This is the cafe where Lee Kyu-Won (Park Shin-Hye) and Lee Shin (Jung Yong-Hwa) find shelter of the pouring rain – just in front of it in episode 6 of MBC Heartstrings (넌 내게 반했어) (2011); a moment where they get closer after Kyo-Won had followed around Shin for a while. Kyo-Won and Shin also walk both past this cafe – without seeing each other though – in remembering important moments of their relationship in episode 15 only to meet each other (coincidently?) in a park for the final kiss.
Byoung R Ri Kong Cafe [병아리콩 카페] was replaced by a chocolate shop Miss Fondue [미스퐁듀] in 2016. The building is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Hapjeong-dong [합정동], in the Mapo District [Mapo-gu/마포구].
