The Raum [더라움]

Hyena (2020); Encounter (2018-19); Why Secretary Kim (2018); Yong-Pal (2015); High Society (2015); Hyde, Jekyll & I (2015); Fated to Love You (2014); Cantabile Tomorrow (2014); King of Ambition (2013)

Donghwa’s new Year’s masquerade ball takes place at this venue in episode 8 of Encounter/Boyfriend (남자친구) (tvN, 2018-19) and this is where Kim Jin-hyuk (Park Bo-gum) and Cha Soo-Hyun (Song Hye-kyo) reunite with a kiss.

This is the location of the party that Lee Young-joon (Park Seo-joon) and Kim Mi-so (Park Min-young) attended in episode 1 of Why Secretary Kim/What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim (김비서가 왜 그럴까) (tvN, 2018). In episode 16, part of the building is the exterior of the master designer’s (special guest Lee Byung-joon) fashion design studio, where Young-joon and Mi-so had an appointment for their wedding outfit fitting. However, Mi-so had to work overtime and left Young-joon waiting; she rushed there after she was done with her work, only to find that everything had closed.

In a flashback in episode 3 of Yong-Pal/The Gang Doctor (용팔이) (SBS, 2015), we learn a little bit about Han Yeo-jin’s (Kim Tae-hee) forbidden love story when she talks about it with her brother Han Do-joon (Jo Hyun-jae).

The charity auction in episode 9 of Fated to Love You (운명처럼 널 사랑해) (MBC, 2014) takes place at this venue. All of a sudden Kim Mi-young’s (Jang Na-ra) hand-painted ‘Keddongie’ mug is brought up to be auctioned off and Lee Gun (Jang Hyuk) and Daniel (Choi Jin-hyuk) compete –in exceeding each other with offers that the others bidders have problems to understand– with Gun winning the mug in the end. This is when Mi-young leaves the auction hall and when being followed by Lee Gun, she tells him that it is hard to keep up her one-sided love and as an answer he sweeps in for a kiss.

This venue appears as parts of the hotel at which Jo Hae-woo’s (Son Ye-jin) and Oh Joon-young’s (Ha Seok-jin) post-wedding party takes place in episode 3 of Shark (상어) (KBS2, 2013). When Hae-woo takes some fresh air at the balcony of this place, Joon Yoshimura (Kim Nam-gil) joins her and when both comment the full moon, his remarks resemble those of her first love very closely. She is even more flabbergasted when he pulls her into an embrace, only to pull away just before Joon-Young arrives on the scene.

Also seen in Hyena (하이에나/Haiena) (SBS, 2020); Encounter/Boyfriend (남자친구) (tvN, 2018-19); High Society (상류사회) (SBS, 2015); Hyde, Jekyll & I (하이드 지킬, 나) (SBS, 2015); Naeil’s Cantabile/Tomorrow’s Cantabile/Cantabile Tomorrow (내일도 칸타빌레) (KBS2, 2014); King of Ambition/King of the Beast/Yawang/Queen of the Night (야왕) (SBS, 2013).
