OLIVE BBQ CHICKEN PREMIUM CAFÉ, JONGNO BRANCH [비비큐 프리미엄 카페]
In episode 3 of The King: Eternal Monarch (더킹:영원의 군주) (SBS, 2020), Eun-sup (Woo Do-hwan) and Sin-jae (Kim Kyung-nam) wait upstairs at this restaurant for Tae-eul (Kim Go-eun) to join them for chicken and beer, however she messages to cancel. A few days later, after receiving no matches on his DNA test, Lee Gon (Lee Min-ho) and a frustrated Tae-eul come here for a meal and a lesson on mixing somaek (soju and beer). While she goes to the bathroom, he adds a takeaway order to the bill, so he can snack in his hotel.
In episode 9 of Goblin/Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (쓸쓸하고 찬란하神 – 도깨비) (tvN, 2016-17), Sunny (Yoo In-na) opens her BBQ chicken restaurant in a new, more successful location, and Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun) applies there for a part-time job. Later in the same episode, Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) and The Grim Reaper (Lee Dong-wook) continue their bromance and embarrassing bickering over chicken and beer, and Reaper discovers his sad past with Sunny.
