Sea-Side Park [씨사이드파크]

Taxi Driver (2021); Run On (2020-21); Where Stars Land (2018); Suits (2018)

In episodes 14 and 15 of Run On (런온) (JTBC/Netflix, 2020-21), Mi-joo (Shin Se-kyun) runs in a 10km charity marathon for Dan-ah’s Seomyung Company along a seaside road at this park — close to the former Kraken Park [크라켄 공원]. After being given a pair of runners by boyfriend Seon-gyeom (Im Si-wan), along with tips on running efficiently, she had practised most days and felt rather positive at the start. Unfortunately, by the time she finishes, the staff and all other participants had gone home, except for Seon-gyeom who waits for her as she finally crosses the line. Meanwhile, Dan-ah (Choi Soo-young) collapses during the marathon and is taken to the first aid tent by a concerned Yeong-hwa (Kang Tae-oh).

Also seen in episode 12 of Taxi Driver/Deluxe Taxi (모범택시) (SBS, 2021).
