Mediterium [메디테리움]

Love in Contract (2022); Yumi's Cells 2 (2022); My Roommate Is A Gumiho (2021); Navillera (2021); Run On (2020-21); Secret Forest 2 (2020); Dinner Mate (2020); The World of The Married (2020); Born Again (2020); Touch Your Heart (2019)

Choi Sang-eun (Park Min-young) does research at this place when she gets a call in episode 7 of Love in Contract (월수금화목토) (tvN, 2022).

This is seen as the headquarter building of ‘Julie Books’, where editor-in-chief Ahn Dae-yong (Jun Suk-ho) works in Yumi’s Cells 2 (Yumiui Sepodeul 2/유미의 세포들 2) (TVING, 2022); as seen in full episode 8 when Kim Yu-mi (Kim Go-eun) attends a review with him.

Lee Dam (Hyeri from Girl’s Day) once again drags a drunk Do Jae-jin (Kim Do-wan) across the street, and they both collapse on the ground just outside this building in episode 8 of My Roommate Is A Gumiho/Frightening Cohabitation (간 떨어지는 동거) (tvN, 2021). He falls on a car’s side mirror and breaks it; this turns out to be Yang Hye-sun’s (Kim Han-na) car, which Shin Woo-yeo (Jang Ki-yong) was in.

The exterior of this building appears as the one of ‘Hangang Bank’ in Navillera/Like A Butterfly (나빌레라) (tvN, 2021), where Sim Eun-ho (Hong Seung-hee) parents work — as seen, for instance, in episode 6.

Ki Seon-gyeom (Im Si-wan) stops in front of this building in episode 5 and episode 6 of Run On (런온) (JTBC/Netflix, 2020-21) and sees that the movie ‘Falsified’ that Oh Mi-joo (Shin Se-kyung) has sub-titled and they had watched together is still running.

In episode 10 of Secret Forest 2/Stranger 2 (비밀의 숲 2) (tvN, 2020), this building appears as “SearchKorea”.

This building appears as ‘2N Box’, the media company at which Woo Do-hee (Seo Ji-hye) works at in Dinner Mate/Would You Like To Have Dinner Together (저녁 같이 드실래요) (MBC, 2020) — as seen, for instance, in full episode 2.

This building is the facade of the entertainment agency ‘Yeon Entertainment’ in Touch Your Heart/Reach of Sincerity (진심이 닿다) (tvN, 2019), which is owned by Yeon Joon-seok (Lee Joon-hyuk) and which Oh Yoon-seo (Yoo In-na) belongs to. In episode 3, Yoon-seo confronts a junior actress that tries to poach Kong Hyuk-joon (Oh Eui-sik), who’s Yoon-seo’s manager, to join her instead.

Also seen in in final episode 16 of The World of The Married/A World of Married Couple (부부의 세계) (JTBC, 2020); episodes 5 and 8 in Born Again (본 어게인) (KBS2, 2020).
