No. 62 — Jwa Yun-i (Baek Jin-hee) comes here to look for Nam Chi-won (Choi Daniel) in episode 8 of Jugglers (저글러스) (KBS2, 2017-2018), who had come to admire one of his late uncle’s murals.

No. 80-1 — Not too far away from that set of murals, a scene from Reply 1988 (응답하라 1988) (tvN, 2015-16) was also filmed on this same street. In episode 2, Deok-sun (Hye-ri from Girl’s Day) is seen dashing down this street on the way home from school. This was so she could return a denim jacket she had borrowed from her older sister (Ryu Hye-young), who had come back unexpectedly early to pack for a school trip, and was looking for it.

Restaurant Hope Meal [희망 분식]

Yoo Si-jin (Song Joong-ki) and Seo Dae-young (Jin Goo) hide behind this restaurant when they run from a group of ex-trainees in episode 6 of Descendants of the Sun/Descended From the Sun (태양의 후예) (KBS2, 2016).

This is Byeon Ji-Sook’s (Soo-Ae) family restaurant in Mask (2015).

Also filmed at this village Bad Guys (Nappeun Nyeoseokdeul/나쁜 녀석들) (OCN, 2014).

Yeolwoomul Mural Village [열우물 벽화마을] —also known as 10jeong-dong (Yeolwoomul) Mural Village [십정동(열우물) 벽화마을] and Sipjeong-dong Yeolwoomul Village [십정동 열우물 마을]— was one of Incheon’s mural villages located in the neighborhood of Sipjeong [Sipjeong-dong/십정동] in the Bupyeong District [Bupyeong-gu/부평구]. It began to be called a mural village in 2002 when young artists painted murals “throughout the narrow alleys and steep stairs” under the “Yeolwoomulgil Project (‘열우물길 프로젝트’); the most famous being the “Kim Soo-hyun Mural.” The murals were regularly renewed and an annual ‘village exhibition’ was held too. Main filming locations were Yeorumul-ro 126beon-gil [열우물로126번길] and Restaurant Hope Meal [희망 분식].

In 2018, the village was demolished to make way for the apartment complex The Sharp Bupyeong [더샵부평아파트] (June 2022 completion). It is said to be Incheon’s largest complex encompassing 5,678 households and 28 buildings each 48 floors high.
