Han Song-yi (Jung Chae-yeon) passes by these two shops in episodes 4, 5 and 7 of My First First Love/Because It’s My First Love (첫사랑은 처음이라서) (Netflix, 2019) as they are supposed to be located on her way home.
On their date in episode 30 of Your House Helper (당신의 하우스헬퍼) (KBS2, 2018), Kwon Jin-Kook (Lee Ji-Hoon) and Yoon Sang-A (Go Won-Hee) come to the street at which Art Platz is located at and Sang-a looks at a handmade jewelry stand in front of this shop and strikes up a conversation with the seller while Jin-kook gets something to eat at a food truck.
The huge argument between best friends Ko Jung-won (Go Kyung-pyo) and Lee Hwa-shin (Cho Jung-seok) in episode 20 of Jealousy Incarnate (질투의 화신) (SBS, 2016) takes place just in front of this shop.
Na Ji-young (Min Hyo-rin) and Park Byeok-soo (Gong Myung) walk past here in episode 1 of the mini-series Individualist Ms. Ji-young (개인주의자 지영씨) (KBS2, 2017).

Yang Jung-gook (Choi Si-won) and Kim Mi-young (Lee Yoo-young) walks along the street in front of these shops in the teaser ‘[티저] 4.1 만우절! 최시원 X 이유영의 대국민 사기극이 벌어진다! [국민 여러분!]’ (25.02.2019) of My Fellow Citizens!/Fellow Citizens (국민 여러분!) (KBS2, 2019).
Art Platz [아트플라츠], which literally translates to ‘Place for art’ and Create A Bracelet Workshop [팔찌만들기] sit next to each other on Seongmisan-ro 26-gil. Both places are listed together here as they create a visual architectural unity as both store fronts are painted in continuous rainbow colors and are most of the time seen together in K-Dramaland.
The two shops are located in Seoul’s neighborhood Yeonnam-dong [연남동] in the Mapu District [Mapo-gu/마포구] only two houses down the street from Pyo Na-ri’s (Gong Hyo-jin) rooftop apartment — the house in which everyone else also lives in Jealousy Incarnate.
