This is the old building of Gimyujeong Station [김유정역 폐역], a train station along the Gyeongchun Line [경춘선] located in the village of Jeung-ri [증리] in Chuncheon’s Sindong Township; just next to its present-day station’s neighbor, the Gimyujeong Station [김유정역].

At its establishment in 1939, it was known as Sinnam Station after the original name of the township. In 2004, the station was renamed to commemorate the late celebrated novelist Kim Yu-jeong (김유정, 1908-1937), who is known as ‘an icon of Chuncheon’. This was also the first time a station in South Korea was named after a person.

After the upgraded Gyeongchun Line started to function, this building was decommissioned as a train station. However, the building continues to be preserved for historical and archival purposes. The mailbox seen in Oh My Ladylord is a real feature of this station. One posted, the letter will be send a year later to the sender.

The currently functioning station, which is around 260m away, is the station to get off at if you’re heading to Gangchon Rail Park [강촌레일파크] or café boon docks [분덕스].
