Kim Myeong-ha (Kim Min-gue) waits in a cafe on this street for his exchange student ‘buddy’ Mong-mong (Elkie from CLC) in episode 11 of Rich Family’s Son (부잣집 아들) (MBC, 2018), who had asked him to bring her to a public bath as there was no hot water where she was staying. His initial grumblings were subsequently soothed over when he saw her looking fresh (and pretty) after her bath.
Aya [아야] is actually a milliner’s (hat shop), and not a cafe as the show makes it out to be. It’s located on Gyedong-gil [계동길], the central street of Seoul’s neighborhood of Gye-dong [계동] in the Jongno district [Jongno-gu/종로구], that is part of Bukchon Hanok Village [북촌한옥마을].
