Café Droptop — Hongdae Branch [카페드롭탑 홍대점]

Cantabile Tomorrow (2014)

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.
