Do Min-ik (Kim Young-kwang) gets out of his car and leaves his driver behind in front of this building to run to his dinner appointment with his blind-date at Kingdom Hotel in episode 6 (already seen at the beginning of episode 5) of The Secret Life of My Secretary/I Loved You From The Beginning/How to Train My Blind Boss (초면에 사랑합니다) (SBS, 2019).

Yeo Jin (Mina of AOA) works at a book fair where her company is represented in front of this library in episode 1 of web-drama Wind-Bell / Punggyeong Scenery (풍경) (Naver TV, 2018).

The rooftop garden of this library appears as the rooftop of the department store that Choi Ae-Ra (Kim Ji-Won) works at in KBS2 Fight For My Way/Third-Rate My Way (쌈 마이웨이) (2017). Choi Ae-Ra calls her boyfriend from here in episode 1 and in episode 3 Ko Dong-Man (Park Seo-Joon) consoles Ae-Ra who just lost her announcer job at the store. “Why are you turning your back to me?,” she asks. “This is a fort,” he answers and: “My back is ridiculously wide. No one can see you.” And she allows herself to cry.

Kim Bo-ra (Sung Yoo-ri) and Han Deuk-gu (Hyun Bin) pass by this library when he walks her home in episode 13 of The Snow Queen (눈의 여왕) (KBS2, 2006-07).

Han Gi-ju (Park Shin-yang) asks Gang Tae-young (Kim Jung-eun) to meet in front of this building in episode 3 of Lovers in Paris (파리의 연인) (SBS, 2004); even if she told him that he can wait in vein, she shows up.
