The staircase that leads up to this restaurant also leads up to Jung Gal-hee (Jin Ki-joo) house and so this place is several times seen in the background in The Secret Life of My Secretary/I Loved You From The Beginning/How to Train My Blind Boss (초면에 사랑합니다) (SBS, 2019) as in episodes 17 and 18 (full episode 9).
This is the restaurant where everything happens in Flower Boy Ramen Shop/ Flower Boy Ramyun Shop (꽃미남 라면가게) (tvN, 2011).
Later, in Bride of the Century (백년의 신부) (CSTV, 2014), Na Doo-rim (Yang Jin-sung) takes over the ownership of this restaurant together with her grandmother. We see her visit the shop the first time in episode 7.
