Hwang Han-joo (Han Ji-eun) and her ex-husband No Seung-hyo (Lee Hak-joo) meet twice in this cafe in Be Melodramatic/Melo Suits Me (멜로가 체질) (JTBC, 2019). In episode 15, Seung-hyo explains that he wants to get their family back together because he’s sick, which Han-joo refuses. She ends up trying to slap him multiple times, but he dodges every blow. Jae-hoon (Gong Myung) comes in and punches him to the ground, immediately apologizing and saying that it’s his job to resolve whatever his sunbae couldn’t. In episode 16, Seung-hyo bargains to send their child In-gook (Seol Woo-hyung) to Jeju during his summer vacation. He also offers the apartment he used to live in in Seoul, which Han-joo impetuously accepts.
