Cha Joo-eun (Seohyun from Girls Generation/Seo Ju-hyun) comes to this eatery (seen as “몽국할머니”) to pick up some files from a contact in episode 2 of Private Lives/Private Life/Sasaenghwal (사생활) (JTBC, 2020). Upon meeting him, she realizes that the contact is Lee Jung-hwan (Go Kyung-pyo), whom she had met and rejected at a Cheongdam-dong pub a while back. In episode 5, we see Jung-hwan’s side of how he’d come to be at the restaurant.
