In the frenzy of escaping a female ghost, Goo Chan-sung (Yeo Jin-goo) dashes up and down this street in episode 1 of Hotel Del Luna (호텔 델루나) (tvN, 2019), before taking cover amongst some discarded items. A cheeky Jang Man-wol (IU/Lee Ji-eun), looks over a building’s wall down at a hiding Chan-sung, startles him by throwing a pebble and setting him off running again.
