Daeho Stationery Corporation [대호문구상사] is a commercial and residential building located at the Incheon Baedari Secondhand Bookstore Street/Baedari Bookstore Alley [인천배다리헌책방거리] in Incheon’s neighborhood Geumgok [Geumgok-dong/금곡동] —part of its administrative neighborhood Geumchang [Geumchang-dong/금창동]— in the Dong District [Dong-gu/동구]; just opposite from Bookstore BookNStory [한미 서점] and a short walk to/from Abel Bookstore [아벨서점]. This part of the town, which appears as ‘Kisung’ in Lawless Lawyer, is actually called ‘Baedari’ [배다리]’ and was originally part of Incheon’s old city center.

The building houses, among others, stationery shop Daehosa [대호사] and household goods store Daeilsa [대일사]. It is also home to experimental space Day Store – Everything’s Okay/Yoilgage Dagwaenchana [요일가게-다 괜찮아], which was established by villagers and local artists to revitalize the Baedari Village community. Various events are held here each day, along with pop-up stores setting up shop here. “On some days, it turns into a place to practice classical guitar,” as online magazine Ab-Road (에이비로드) explains, “And on other days, into a cafe where you can drink hand drip coffee. It has become a theater or restaurant, and it can be a lecture room or bookstore where folk painting classes are held.”
