Yang Jung-guk (Choi Si-won) and Kim Mi-young (Lee Yoo-young) come here after leaving the club in episode 2 (full episode 1) of My Fellow Citizens!/Fellow Citizens (국민 여러분!) (KBS2, 2019). In Mi-young’s drunken state, she suggests that they try dating each other to get over their exes, and that she’d give Jung-guk till daylight to decide. They stay there till morning, and he tells her that he’ll date her. The couple come back here for regular meals, and this is also where Jung-guk eventually proposes to Mi-young, which she accepts.

While surfing the internet in episode 7 of Touch Your Heart/Reach of Sincerity (진심이 닿다) (tvN, 2019), Kwon Jung-rok (Lee Dong-wook) finds out that this is Oh Yoon-seo’s (Yoo In-na) favorite restaurant. She explains in a TV show that was broadcasted when she was on top of her career and that is filmed here, that she comes to this restaurant often to get something to-go, especially when she feels down. A little later, Yoon-seo orders something at this restaurant and is taken by surprise when Jung-rok suddenly stands next to her – without waiting for her order, she runs out of this restaurant until Jung-rok catches up to her.

Kim Jin-hyuk (Park Bo-gum) and Cha Soo-hyun (Song Hye-kyo) meet up for dinner at this restaurant in episode 12 of Encounter/Boyfriend (남자친구) (tvN, 2018-19) and he shows her a “new world”, i.e. chicken feet and how to eat them. But in reality he wants to assure himself that Soo-hyun and their relationship won’t be troubled by her ex-husband’s feelings.

Lee Young-jae (Esom) comes here with surprise meet Choi Ho-chul (Min Woo-hyuk) in episode 5 of The Third Charm / The 3rd Charm (제3의 매력) (JTBC, 2018) to relieve her stress by eating something spicy.

Min Chae-rin (Lee Yu-ri) invites Ha Yeon-joo (Uhm Hyun-kyung) for a drink here in episode 10 of Hide and Seek (숨바꼭질) (MBC, 2018), telling her that she didn’t have anyone else to turn to as a friend. Yeon-joo eventually confides in Chae-rin about the possibility of her husband-to-be cheating on her.

  1. K-Clothes

    Can somebody please tell me what jacket that Jin Shim is wearing in that scene in ‘Touch Your Heart’? (The white one with the quote and black stars) Thank you!

    1. hello! we don’t usually assist with queries beyond those related to drama locations (that’s what our site is about, after all!), but i couldn’t resist. seems like other kdrama fashion sites haven’t been able to find the hoodie as well >.< (you can search #유인나패션 on Instagram). Here's a fun fact, though - the quote is most likely part of a lyric from a Real Madrid song!

  2. Same Location

    This is the same Location in Episode 12 of Encounter/Boyfriend and Episode 5 of The Third Charm
