Kang Seo-hae (Park Shin-hye) walks through this park in episode 5 of Sisyphus: The Myth (시지프스: the myth) (JTBC, 2021) and is close to being disgusted by the happiness of people and she thinks to themselves how they can be so happy if their end is near?
This park (Tri-Bowl side) is briefly featured in ‘Love Virtually / Augmented Bean Pod’ (증강 콩깍지), episode 7 of SF8 (에스 에프 에잇) (MBC, 2020).
The Strolling Garden Bridge [스트롤링가든브릿지] in this park sits on Lee Yeon-seo (Shin Hye-sun) way to the Fantasia Concert Hall in Angel’s Last Mission: Love/Dan, Only Love (단, 하나의 사랑) (KBS2, 2019). She comes here with Kim Dan (Kim Myung-soo/L of Infinite) to practice walking in episode 6 and is back here in episode 7 crossing this bridge alone and with a lot of will power.
The Tri-Bowl side of the park can be clearly seen in the car/bike chase between Nam Shin III (Seo Kang-joon) and Seo Jong-gil’s agent (Choi Byung-mo) as they cross a bridge in episode 19 of Are You Human?/Are You Human Too (너도 인간이니?) (KBS2, 2018).

Son Oh-gong (Lee Seung-Gi) comes here regularly (nearly in every episode) to eat ice cream, and this is also where PK’s (Lee Hong-Ki) fans wait faithfully for him here, as this is his hang-out. At the end of episode 2, Jin Sun-mi (Oh Yeon-seo) comes here to attract black devils so that she can call out Oh-gong’s name and free him from his Joseon village prison.
Kim Eun-joong (Kim Tae-hoon) calls police officer Lee Soon-ae (Kim Sun-young) from here in episode 7 of Lookout (파수꾼) (MBC, 2017) because he has important information on a case.

Oh Soo (Lee Jae-woo), Oh Young’s (Song Hye-kyo) elder brother, meets up here with gambler Oh Soo (Zo In-sung) and his associate Park Jin-sung (Kim Bum) and tells them that his father is CEO of PL Company in episode 1 of That Winter, The Wind Blows (그 겨울, 바람이 분다) (SBS, 2013), but nobody takes him seriously until he dies in a car accident.

Songdo Central Park [송도센트럴공원], opened in August 2009, is a public park located in Incheon’s Songdo International Business District [Songdo IBD] (송도) in the Yeonsu District [Yeonsu-gu/연수구], inspired by New York City’s Central Park.
The Tri-Bowl Cultural Center [트라이볼] is situated at the one end of the park and it is framed by the NEAT Tower [동북아무역타워] on the other. Crosswalk at Party Parana [파티파라나] is also very close to this park.
In 2019, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism –announced through the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO)– selected Songdo Central Park as one of the ‘100 Must-Visit Spots in Korea’ for 2019-2020.
Please note: The LED rose garden seen in Hwayuki does not exist in reality. It was created specially for the show.
