Pyo Na-ri (Gong Hyo-jin), Lee Hwa-shin (Jo Jung-suk) and Go Jung-won (Go Kyung-pyo) eat here at the end of episode 7 of Jealousy Incarnate (질투의 화신) (SBS, 2016). This is where – after disputing the ‘bra-mon’ (money Na-ri wants to get back from Hwa-shin for buying him his medical bra) – Hwa-Shin gets jealous the first time but encourages Jung-won and Na-ri to date. After Hwa-shin leaves, Na-ri and Jung-won stay on, where the latter begs for her affection “like a beggar”, as he says himself in the beginning of episode 8.
In episode 7 of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (역도요정 김복주) (MBC, 2016-17), Jung Joon-hyung (Nam Joo-hyuk) brings Kim Bok-joo (Lee Sung-kyung) here to cheer her up.
