This was the setting for Yoo-jin (Joo Won)’s mother’s cafe in Naeil’s Cantabile/Tomorrow’s Cantabile/Cantabile Tomorrow (내일도 칸타빌레) (KBS2, 2014). Nae-il (Shim Eun-kyung) and Min-hee (Do-hee) both worked part time at the café. While the exterior is indeed from the original store, it appears that the interior of the store was a recreated set.
This branch of Café Droptop [카페드롭탑 홍대점], opened in 2013, is located on Eoulmadang Street [어울마당로] in Hongdae [홍대], which is part of Seoul’s neighborhood Seogyo [Seogyo-dong/서교동] in the Mapo District [Mapo-gu/마포구]. It’s next to colline [콜린] and opposite Funny Land – Hongdae branch [홍대 퍼니랜드], and the store’s exterior can occasionally be seen in some drama scenes filmed there.
