Shingu Botanical Garden [신구대학교식물원]

My First First Love (2019); Hwayuki (2017-18)

Seo Do-hyun (Jung Jin-young) brings Han Song-yi (Jung Chae-yeon) (who says it “feels like spring”) here in episode 15 of My First First Love/Because It’s My First Love (첫사랑은 처음이라서) (Netflix, 2019), saying that it’s one of the places he’d always wanted to bring her. It is here that he tells her of him moving to Seosan in the new year.

This garden appears as the garden of Son Oh-Gong (Lee Seung-Gi) house in Hwayuki/A Korean Odyssey (화유기) (tvN, 2017-18). Jin Sun-Mi (Oh Yeon-Seo) follows Oh-Gong here in episode 1 after she sees him for the first time as a grown-up. He teases her, telling her that she had never called him and she tells him in return that she could have done so but had decided not to do so. They come back here in episode 6 when he brings her to ‘Sureumdong’ and leads her through this garden to his house.
