Sinwon Temple [신원사]

Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter (2018)

This is where Jung Yi-hyun (Yoon Hyun-min) and Kim Geum (Seo Ji-hoon) attend a village party in episode 1 of Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter/Gyeryong Fairy Tale/Tale of Fairy (계룡선녀전) (tvN, 2018). It is here that they encounter Seon Ok-nam (Moon Chae-won) again, and Yi-hyun confronts her to ask if she’s the one they’d seen earlier in the day. Teacher Goo (Ahn Gil-sang) comes to her defence and Yi-hyun splatters ketchup over him when waving his corndog.

In final episode 16, Kim Geum and Ok-nam return here together, and are reunited with Yi-hyun, who shows up after being away for a year.
