Yeongcheon Drainage Gate [영천배수갑문]

Criminal Minds (2017)

In episodes 13-14 of Criminal Minds (크리미널 마인드) (tvN, 2017), this was one of the locations – known as the Cheonju Dam in Cheonju-si, Gyungnam – that was central to the Nadeul River case, which Kim Hyun-jun (Lee Joon-gi) and Ha Sun-woo (Moon Chae-won) were linked to as teenagers. In the 90s, this was one of the hangout spots of young Sun-woo (Jeong Ye-in of Kpop group Lovelyz) and her friend, Mo Ji-eun (Park Si-eun). In the present day, it was in the surrounding forest that the decayed body of one of Hyun-jun’s contemporaries was found, leading to his arrest.
