Sungui Pyeonghwa Market [숭의평화시장]

Move To Heaven (2021); The King: Eternal Monarch (2020); Search: WWW (2019)

Han Geu-roo (Tang Joon-sang) and Jo Sang-koo (Lee Je-hoon) come to this building in episode 6 of Move To Heaven/Move To Heaven: I Am a Person Who Arranges Articles Left by Deceased (무브 투 헤븐: 나는 유품정리사입니다) (Netflix, 2021) in response to a cleaning request.

In episode 3 of The King: Eternal Monarch (더킹:영원의 군주) (SBS, 2020), Tae-eul (Kim go-eun) and Shin-jae (Kim Kyun-nam) search the workshop of a murder victim — at Seokjeong-ro [석정로] corner Seokjeong-ro 76beon-gil [석정로76번길] — and when leaving, Shin-jae meets a old classmate in the lane: a local thug and his gang, who is out for revenge. Outnumbered, they prepare for a fight when Gon (Lee Minho) suddenly appears; however, he is happy to watch the police take control. Gon only gets involved when he sees the leader with a knife, and ends up whipping the entire gang with his riding crop and beating them single-handed.

Bae Ta-mi (Im Soo-jeong) comes to this building in episode 5 of Search: WWW/Type in Search Word: WWW (검색어를 입력하세요: WWW) (tvN, 2019) to track down the illegal internet search word manipulator, and ends up having to chase him down. Unbeknownst to her, Cha Hyeon (Lee Da-hee) had followed her here, and eventually hunts the guy down (quite literally) crossing the rooftop of this place — with the Incheon Football Stadium as the background.

In its heyday back in the 1970s-80s, Sungui Traditional Market/Sungui Pyeonghwa Market [숭의평화시장] or Sungui Pyeonghwa Art Market [숭의 평화 예술 시장] was ‘the first residential and commercial building market in Korea’, and considered the most active one in Incheon. However, it began to lose its draw from the 90s as new towns were developed. Today, there is still an effort to attract visitors to the building through a monthly art and cultural market [숭의평화시장 대모험].

The market —characterised by its unique triangular shape— is located in Incheon’s neighborhood Sungui [Sungui-dong/숭의동], in the Michuhol District [Michuhol-gu/미추홀구] (formerly Nam District [Nam-gu/남구]); in short walking distance to/from the Incheon Football Stadium [인천축구전용경기장].

The Search: WWW scene was filmed within the building’s premises (open area) and around the building along Seokjeong-ro 76-beongil [석정로76번길].
