Koo Joon-hwi (Kim Jae-young) and Kim Cheong-A (Seol In-A) say their farewells at this street before he leaves to the States for a year in full episode 16 of Beautiful Love, Wonderful Life (사랑은 뷰티블 인생은 원더풀) (KBS2, 2019).
After being turned down for a ride to school by Yoon Tae-oh (Ji Soo), Han Song-yi (Jung Chae-yeon) walks out from the house to this street in episode 4 of My First First Love/Because It’s My First Love (첫사랑은 처음이라서) (Netflix, 2019). Tae-oh zips past her in his scooter, and she watches him head off in disbelief.
Sun Ok-nam (Moon Chae-won) talks to Kim Geum (Seo Ji-hoon) on this street outside his house in episode 8 of Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter/Gyeryong Fairy Tale/Tale of Fairy (계룡선녀전) (tvN, 2018). Later, Kim Geum runs into Lee Ham-sook (Jeon Soo-jin), who’s on her way to see Yi-hyun and confess her feelings to him.
After running into Choi Ho-chul (Min Woo-hyuk) at a rice cake store, Lee Young-jae (E-som) walks with him along this street in episode 8 of The Third Charm / The 3rd Charm (제3의 매력) (JTBC, 2018). He assures her that the photoshoot pictures weren’t ‘racy’, but rather she looked ‘healthy and sexy’. That assurance put Young-jae in a good mood, which led her to giving Ho-chul an Americano treat from a food truck at the end of the street.
This is the main street in Kim Rae-wan’s (Kim Seon-ho) neighbourhood in You Drive Me Crazy! (미치겠다, 너땜에!) (MBC, 2018). Rae-wan walks up this street in episode 1 to visit the sauna, and in episode 3, a tipsy Han Eun-seong (Lee Yoo-young) walks down this street to Rae-wan’s house, singing a French song. It’s also where she loses her shoe. In episode 4, both Rae-wan and Eun-seong have a disagreement on this street, which results in them not talking for a whole year.
