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

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.
