Inside Station

After parting, Cha Song-joo (Kwon Sang-woo) and Han Jung-seo (Choi Ji-woo) run toward each other again and meet each other at the bottom of the elevator of this station in episode 12 of Stairway to Heaven (천국의 계단) (SBS, 2003-04).

Noksapyeong-daero Overpass [녹사평 육교]

From episode 2 onwards, people cross this overpass regularly in Itaewon Class (이태원 클라쓰) (JTBC, 2020). In episode 2, Oh Soo-a (Kwon Na-ra) walks over it when heading to Itaewon. So do Jo Yi-seo (Kim Da-mi) and Jang Geun-soo (Kim Dong-hee) in episode 3 on his scooter; and at the beginning of episode 4, Park Sae-ro-yi (Park Seo-joon) comes here. In episode 6, Sae-ro-yi and Yi-seo meet on this bridge by coincidence (he is out for an evening jog and she was just thrown out by her mother).

Noksapyeong (Yongsan-gu Office) Station [녹사평(용산구청)역] –formerly Noksapyeong Station [녹사평역/綠莎坪驛]—, opened in 2000, is a subway station that serves Seoul Subway Line 6. It carries the number 629 and is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Yongsan 2 ga-dong [용산 2가동] in the Yongsan District [Yongsan-gu/용산구]. This station has five underground levels and its “beautifully domed roof allows plenty of natural light into the station,” which made CNN Travel choose this as one of Seoul’s six coolest subway stations.
