Choi Jun-woo (Ong Seong-woo) comes to this convenience store to apply for a part-time job in episode 1 of Moments of Eighteen/Moments of 18/At Eighteen (열여덟의 순간) (JTBC, 2019). When he spots a shoplifter in action, he takes off after him and eventually recovers every single stolen item, and returns it to the store — this very act secures him his part-time job.
