Pont Neuf [퐁뇌프]

The Package (2017)

Yoon So-so (Lee Yeon-hee) proposes to go see this bridge late at night in episode 2 of The Package (더 패키지) (JTBC, 2017) and as soon as San Ma-roo (Jung Yong-hwa of CNBLUE) accepts, she asks him to pay the special price for night visits. While on the bridge, he directly finds the place where the two lovers in the film Les Amants du Pont-Neuf stood and they chat a bit about the film and love in general.
