Coffee Hanyakbang — Hyehwa Branch [커피한약방 혜화점]

My Unfamiliar Family (2020)

This is the “retro café” that Kim Sang-sik (Jung Jin-young) looked up online as a good dating spot for older couples and where he brings his wife Lee Jin-sook (Won Mi-kyung) in episode 11 of My Unfamiliar Family ([아는 건 별로 없지만] 가족입니다) (tvN, 2020). Following the dating advice he’d read online, he shows her photos on his phone while drinking coffee — until the situation becomes more earnest with some heart-to-heart conversations.
