Bar San-Jang [산장] (relocated)

Descendants of the Sun (2016); Discovery of Love (2014)

Seo Dae-Young (Jin Goo) thinks of this bar in a flashback in episode 4 of Descendants of the Sun/Descended From the Sun (태양의 후예) (KBS2, 2016). Here came here with Yoon Myeong-Joo (Kim Ji-Won) after he went to his ex-girlfriend’s marriage and Myeong-Joo had pretended to be his new girlfriend.

Everyone meets up here to drink in episode 5 of Discovery of Love/Discovery of Romance (연애의 발견) (KBS2, 2014). Her drunken ex-boyfriend Kang Tae-Ha (Eric) confesses his new-found love to Han Yeo-Reum (Jung Yu-Mi) and she later introduces Nam Ha-Jin (Sung Joon) as her boyfriend to her friends; while Tae-Ha visibly hurts inside.
