Yongma Land [용마랜드]

Tell Me What You Saw (2020); Perfume (2019); Room No. 9 (2018); Angel Eyes (2014); Cruel City (2013)

This is seen as ‘Miroland’, the abandoned theme park previously run by lawyer Kim Na-hui’s late father, and where she lives — and where she also holds the young Gil Hyun-soo captive, as seen in episodes 7-8 of Tell Me What You Saw (본대로 말하라) (OCN, 2020).

In a flashback in episode 8 (full episode 4) of Perfume/Peopyoom (퍼퓸) (KBS2, 2019), Min Ye-rin (Go Won-hee) has a flashback of herself as Min Jae-hee with a young Jin-kyung (Jin-kyung) at this amusement park, when she falls from the carousel for being too heavy.

Eulji Hae-yi (Kim Hee-seon) dreams in episode 1 of Room No. 9/Room 9 (나인룸) (tvN, 2018) that she finds her boyfriend Ki Yoo-jin (Kim Young-Kwang) dead in his car that parks in front of the merry go around in this amusement park on Christmas eve (albeit that she mentions Namsan Tower as the place of their date before).

This abandoned amusement park is seen in the opening credits of Angel Eyes (엔젤아이즈) (SBS, 2014), where we see Yoon Soo-wan (Goo Hye-sun) riding the merry go around and Dylan Park/Park Dong-joo (Lee Sang-yoon).

Jung Shi-hyun (Jung Kyoung-Ho) comes here for a breather in episode 1 of Heartless City/Cruel City (무정도시) (JTBC, 2013) after a run in with Scale (Kim Byung-ok).
