The office rented by Chairwoman Park Hoo-ja (Kim Min-jeong) for Yang Jung-guk (Choi Si-won) to run his sham campaign in My Fellow Citizens!/Fellow Citizens (국민 여러분!) (KBS2, 2019), overlooks this building “as inspiration”, Hoo-ja says, for Jung-guk to reach his (forced) goal of becoming an assemblyman. In episode 25, he finally makes it to the actual building — as a true blue assemblyman.

When Koo Dae-young (Kim Sung-kyun) briefly presents the network of people involved in father Lee’s (Jeong Dong-hwan) death and their background in episode 14 of The Fiery Priest/Hot Blooded Priest (열혈사제) (SBS, 2019), Congressman Park Won-moo (Han Ki-joong) is seen striking in front of this building.

This building is seen in the background when Kong Hyuk-joon (Oh Eui-sik) brings Oh Yoon-seo (Yoo In-na) to work in episode 5 of Touch Your Heart/Reach of Sincerity (진심이 닿다) (tvN, 2019).

Chief Prosecutor’s Yoon Seung-Ro’s (Choi Moo-Sung) hearing is held here in episodes 24-28 of Lookout (MBC, 2017).

We see protesters against cold cases in front of this building in episode 2 of Signal (시그널) (tvN, 2016) that confront Kim Bum-Joo (Jang Hyun-Sung).

Jo Gook (Cha Seung-won) passes by this building in episode 17 of The City Hall (시티홀) (SBS, 2009) while looking at it wistfully from the car window.
