My Roommate Is A Gumiho (2021); Touch Your Heart (2019); Hide and Seek (2018); Feel Good To Die (2018); Cross (2018)

No. 82 – Shin Woo-yeo (Jang Ki-yong) walks down this street after picking up a pizza for Lee Dam (Hyeri from Girl’s Day) in episode 2 of My Roommate Is A Gumiho/Frightening Cohabitation (간 떨어지는 동거) (tvN, 2021). Dam calls him while he’s en route, and tries to stall him while trying to solve the bathroom issue. In episode 7, Woo-yeo spots Dam walking alone on this dark street, with someone tailing her from behind.

No. 76/78 – After a semi-heartbreaking dinner, Choi Yoon-hyuk (Shim Hyung-tak) and a tipsy Dan Moon-hee (Park Kyung-hye) walk down this street in episode 13 of Touch Your Heart/Reach of Sincerity (진심이 닿다) (tvN, 2019). A deliveryman (cameo by Song Kang) almost knocks into them, but Yoon-hyuk pulls Moon-hee away — and it is there that she moves his heart. Alas, Moon-hee gets over such disappointment quickly, and almost immediately falls in love with the deliveryman — much to Yoon-hyuk’s shock.

No. 81 – After team leader Baek Jin-sang (Kang Ji-hwan) blacks out at a company dinner, Lee Ru-da (Baek Jin-hee) and Kang Joon-ho (Gong Myung) carry him out onto this street in episode 1/2 of Feel Good To Die/Happy If You Died (죽어도 좋아) (KBS2, 2018). After he vomits on Ru-da’s pants, he drunkenly staggers out onto the main road and has a close call. Later, he gets knocked down by a truck, in front of Ru-da.

As he enters this street, Jo Pil-doo (Lee Won-jong) flinches instinctively as he’s approached from behind by 2 men in episode 26 of Hide and Seek (숨바꼭질) (MBC, 2018) — but it turns out that they’re there to meet someone else.

No. 81 – The police stake-out team led by Team Leader Jang follows Kim Chul-ho (Jung Eun-pyo) into this street in episode 10 of Cross (크로스) (tvN, 2018). Kang In-kyu (Go Kyung-pyo) arrives not long after and manages to trail the group as they are heading in.
