Gong – Korean Dining [한정식 공 레스토랑]
No Jung-a (Jin Kyung) meets Yoo Hye-mi (Pyeon Jung-su) and the other Asung High School moms at this tea room in episode 3 of Melancholia (멜랑꼴리아) (tvN, 2021). Prior to her arrival, Hye-mi and the moms were adamant about requesting for the removal of Ji Yoon-su (Im Soo-jung), but become rather meek in her presence. When Jung-a leaves, Hye-mi heads out to speak to her privately about helping her daughter Ye-rin (Woo Da-vi). In episode 12, Ryu Sung-jae (Choi Dae-hoon) has lunch here with his mother, who asks him to quickly proceed with marrying Noh Yeon-woo (Oh Hye-won).
Hotel Prima [호텔 프리마], opened in 1988, is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Cheongdam [Cheongdam-dong/청담동] in the Gangnam District [Gangnam-gu/강남구]; right next to the Cheongdam Deokyang Building [청담덕영빌딩] and Cafe de Bodyfriend — Cheongdam Branch [카페 드 바디프랜드 청담점]. It is also a 5-min walk to/from Bottega Lounge Seoul [보테가 라운지/보테가라운지 서울].
Over the course of its history, the 9-storey, 120-room hotel has undergone various phases of remodelling and extensions, particularly in 2004. Along with its various F&B offerings and facilities like a sauna and spa, it also consists of a museum and separate guest house.
Gong [공], the hotel’s Korean restaurant, is based off the philosophy that “food and medicine share a common origin” (약식동원/药食同源).
