The staircase that leads up to this restaurant also leads up to Jung Gal-hee’s (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 episode 4 (full episode 2) and 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.
