This 1,410 m long truss bridge with half-moon structures on both sides of the bridge, is the 12th bridge built crossing this river and was built in the same time as Seongsan-ro. This 27m wide, 6-lane bridge is part of of National Highway No. 1 and National Highway No. 48 and connects Seoul’s neighborhoods Mangwon [Mangwon-dong/망원동] in the Mapo District [Mapo-gu/마포구] and Yangpyeong-dong [양평제2동] in the Yeongdeungpo District [Yeongdeungpo-gu/영등포구].

All of the K-Dramaland scenes take place at Mangwon Hangang Park [망원한강공원], on the North side of the Han River.
