She then realize that Hwa-young’s suicide note is Jin Mi-gyeong’s photo captions put together.

This ‘overpass’ can be briefly seen in episode 2 of Grid/Geurideu (그리드) (Disney+, 2022).

Gun-wook (Lee Hong-nae) meets up with his colleague Dae-ho (Park Kang-sub) here as the latter walks his dog, in episode 3 of Inspector Koo/Koo Kyung-yi (Gu Gyeong-i/구경이) (JTBC/Netflix, 2021). In episode 4, Santa (Baek Sung-chul) chases K/Song Yi-kyung (Kim Hye-jun) through this walkway.

Oh Kang-hee (Jung Soo-jung/Krystal of f(x)) and Kang Seon-ho (Jung Jin-young, formerly of B1A4) sit down at this ‘garden’ after having attended Kang-hee’s mother’s trial in episode 7 of Police University//Police Academy (Kyeongchalsueob/경찰수업) (KBS2, 2021) and have a heart-to-heart talk.

Vincenzo Cassano/Park Joo-hyeong (Song Joong-ki) walks along this overpass in episode 3 of Vincenzo (빈센조) (tvN/Netflix, 2021) when he receives a message from lawyer Hong Yu-chan (Yoo Jae-myung) who invites him over to his house for a drink.

Joo Seo-yeon (Oh Yeon-seo) and Lee Kang-woo (Ahn Jae-hyeon) come here at night on their first real date in full episode 10 of Love With Flaws (하자있는 인간들) (MBC, 2019-20).

Yoon Jae-in (Shin Ye-eun) walks down from this bridge to the roadside after leaving Seoul Station, in episode 1 of He is Psychometric/That Psychometric Guy (사이코메트리 그녀석) (tvN, 2019), and gets into her aunt’s truck.

Jang Sun-gyeol (Yoon Gyun-sang) and Gil O-sol (Kim You-jung) come here in episode 9 of Clean With Passion For Now (일단 뜨겁게 청소하라) (JTBC, 2018-19) and they both indirectly confess their love to each other. “Do you dream of love?,” she asks him reading this question from a signboard sitting in this Skygarden and he responds a little late (also reading from a signboard): “I love you very much and forever.”

When teleporting to 2017 in episode 9 of Live Up To Your Name, Dr. Heo/Deserving of the Name (명불허전) (tvN, 2017), Heo Im (Kim Nam-gil) and Choi Yeon-kyung (Kim Ah-joong) arrive here. Heo Im lands here again in final episode 16 for a last time (?) — and Yeon-kyung is right there.

Park Moo-bin (Choi Woo-shik) has a crush on Choi Ae-ra (Kim Ji-won) and decides to gift her a pair of sneakers in episode 3 of Fight For My Way/Third-Rate My Way (쌈 마이웨이) (KBS2, 2017). After some misunderstandings, they meet up in this park. He tells her to be Cinderella and try the sneakers on. But actually they are too small and she wonders if she should really force herself.

Seoullo 7017 Skygarden [서울로7017 or 서울역고가공원] is a public park located on a converted elevated highway (similar to New York City’s High Line Park) just north of Seoul Station [서울역] in Seoul’s neighborhood Bongnae-dong 2(i)-ga [봉래동2가] —overseen by the administrative neighborhood Hoehyeon [Hoehyeon-dong/회현동]— in the Jung District [Jung-gu/중구].

The name ‘Seoullo’ means ‘towards Seoul’ and ‘Seoul Street’, and 7017 is a combination of the year of the construction of the highway (1970) and its transformation into a park (2017). This walkway officially opened on May 20, 2017 and has since then been featured on many design/architecture websites.

In 2019, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism –announced through the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO)– selected Seoullo 7017 as one of the ‘100 Must-Visit Spots in Korea’ for 2019-2020.

Tip: Write a postcard to a dear friend while relaxing here.
You can get these cards at the Seoullo Shop at 2,000 won each. The shop is located at the ground level (start of Toegye-ro; look out for the Tourist Information Booth).
