Parts of this park appear as the Joseon period ‘Man’woldang Inn’ or the ‘Man-wol Lodge’ in episode 15 of Hotel Del Luna (호텔 델루나) (tvN, 2019), which Koo Chan-sung (Yeo Jin-goo) enters following Mago’s (Seo Yi-sook) instructions.

Veronica Park (Kim Jae-kyung) comes here to relax and Ki Dae-joo (Koo Ja-sung) finds her here in episode 27 (full episode 14) of The Secret Life of My Secretary/I Loved You From The Beginning/How to Train My Blind Boss (초면에 사랑합니다) (SBS, 2019). Before they can finally spend some time together as a couple, Dae-joo gets a call and leaves immediately to help out Do Min-ik (Kim Young-kwang).

The crown prince Lee Hun’s/Ha Sun’s (Yeo Jin-Goo) chambers in The Crowned Clown (왕이 된 남자) (tvN, 2019) are located here — as seen for example in episodes 2 and 6 as well the Queen’s quarters, the ‘Daejojeon Palace’ — as seen, for instance, in episode 8. But also the brothel — supposed to be situated in the neighborhood Hwagye — run by Woon-Sim (Jung Hye-Young) is situated here (seen in episodes 2 and 4) as well as parts of the village nearby the palace —- as seen in episode 1.

This park appears is King Lee-do’s (Yoon Doo-joon) palace to which Jang Dan-bi (Kim Seul-gi) time-travels in Splash Splash Love (퐁당퐁당 LOVE) (MBC, 2015).

This venue appears as part of the palace in Dr. Jin (닥터 진) (MBC, 2012) — as seen, for instance, during the coronation day in episode 17.

Park Hae-young (Song Seung-heon) and Lee Sul (Kim Tae-Hee) meet first at this park in episode 1 of My Princess (마이 프린세스) (MBC, 2011), when she works part-time at this park as “Korean princess photo model and Hae-young convinces her to lengthen her work day so that Princess Stella can take a commemorative photo.

  1. Happy New Year + Joseon Exorcist

    Hi, Lr here, and Happy New Year!

    “Joseon Exorcist” shot here: at least one location was used, the enclosed open field (used in Queen Seondeok, Splash Splash Love, & Daechwita MV) where an exorcism ceremony is performed, as shown in the teaser trailer (https://youtu.be/ZO39SUqk6hU)

  2. Extraordinary You & King Maker

    Lr here:

    1. “Extraordinary You” briefly used some areas during the “Trumpet Flower” manhwa arc (regarding Haru, Eun Dan-oh, Baek Gyeong, as well as Dried Squid Fairy’s past)

    2. “King Maker: The Change of Destiny / Wind and Cloud and Rain” was mainly shot here.

    2 things of note regarding “King Maker” :

    1. The wedding of Gojong & Min Ja-yeong (the future Empress Myeongseong) takes place in the park’s palace area; in history, the event was held at Unhyeon’gung Palace (운현궁), and one of their regular programmes is the reenactment of the ceremony

    2. Regarding my earlier claim of this park being used in “Hotel del Luna”: during this scene (https://youtu.be/KsHFTpNwusw; cameo by real life couple comedienne Hong Hyeon-hee & Jason), as well as the bts shown in the program “My Wife’s Taste” (i.e. https://youtu.be/CZ7tqhIFCT0), the location is the same one used for the Man’woldang Inn (the Joseon-era del Luna) in episode 15

  3. Mystic pop up bar and Daechwita definitely!

  4. Hotel del Luna???

    Hi, LR here

    Not really sure but I have an inkling “Hotel del Luna” might have used this location in some of Man-wol’s flashback scenes.

    My only sure evidence is that the location of the scene where Man-wol’s band is being executed is the same as in the “Daechwita” MV as well as the drama “Flower in Prison”.

    1. Hi LR, Many thanks for this. Let’s see if someone can verify it!

  5. Stray Kids

    Lr here

    …so apparently Stray Kids’ “Double Knot (English Ver.)” Performance Video was also shot here…

  6. Mystic Pop-up Bar & AGUST D

    Hi this is Lr

    1. the Joseon flashback of “Mystic Pop-Up Bar” (쌍갑포차) episode 1 were filmed here
    (cameos by Park Si-eun, Park Eun-hye, Seon Geon-hee, & Kim Hee-jung)

    2. Agust D (Suga of BTS)’s new MV “Daechwita” (大吹打) was filmed here + cameos from Jin & Jungkook

  7. The King: Eternal Monarch

    Hi this is Lr

    Some scenes from episode 1 of “The King: Eternal Monarch” are shot here, to represent the main palace (located at Busan) of the Kingdom of Corea.

    In particular:
    -the eunuch commencing the mourning ceremony rites from the palace rooftop (shouting “sang’wibok” and flapping the deceased monarch’s upper garment 3 times)
    -Yi Gon’s coronation ceremony
    -Yi Gon’s public mourning for his deceased father (cameo by Kwon Yul, who interestingly shot in this location during “Haechi”)
