U Retreat [유리트리트]
“Skunk” Hwang Dae-myung (Joo Won) and Lee Chun-Ja (Choi Hwa-Jung) talk about her past at the pool side rooftop of this luxury house in epiosode 3 of Stealer/Stealer: The Treasure Keeper (스틸러: 일곱 개의 조선통보) (tvN, 2023). Although Lee Chun-Ja has become very rich, she vows not to buy artifects from thiefs, but steals from them instead.
This location is featured prominently in the latter half of episode 4 (38:30) of Monthly Magazine Home/Monthly House (월간 집) (JTBC, 2021). Ja Sung (Kim Ji Suk), Young Won (Jung So Min) and Shin Gyeom (Jung Gun Joo) spend the day to photograph and document one of the “cabins” to promote the retreat. To the wonder of his colleagues, Ja Sung activates the bedroom, which magically lowers down from the ceiling over the living room (39:18).
It is at this retreat that Veronica Park (Kim Jae-kyung) waits for Ki Dae-joo (Koo Ja-sung) in episode 20 (full episode 10) of The Secret Life of My Secretary/I Loved You From The Beginning/How to Train My Blind Boss (초면에 사랑합니다) (SBS, 2019) to spend a nice evening together; but he calls in to cancel the appointment.
This retreat appears as Jo Se-hwang’s (Kim Kang-woo) mansion in Item (아이템) (MBC, 2019) — as seen, for instance, in episode 2.
This appears as the ‘Guesthouse & Hostel Boulanger’ in episode 15 of Eulachacha Waikiki/Laughter in Waikiki/Welcome to Waikiki (으라차차 와이키키) (JTBC, 2018) which the Waikiki team rents for an MT.
The birthday pool party of Han Kang-ho’s (Yoon Si-yoon) high school friend takes place here in episode 5 of Your Honor/Dear Judge (친애하는 판사님께) (SBS, 2018) and he also invites Joo-eun (Kwon Na-ra) so that they can make up.
This swimming pool of this retreat appears as the one at Kim Jung-hye’s (Lee Yo-won) mansion in which Lee Soo-Gyum (Jun of U-KISS) takes a swim in episode 1 of Avengers Social Club (부암동 복수자들) (tvN, 2017), when Jung-hye comes home.
Our friends come to this retreat for a day in episode 6 of Entourage (안투라지) (tvN, 2016) and this is where Cha Young-bin (Seo Kang-joon) and Ahn So-hee (Ahn So-hee) end up kissing in the pool at night.
