The Central Park Hotel Songdo [송도센트럴파크호텔]

Mine (2021); Taxi Driver (2021); Backstreet Rookie (2020); 18 Again (2020); When I Was The Most Beautiful (2020); Home For Summer (2019); Something in the Rain (2018)

The entrance and lobby of this hotel appear as the one of the building that Han Jin-hee (Kim Hye-hwa) and her husband Jo Eun-sol (Park Jung-do) live in in Mine/Blue Diamond (Ma-in/마인) (tvN 2021), as seen, for instance, in episodes 3 and 5.

Kang Ha-na (Esom) comes here to meet Chairman Baek Sung-mi (Cha Ji-yeon) in full episode 12 of Taxi Driver/Deluxe Taxi (모범택시) (SBS, 2021), but is met instead by her secretary Goo Seok-tae (Lee Ho-cheol). Ha-na is taken aback at his resemblance to ex-convict Goo Young-tae — unaware that he is the secretary’s twin brother.

The ex-boyfriend (Heo Jung-min) of Choo Ae-Rin (Lee Mi-do) brings her to this hotel to talk in episode 8 of 18 Again (18 어게인) (JTBC, 2020). Ko Deok-jin (Kim Gang-hyun) who happened to be around by coincidence (as he was at this hotel for business), sees how Ae-rin is pestered by her ex and intervenes — much to her dismay — and lets everyone know that he is Ae-rin’s boyfriend.

Carry Jung (Hwang Seung-un) resides at this hotel upon her return to South Korea in episodes 13 and 14 of When I Was The Most Beautiful/When I Was The Prettiest (내가 가장 예뻤을때) (MBC, 2020)– its entrance, the parking garage and the corridors are seen. This is also where she summons Oh Ye-ji (Lim Soo-hyang) to plead her to leave Seo Jin (Ha Seok-Jin). Meanwhile, Jin and his brother Seo Hwan (Ji Soo) are on the way to help out Ye-ji and meet her when she leaves Carry’s hotel room. It is also at this hotel where Carry gets stabbed by Kang Ki-Seok (Kim Tae-Gyeom) in episode 14.

Joo Sang-mi (Lee Chae-young) spends a night here with her lover Oh Dae-sung (Kim Ki-li) in episode 1 of Home for Summer/Summer, Please (여름아 부탁해) (KBS1, 2019).

The Seo siblings’ father (Kim Chang-wan) sojourns here during his stay in South Korea in Something in the Rain/Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food/Pretty Sister Who Treats Me to Meals (밥 잘 사주는 예쁜 누나) (JTBC, 2018). The entrance of this hotel also appears as the entrance to the hotel at which Yoon Jin-A (Son Ye-Jin) has a blind-date at this hotel (the interior scenes were filmed at another hotel) in episode 11-12 and where she coincidently runs into her best friend Seo Kyung-Sun (Jang So-Yeon) who is about to meet her father at the same place. Kyung-sun is furious that Jin-a can do this while dating her brother and the whole situation gets very awkward.

Also seen in episode 14 of Backstreet Rookie/Convenience Store Saet-byul (편의점 샛별이) (SBS, 2020).
