Sowol-ro Staircase #4 [소월로 계단 4번]
Han Song-yi (Jung Chae-yeon) is surprised here by Yoon Tae-oh (Ji Soo), who had returned from Jebu Island after spending time with his mother, in episode 15 of My First First Love/Because It’s My First Love (첫사랑은 처음이라서) (Netflix, 2019). As she asks him about how things went, Tae-oh asks her to head elsewhere for the catch up, as he was feeling cold.
This staircase [소월로20길 계단] connects Sowol-ro [소월로/素月路] with Sowol-ro 20-gil [소월로20길] in Seoul’s neighborhood Yongsan-dong 2(i)ga [용산동2가] in the Yongsan District [Yongsan-gu/용산구]; located next to the Yongsan-2-ga-dong Community Center [용산2가동 주민센터].
Heading up to the main road [소월로] via this staircase leads to Bus Stop Bosung Girls’ Middle & High School Entrance [보성여중고입구 정류장] on the right, which was briefly seen in My First First Love. Walk a little further against the flow of traffic down the main road, and you will reach Sowol-ro Staircase #3 [소월로 계단 3번].
