Taxi Driver (2021); Sisyphus: The Myth (2021); Legal High (2019); Touch Your Heart (2019); The Beauty Inside (2018); Devilish Joy (2018); Beating Again (2015); I Need Romance (2011)

The Rainbow Deluxe Taxi team meet Chairman Baek Sung-mi (Cha Ji-yeon) and her men on this bridge in episode 13 of Taxi Driver/Deluxe Taxi (모범택시) (SBS, 2021), to exchange the criminals with Goo Young-tae (Lee Ho-cheol).

Han Tae-sul (Cho Seung-woo) and Kang Seo-hae (Park Shin-hye) get chased down this bridge under construction in episode 4 of Sisyphus: The Myth (시지프스: the myth) (JTBC, 2021) until they reach the dead end.

Seo Jae-in (Seo Eun-su) and Min Joo-kyung (Chae Jung-an) come to the feet of this bridge to discuss a case in episode 10 of Legal High (리갈하이) (JTBC, 2019).

Seo Do-jae (Lee Min-ki) and Han Se-gye (Seo Hyun-jin) come here in their respective cars for their first secret meeting as a couple in episode 8 of The Beauty Inside / Byooti Insaideu (뷰티 인사이드) (JTBC, 2018).

When Sung Ki-joon (Hoya of Infinite) learns that his cousin Gong Ma-sung (Choi Jin-hyuk) has memory loss, he comes here for a drink in episode 12 of Devilish Joy (마성의 기쁨) (MBN/Dramax, 2018), followed by Lee Ha-im (Lee Joo-yeon). She asks him: Why here of all places?”, which he responds with: “When you visit the Han River, you must come to the food truck. Drama logic. When they are fired from a job, when they get dumped by someone, when they’re betrayed, they cry at the Han riverside. Then drink at the food truck in dramas.” Later in the episode, Ki-joon and Ha-im come back here and he confesses to her which ends with a kiss.

Lee Joon-hee (Yoon Hyun-min) and Noh Young-bae (Jung Suk-yong) meet up on the first built part of this bridge in episode 12 of Beating Again/Falling in Love with Soon Jung/Falling for Innocence (순정에 반하다) (JTBC, 2015) and Young-bae pressures Joon-hee for money in return for the evidence for the murder of Ma Dong-Wook (Jin Goo) that is in his possession.

Sunwoo In-young (Jo Yeo-jeong) and Bae Sung-hyun (Choi Jin-hyuk) come at the first built part of this bridge at a late night date in episode 8 of I Need Romance (Romaenseuga Pilyohae/로맨스가 필요해) (tvN, 2011) and while is already in love and proposes to stay over at her place, she just feels rather (only) comfortable in his presence. They are back here in episode 10 when a singing Sung-hyun tries to cheer up In-young.
