Yoon Ji-ho (Jung So-min) is alumnus of this university in Because This Is My First Life/This Life Is Our First (이번 생은 처음이라) (tvN, 2017). We see her at the university’s gate in flashbacks in episode 4, and in photos in episode 5.
MoA – Museum of Art, Seoul National University [서울대학교미술관]
This museum appears as Choi Mi-Yeon’s (Yu In-Young) gallery where Byeon Ji-Sook (Soo-Ae) is placed to work after her marriage with Choi Min-woo (Ju Ji-hoon) in Mask (가면) (SBS, 2015). In episode 6, just after Ji-Sook’s brother came here, Min-woo also visits the place, finding Ji-Sook cleaning the toilets and commands her to stop immediately working here.
Kim Chul-soo (Yoo Ji-tae) is allowed by Lee Ma-ri’s (Choi Ji-woo) agency to see her from a distance — after asking whom he’d be ghostwriting for — in episode 1 of Star’s Lover/Celebrity Sweetheart/Celebrity Lover (스타의 연인) (SBS, 2009) at a dinner party that takes place. It’s also his first face to face encounter with her that happens here when he is about to leave the building.
Seoul National University (SNU) [서울대학교] is considered South Korea’s most prestigious university.
The MoA [서울대학교미술관] is Seoul National University’s art museum and in its kind the first to be dedicated to modern and contemporary art in South Korea. The building was designed by Rem Koolhaas and sits on the university’s campus not far away from the entry portal. In 2009, Star’s Lover was the first drama to be allowed to film on the premises of SNU.
SNU’s campus is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Sillim [Sillim-dong/신림동] in the Gwanak District [Gwanak-gu/관악구].
