The One and Only (2021-22); My Roommate Is A Gumiho (2021); Touch Your Heart (2019); Re-feel (2019); Love Playlist 3 (2018-19); Because This Is My First Life (2017); Tunnel (2017); Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo (2016-17); Cheese in the Trap (2016); Oh My Ghostess (2015); The Great Wives (2015); The Fifth Republic (2005); Kukhee (1999)

This university was where Kang Se-yeon (Gang Ye-won) and Ji Yoon-seo (Rie Young-zin) met as students, as seen in flashbacks in episode 7 and 9 of The One and Only/Only One Person (한 사람만) (JTBC, 2021-22).

This appears as the ‘Seogwa University’ campus, which Lee Dam (Hyeri from Girl’s Day) attends as a college student, in My Roommate Is A Gumiho/Frightening Cohabitation (간 떨어지는 동거) (tvN, 2021) –– as seen in episode 1.

Oh Yoon-seo (Yoo In-na) and Kwon Jung-rok (Lee Dong-wook) meet here in episode 4 of Touch Your Heart/Reach of Sincerity (진심이 닿다) (tvN, 2019) for a law tutoring session. While she imagined it to be rather romantic, it ended up being a rather dry study session.

In a flashback scene in episode 13 of Because This Is My First Life/This Life Is Our First (이번 생은 처음이라) (tvN, 2017), we see Yoon Ji-ho (Jung So-min) and Woo Soo-ji (Esom) talking about the book To Room Nineteen at the lake [붕어방] of this university.

Some of the buildings on this campus appear as ‘Hwayang University’ in Tunnel (터널) (OCN, 2017), where Shin Jae-yi (Lee Yoo-young) is a criminology professor — for example, Dasan Hall [다산관] and Building 32 in episode 7.

[SPOILER] The last kiss scene on the track field in final episode 16 of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (역도요정 김복주) (MBC, 2016-17) is located here, which partly appears as ‘Haneol Sport University’. The lake where Kim Bok-Joo (Lee Sung-Kyung) and Jung Joon-Hyung (Nam Joo-Hyuk) often meet is also here.

This university is where Hong Seol (Kim Go-Eun), her friends and Yoo Jung (Park Hae-Jin) attend in Cheese in the Trap (치즈인더트랩) (tvN, 2016). Buildings featured here are Dasan Hall [다산관], the 4th floor of the Pavilion [미래관] (this is where the vending machine is — placed here for the drama) and the Copy Room of the Student Center.

Also seen in Oh My Ghostess/Oh My Ghost (오 나의 귀신님) (tvN, 2015); The Great Wives/Great First Wives (위대한 조강지처) (MBC, 2015).

Daeryuk Hall/Continental Hall [대륙관]

This building was featured in The Fifth Republic/5th Republic (제5공화국) (MBC, 2005) and Kuk Hee/Kukhee/Gukhee/Kook Hee/Cookie (국희) (MBC, 1999).


JSA: Joint Security Area (공동경비구역 JSA) (2000) was filmed at this university’s Dasan Hall [서울과학기술대학교 다산관].


This is the setting for Seoyeon University in the Playlist webdrama universe, most notably in the Love Playlist series [as in Love Playlist 3/Love Playlist Season 3 (연애플레이리스트3/연애플레이리스트시즌3) (Playlist Original, 2018-19)] and in Re-feel (리필) (Playlist Original, 2019).

  2. Are visitors aLLOWED inside?

    Are visitors allowed to go inside the campus to take pictures despite it not being a tourist spot? Thank you.

    1. Hi there, as far as I know, usually university campus’ are open to the public. Buildings however are often only open to staff and students.
      But maybe it is better to make sure beforehand and drop them a message? Hope this helps!
