A no longer running amusement park located in the Jungnang District in Seoul has become a hot spot for K-pop idols to film music videos or K-dramas to shoot their scenes. The park has old-school theme park rides, giving off an eerie backdrop if you were to film when the sun is down.

Since its closure in 2011, Yongma Land has been open to the public for 10,000 KRW for you to take photos and look around. However, an additional fee of 25,000 KRW is needed if you would like the lights on the merry-go-round ride to be turned on.

Some recent dramas were filmed at the park. The Sound of Magic (2022), Sisyphus: The Myth (2021), More Than Friends (2020), and Alice (2020).
