What memory would you like to have if you ever visit this tunnel from Twenty-five Twenty-one? The Hanbyeokgul Tunnel has seen it all, from Baek Yi Jin and Na He Doo meeting, to their parting ways, to the closing of the chapter of their lives that involved them.

- Our Beloved Summer/A Business Proposal – Lotte World
Remember our beloved summer when Choi Ung and Kook Yeon Soo wore couple shirts and were supposed to have fun at a theme park but ended up breaking up?
What about Shin Ha Ri and Kang Tae Moos’ adorable and fun date at Business Proposal where they wore cute headbands, rode a carousel and played with bumper cars?
These two opposing storylines, a breakup in Our Beloved Summer and a fun date in Business Proposal, were both filmed in the same location, one of South Korea’s most famous theme parks, Lotte World.
Located in Seoul, Lotte World is known for its outdoor Magic Island and indoor Adventure. Magic Island offers both thrills in the form of challenging rides and relaxation in the form of beautiful scenery as it is surrounded by Seokchon Lake.
Lotte World’s Adventure is now the world’s largest indoor amusement park, where you can choose and enjoy from a plethora of rides, enjoy magnificent parades and shows, and fill your stomach with food from around the world. .
You will certainly never run out of work when you visit Lotte World as there are other amenities for your enjoyment such as; B. an ice rink, a folklore museum, a hotel, a shopping mall, etc.
- The Glory – Cheongna Lake Park in Incheon
One of the most visually appealing sets in The Glory is the huge Paduk plateau that helps Ha Do Yeong, Park Yeon Jin’s husband, build a park. The game of Paduk or Go carries a very important symbol in the drama, which is why this park is also a central part of it.
The park was actually built by the drama’s film crew. The giant Go board is made of stone and covers an area of 2,777 square meters.
After the filming, Incheon Facilities Corporation decided to put up the sign in the park to encourage fans to visit the place themselves. Although the giant Go stones you see in the draae don’t actually exist in real life, you can still cross the board and play a game of Go in the park.
