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).

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 [서울과학기술대학교 붕어방] of this university.

The last kiss scene on the track field in episode 16 of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (역도요정 김복주) (MBC, 2016-17) took place at this university of which parts appear as ‘Haneol Sport University’. The university’s lake where Kim Bok-Joo (Lee Sung-Kyung) and Jung Joon-Hyung (Nam Joo-Hyuk) often meet is also here for instance.

This university is also the one that Hong Seol (Kim Go-Eun), her friends and Yoo Jung (Park Hae-Jin) attend in Cheese in the Trap (치즈인더트랩) (tvN, 2016). We see the Doshan Building [다산관], of course, but also 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.

  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!
