Café Cube [카페큐브]
This café appears as the cafeteria of Kim Ki-bum (Key of SHINee/Kim Ki-bum) and Kim Dong-young’s (Kim Dong-young) school in Drinking Solo (혼술남녀) (tvN, 2016). In episode 5, for instance, Gong-myung (Gong Myung) and Ki-bum (Key) discuss in this cafe about their friend Dong-young (Kim Dong-young) who decided to not hang out with them until he passes the civil service exam. Chae-yeon (Jung Chae-yeon) who is sitting at the next table, mentioned that she used to like SHINee and that Min-ho (Choi Min-ho) was her first love. Ki-bum overhears and gets huffy, saying that Chae-yeon has low standards because Min-ho was a total thug back in school. He claims that he taught Min-ho to dance, and stands up in his chair to prove it.
