Song Ga-gyeong (Jeon Hye-jin) drives past with this building in the background in episode 6 of Search: WWW/Type in Search Word: WWW (검색어를 입력하세요: WWW) (tvN, 2019), while talking to her father about the battery that exploded in a KU-brand laptop.

The ‘F/W Endless Fashion Week’ in episode 9 of The Great Seducer/Tempted (위대한 유혹자) (MBC, 2018) takes place here. Kwon Shi-hyun (Woo Do-hwan) picks up Choi Soo-ji (Mun Ga-young) and Ko Kyung-joo (Jeong Ha-dam) at their university — with an awkward meeting of and leaving behind of Eun Tae-hee (Joy)– and brings the two girls here. And we also see Park Hye-jung (Oh Ha-nee) seeing an ‘angel’ (Kim Do-wan).

This venue appears as Yun Seok-yeong’s (Lee Jung-kil) foundation that he proudly show to Geum Jan-di (Goo Hye-sun) and his grandchild Yun Ji-hu in episode 23 of Boys Over Flowers/Boys Before Flowers (꽃보다 남자) (KBS2, 2009) until he receives a phone call that the said foundation is in danger and collapses.
