Kim Shin (Gong Yoo), the Goblin, launches a flying lantern here in episode 8 of Goblin/Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (쓸쓸하고 찬란하神 – 도깨비) (tvN, 2016-17) – in memories of his sister. This has direct repercussions on the Grim Reaper (Lee Dong-Wook) — the Goblins’ sister’s ex-lover — who clutches his heart from severe pain while talking to Sunny (Yoo In-Na) in front of the Madang Flower Shop at the same time. In episode 12, Kim Shin and the Grim Reaper meet up here and have a face-off. In episode 13, helpless and burdened Shin is back at this temple asking himself what to do.
This is also the temple where Cha Dae Woong (Lee Seung Ki) finds himself after he has escaped his grandfather in episode 1 of My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho/My Girlfriend Is a Nine-Tailed Fox (내 여자친구는 구미호) (SBS, 2010) and where he meets Gu Mi-ho (Shin Min Ah) for the first time.
