This venue appears ‘Hoon and Hwan Oriental Clinic’ that is run by Park Ri-hwan (Lee Dong-wook) in Bubblegum/Bubble Gum (풍선껌) (tvN, 2015) — as seen in episode 1, 2 and 4, for instance.
Arumjigi Culture Keepers Foundation [재단법인 아름지기] is a private non-profit foundation founded on 18 December 2001, with the aim to “preserve 5,000 years of Korean culture and tradition and pass it on to future generations”. The 4-storey building, completed in 2013, seamlessly blends modern aesthetics with traditional hanok architecture. It is located at Hyoja-ro in Seoul’s neighborhood Tongui [Tongui-dong/통의동] —overseen by the administrative neighborhood of Sajik [Sajik-dong/사직동]— in the Jongno District [Jongno-gu/종로구], just a short walk to/from Oliva Garden [올리바가든] and History Book [역사책방].
