Miwon Building [미원빌딩]

Undercover (2021); Kkondae Intern (2020); Introverted Boss (2017); The Sound of Your Heart (2016-17); Dr. Jin (2012)

Chu Dong-woo (Choi Dae-chul) has lunch at the rooftop of this building in episode 8 of Undercover (Eondeokeobeo/언더커버) (JTBC, 2021) and thinks back to a conversation he had here with Choi Yeon-soo (Kim Hyun-joo) about their goals in their work.

This is seen as the rooftop of Joonsoo Food’s office building, which Ka Yeol-chan (Park Hae-jin) frequents when he needs to clear his mind in Kkondae Intern/Old School Intern (꼰대인턴) (MBC, 2020). It is also where he has conversations with senior intern Lee Man-sik (Kim Eung-soo), as in episode 3 (full episode 2) and 12 (full episode 6).

The rooftop of this building appears as the public relations company ‘Brain’ in Introverted Boss/My Shy Boss/Sensitive Boss (내성적인 보스) (tvN, 2017). CEO Eun Hwan-ki (Yeon Woo-jin) comes here to apologize to a former employee that committed suicide from here in episode 2. Her sister, Chae Ro-woon (Park Hye-soo), who also works at Brain, comes here to mourn at the same time. He’s shocked by her presence — having a crush on her — and nearly falls off the roof.

Also seen in episode 3 of The Sound of Your Heart/Sound of Heart (마음의 소리) (KBS2/Netflix, 2016-17); Dr. Jin (닥터진) (MBC, 2012 — Source).
