This café was seen in Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (역도요정 김복주) (MBC, 2016-17). Kim Bok-Joo (Lee Sung-Kyung) is asked by her crush Jung Jae-Yi (Lee Jae-Yoon) to meet here in episode 10 because he wants to apologize to her; it’s a total mortifying moment for her and she leaves as quick as possible. In episode 9, we see Bok-Joo and Jung Joon-Hyung (Nam Joo-Hyuk) walk down a street while passing Restaurant 천하 [address: 서울 마포구 와우산로14길 4]. This is actually the street that leads up to café Blüte; the restaurant and the café being only two houses apart. This is the same street you’ll be taking if you’d go to Café Blüte from Sangsu Station (Line 6).
In Plus Nine Boys (아홉수 소년) (tvN, 2014), this is Joo Da-In’s (Yoo Da-in) café.
In Love Rain (사랑비) (KBS2, 2012), this place appears as organic café General Doctor and is Seo Joon’s (Jang Geun-Suk) office and Jung Hana’s (Yoona) garden. The house was also Seo Joon’s studio, the clinic/cafe of Lee Sun-ho (Kim Shi-hoo) and where Seo Joon and Hana stayed on the second floor (their rooms were right next to each other). In the pictures taken by Mich, the room with the blue wall was Seo Joon’s room, and the room with the yellow room was Hana’s. The other pictures are of the common area that the characters used to hang out at.
Seo Geon-ho (Im Joo-hwan) and Kim Bo-ra (Sung Yu-ri) meet up twice at this café in The Snow Queen (눈의 여왕) (KBS2, 2006-07). In episode 7, Bo-ra unexpectedly meets her mother here and in episode 9 Geon-ho breaks up with her at this café.
Cafe Blüte [까페 블뤼테] is a café located in Seoul’s neighborhood Sangsu-dong [상수동] in the Mapo District [Mapo-gu/마포구]. It was formerly known as Four Seasons House [포시즌 하우스], then as Yoon’s Color [윤스칼라] before it was re-named Cafe Blüte. It still has an exhibition part where you can see props and pictures of the famous four-part dramas Autumn in my Heart (가을동화) (KBS2, 2000), Winter Sonata (겨울연가) (KBS2, 2002), Summer Scent (여름향기) (KBS2, 2003), and Spring Waltz (봄의 왈츠) (KBS2, 2006); reason why this places was first called ‘Four Season House’. Another exhibition part is the Love Rain set on the 2nd floor.
