but he evades her.
