Nodeulseom [노들섬]

Bride of the Water God 2017 (2017); Strongest Deliveryman (2017); Healer (2014-15); Lovers in Paris (2004)

Jo Ji-ah (Chae Soo-bin) — as President Jo — meets here for the first time with Kim Min-kyu (Yoo Seung-ho) on episode 1 of I’m Not A Robot (로봇이 아니야) (MBC, 2017-18) to sell him the limited edition action figure ‘Metal Gear Gunner’. But he refuses to pay because the packaging is not intact.

Yoon So-ah (Shin Se-kyung ) understands on this island in episode 16 of Bride of the Water God 2017/The Bride of Habaek (하백의 신부 2017) (tvN, 2017) that her father didn’t leave her but tried to save her and now lies dead on the ground of Han River. She’s devastated. A little later she is back here with Ha-baek (Nam Joo-hyuk) and he excuses himself for not being able to help and kisses her while transmitting his powers to her; powers that he desperately needs to join the Realm of the Gods to become king and without which he dies. Moo-ra (Krystal Jung), Bi-ryum (Gong Myung) and Joo-dong (Yang Dong-geun) can only watch powerless.

It is on this island that Choi Gang-soo (Go Kyung-pyo) calls for a meet-up of all his friends that he met through his delivery jobs to ask them helping him find the culprit behind the car race in episode 4 and 5 of Strongest Deliveryman (최강 배달꾼) (KBS2, 2017).

In Healer (힐러) (KBS2, 2014-15), this is Seo Jung-hoo’s (Ji Chang-wook) and Kang Dae-young (Tae-mi) meeting place. They meet here for a delivery in episode 2 (he wants her to submit Chae Young-shin’s (Park Min-young) nail samples for a DNA test) and again in episode 13 and 19.

Heartbroken Yu Soo-hyeok (Lee Dong-gun) comes here in episode 6 of Lovers in Paris (파리의 연인) (SBS, 2004).
