Although the tvN drama Lovely Runner has ended, it continues to excite audiences as fans visit its filming locations to relive its most memorable moments.

In this drama, the “Han River Bridge” where Sun Jae (Byeon Woo Seok) and Sol (Kim Hye Yoon) reunited after 15 years is actually filmed on the Chuncheon Bridge. This is a very significant location for the characters, as it is where Sun Jae meets Sol, traveling in a wheelchair and sheltering him with a green umbrella. This is also where they promised to meet again on January 1, 2023, making it a crucial point in the story.

The Haenggung-dong district of Suwon, where Sun Jae and Sol spent their childhood, is also increasingly popular. Part of the UNESCO-listed Hwaseong Fortress, this area offers a nostalgic atmosphere due to strict development regulations. Visitors can enjoy the murals and unique cafes and restaurants of Haengnidan-gil.

Fans can explore Sun Jae and Sol’s homes, the alleys they walked down, and nearby Hwahongmun Square, where they cheered in the baseball final of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.


Another place not to be missed is Banghwasuryujeong Pavilion, where high school student Sun Jae taught Sol how to ride a bicycle. Located east of the Hwahongmun Gate of Hwaseong Fortress and built in 1794, this pavilion offers breathtaking views and serene surroundings. Known by the official name Dongbukgangnu, it is renowned for its picturesque setting.

In episode 13, the duo had a date at Sapgyoho Amusement Park in Dangjin, Chungnam Province, which is retro in style and features attractions such as a Ferris wheel, a boat viking, a nightclub and a carousel, all with the backdrop of the West Sea and the Seohae Bridge.
