Lee Dam (Hyeri of Girl’s Day) and Shin Woo-yeo (Jang Ki-yong) head into this café on their simulation date in episode 3 of My Roommate Is A Gumiho/Frightening Cohabitation (간 떨어지는 동거) (tvN, 2021), and are followed by Gye Sun-woo (Baek In-hyuk). When Sun-woo tries to reach for Dam, Woo-yeo instinctively pulls her away to protect her.
This branch of cafe Gabaedo Coffee [가배도 삼청점] is located on Bukchon-ro 5ga-gil [북촌로5가길] in Seoul’s neighborhood Sogyeok [Sogyeok-dong/소격동] ––under the administration of Samcheong [Samcheong-dong/삼청동]–– in the Jongno District [Jongno-gu/종로구]; in walking distance to/from Dalssi Market [달씨마켓] and Coffee Mill [커피방앗간].
The cafe’s name in hanja is ‘咖啡’ (kāfēi) meaning ‘coffee’ and ‘島'(dǎo) meaning ‘island’, which projects its ideal of being “a small island with coffee in the heart of the city”. Aside from its first outlet located in the quiet Seokchon Lakeside (which opened in September 2017) and this Samcheong-dong branch, it also has outlets in Sinnonhyeon, Myeongdong, Starfield COEX [코엑스], and two branches in Starfield Anseong.
