Coffee Hanyakbang – Hyehwa Branch [커피한약방 혜화점]

True Beauty (2020-21); My Unfamiliar Family (2020)

Im Joo-kyeong (Moon Ga-young), Kang Soo-jin (Park Yoo-na), Choi Soo-a (Kang Min-ah), and Yoo Tae-hoon (Lee Il-jun) come to this cafe for their study session in episode 4 of True Beauty/Yeoshingangrim (여신강림) (tvN, 2020-21) — and is surprised to see that Lee Su-ho (Cha Eun-woo of ASTRO) had come to join them, despite previously turning them down.

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.
