Palpan-gil [팔판길]

Be Melodramatic (2019); Hotel del Luna (2019)

Eun-jung (Jeon Yeo-bin) walks along this street, reminiscing how she and her late boyfriend Hong-dae (Han Joon-woo) used to stroll around the place to find the best location for his new restaurant, in episode 9 of Be Melodramatic/Melo Suits Me (멜로가 체질) (JTBC, 2019).

Goo Chan-sung (Yeo Jin-goo) runs frantically down this street in episode 1 of Hotel Del Luna (호텔 델루나) (tvN, 2019), as he’s being chased by a female ghost with no eyes.

Palpan-gil [팔판길] is the main street that traverses Seoul’s neighborhood Palpan [Palpan-dong/팔판길] —administered by the neighborhood Samcheong [Samcheong-dong/삼청동] — in the Jongno District [Jongno-gu/종로구]. This street runs parallel to Samcheong-ro [삼청로] and can be considered its calmer and more relaxed counter-part. Its small cafés and restaurants, designer boutiques and handicraft shops invite to spend a moment (and also some spending money). Cafe Rosso [로쏘] is located on this street.

The scene in Be Melodramatic takes place at the heights of Studio Yoon [스튜디오윤], and the one in Hotel Del Luna at the heights of Milk.
