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).

Seoul National University of Science and Technology [서울과학기술대학교/서울과기대] — also known as ‘Seoul Tech’ — was established in 1910 as a Vocational Supplementary School, and is now a general university in Seoul with six colleges — the fifth-largest campus in Seoul.
It spans across Seoul’s neighboring neighborhoods Gongneung [Gongneung-dong/공릉동] and Hagye [Hagye-dong/하계동] in the Nowon District [Nowon-gu/노원구]. It is not far from Sahmyook University [삼육대학교], also seen in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo.
