Do Min-ik (Kim Young-kwang) and Jung Gal-hee (Jin Ki-joo) walk down this street when a sudden rainfall makes them take refuge close to a tractor stationed at the end of this street in episode 14 (full episode 7) of The Secret Life of My Secretary/I Loved You From The Beginning/How to Train My Blind Boss (초면에 사랑합니다) (SBS, 2019). Being very close, Gal-hee’s face suddenly becomes recognizable to Min-ik. After Gal-hee has left, Min-ik calls Veronica Park (Kim Jae-kyung) to meet up at night and proposes this same place. But without him still knowing, it is of course Gal-hee who picks up the phone and comes to the rendezvous. Heart-broken Min-ik comes back here in episode 17, followed by Gal-hee in who he sees an ahjumma that gives him a snack to eat.
