A Twosome Place — Naebang Station Store [투썸플레이스 내방역점]

Jung Sa-ha (Stephanie Lee) passes by this store in episode 12 of Start-Up (스타트업) (tvN/Netflix, 2020), and spots a 1-for-1 special on iced vanilla lattes. With Lee Chul-san (Yoo Su-bin) in mind, she heads into buy it — and ends up running into Seo Dal-mi (Bae Suzy) and Nam Do-san (Nam Joo-hyuk), who cheekily tease her about it. In episode 14, Chul-san (Yoo Su-bin) and Sa-ha come here to discuss the incorporation of the Samsan Tech team’s new business.

This is where Han Song-yi (Park So-dam) worked part-time at in episode 1 of My First Time/Because It’s The First Time (처음이라서) (Onstyle, 2015). Yoon Tae-oh (Choi Min-ho of SHINee), who was meant to meet a blind date, chanced upon Ryu Se-hyun (Jung Eugene) instead, thinking he’s her date. While buying coffee, Tae-oh overhears the cafe manager (special cameo by Hong Seok-chon) being overbearing towards Song-yi, and confronts him in a fist-fight. Song-yi ends up being sacked on the spot.

Known as ‘Purple Coffee’ in 49 Days (49일) (SBS, 2011), this cafe is where Song Yi-kyung (Lee Yo Won) worked at in the evenings as a part-time barista.
