The Sharp Central Park 1 Building
[송도 더샵센트럴파크1차]

Residential Complex 102

The exterior of this complex is shown as the apartment building in which Sim Eun-ho (Hong Seung-hee) lives with her parents Sim Seong-san (Jung Hae-kyun) and Kim Ae-ran (Shin Eun-jung) in Navillera/Like A Butterfly (나빌레라) (tvN, 2021) — as seen, for instance, in episode 9 when her parents leave for work together.

Building D [D동]

Cha Hyeon/Scarlett (Lee Da-hee) meets Song Ga-gyeong (Jeon Hye-jin) at this restaurant after the confrontation with Bae Ta-mi (Im Soo-jung) in episode 3 of  Search: WWW/Type in Search Word: WWW (검색어를 입력하세요: WWW) (tvN, 2019).

The Sharp Central Park 2 Building

Cafe Bong — Songdo Branch [카페봉 송도점] (2016-2020)
Building A, #132 [A동 132호]

Kang So-bong (Gong Seung-yeon) and David (Choi Deok-moon) talk about Nam Shin III (Seo Kang-joon) and his rebellious behavior towards his mother Oh Ro-ra (Kim Sung-ryeong) at this cafe in episode 20 of Are You Human?/Are You Human Too (너도 인간이니?) (KBS2, 2018).

Crosswalk in Front of Party Parana [파티파라나]
Building B [B동]

Right here in front of Building 2 at the crosswalk in front of Party Parana, an impressively color co-ordinated Heo Joon-Jae (Lee Min-ho) meets his mother for the first time again in episode 15 and 16 of Legend of the Blue Sea (푸른 바다의 전설) (SBS, 2016-17). The legend of the Tower of Hercules lighthouse that says how “two people who part at the lighthouse will always meet again” thus comes true. “This very moment is a ‘happy ending’,” Sim Chung (Gianna Jun) — also present — says of the situation, describing it using one of her favorite words.

3CHON/3CC Coffee — Songdo Branch [삼촌커피/삼촌커피 송도점]
Building C, #110~112 [C동 110~112호]

After Tak Dong-kyung (Park Bo-young) has taken up Myul Mang’s (Seo In-guk) proposal to join hands at the end of episode 1 of Doom at Your Service/Destruction Doom (어느 날 우리 집 현관으로 멸망이 들어왔다) (tvN, 2021), they both come to this café in episode 2 to seal their promise.

This is seen as ‘Lucca The Tea’, the cafe that Seo Dal-mi (Bae Suzy) works at in episode 2 of Start-Up (스타트업) (tvN/Netflix, 2020).

On sensing that Cheon Song-yi (Jun Ji-hyun) was in danger, Do Min-joon (Kim Soo-hyun) rushed out of a police inspector’s car outside the Sharp Central Park 2 Building (Geolocation: 37.395620, 126.640467) at the beginning of episode 6 of My Love from Another Star/My Love From The Star/You Who Came From the Stars (별에서 온 그대) (SBS, 2013-14). Pursued by the officer, he runs in the rain around the corner of this cafe and vanishes outside the carpark entrance (Geolocation: 37.395570, 126.639483).

It consists of three 46 storey-high buildings (~163m each) with 729 apartments in total. These two building complexes sit along Songdo Central Park [송도센트럴공원] in Incheon’s Songdo International Business District [Songdo IBD] (송도) in the Yeonsu District [Yeonsu-gu/연수구]; not too far away from NEAT Tower.
