Kim Bon (So Ji-sub) and his former NIS colleague Yoo Ji-yeon (Im Se-mi) meet up in front of this building in episode 7 of Terius Behind Me (내 뒤에 테리우스) (MBC, 2018).

Choi Kang-seok (Jang Dong-gun) passes by this building when fetching Go Yun-woo (Park Hyung-sik) from prison upon his release in episode 16 of Suits (슈츠) (KBS2, 2018).

Lee Ji-an (Lee Ji-eun, also known as the singer IU) stands on the sidewalk outside this building in episode 3 of My Mister/My Ajusshi (나의 아저씨) (tvN, 2018). She stares into space for a time, after Park Dong-hoon (Lee Sun-kyun) rejects her text message request to buy her dinner.

Louis (Seo In-guk) sleeps on the stairs that lead to the Sejong Center in episode 2 of Shopping King Louis/Shopping King Louie (쇼핑왕 루이) (MBC, 2016) after he lost his memory; it’s also the place where Ko Bok-sil (Nam Ji-hyun) finds him.

The awards show at which Dok Ko-jin (Cha Seung-won) is nominated for his film ‘Figther’ in episode 10 of The Greatest Love/Best Love (최고의 사랑) (MBC, 2011) is introduced with footage from the real life ‘Korea Film Awards’ that took place at this venue.

The ‘SBC 207 Drama Awards’ in episode 1 of On Air (온에어) (SBS, 2008) take place here at which Oh Seung-ah (Kim Ha-neul) rejects her award.

The stairs that lead to this center are pivotal in Yoo Min-woo’s (Song Seung-Heon) and Shim Hye-won’s (Son Ye-jin) love-line in Summer Scent (여름향기) (KBS2, 2003). This is, for instance, where both reunite in final episode 16.
