No. 39-21 — Oh Bit-na (Yang Hye-ji) heads down this street (which connects with Dongmak-ro 15-gil [독막로15길] when she spots Nam Kyu-hyun (Kim Min-gwi) at an ice-cream shop with another lady (presumably his blind date from before) in episode 5 of Nevertheless/I Know But (알고있지만) (JTBC/Netflix, 2021).

No. 63 — The Club TOOL [클럽툴] —mainly playing house and one of the first club’s doing so in South Korea— and at which Choi Kwan-woo (Kim Jae-won) meets up with his old friends and band mates in episode 8 of Romance (Romangseu/로망스) (MBC, 2002) was located at this address (from 2001 until ca. 2009). Kwan-woo is back at this club in episode 12 and tries to drink away the hurt that Chae-won forgot —as he thinks— the promise made three years ago.

No. 90 — Do Bong-soon (Park Bo-young) and Ahn Min-hyuk (Park Hyung-sik) walk along this street on their date in episode 11 of Strong Woman Do Bong-soon (힘쎈여자 도봉순) (JTBC, 2017).

No. 91 — Kim Yun-Soo’s (Choi Ji-Woo) art academy is close to this street (at the intersection with the street leading up to Hongdae Playground, Wausan-ro 21-gil) and distressed Lee Min-Chul (Lee Byung-Hun) comes here in episode 19 of Beautiful Days (아름다운 날들) (SBS, 2001) to watch her from afar. When Yun-soo leaves the academy by bus she sees Min-chul from the bus window, asks the bus driver to stop and runs toward Min-chul who hid himself first and then appears in front of her.
