This bookstore appears as Kim Sun-ho’s (Han Joo-Wan) book store from episode 4 onwards in Meloholic/Melo Holic (멜로홀릭) (OCN, 2017). In episode 4, Kim Min-Jung (Ahn Sol-Bin) bumps into Sun-ho and he spills coffee on her; in return he give her his card and tells her to drop by at his book store sometime. Since then Min-jung becomes a regular visitor.
Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) is an avid reader like many others in K-Dramaland. So it is of no wonder that this is Shin’s favorite hideout in tvN The Goblin (쓸쓸하고 찬란하神-도깨비) (2016-17). He often transfers back and forth from here to home (episode 3,5,6,8). And Ji Eun-Tak (Kim Go-Eun) often walks by this shop. It is also the place where first physical affections aka skinship between him and Eun-Tak happens when she teaches him how to pat somebody else’s head in episode 6. Before this happens, Shin actually waits for Eun-tak to come by. The lamp pole on which he leans while waiting for her is just a couple of meters down the block – you see the yellow bookstore front in the back.
Bookstore BookNStory [한미 서점], also often named Hanmi Bookstore, is located in Incheon.
