In episodes 8 and 9 of Strangers From Hell (타인은 지옥이다) (OCN, 2019), Yoon Jong-woo (Im Si-wan) –who had decided to go back to his hometown the next day and never return to Eden Goshiwon— spends the night at this hotel along with his girlfriend Min Ji-eun (Kim Ji-eun). Upon waking up from a horrible dream, he sees Seo Moon-jo (Lee Dong-wook) in the doorway. He impetuously gets his knife and pins him to the wall with it pressed against Moon-jo’s neck. Jong-woo comes back to his senses and finds out that it is not Moon-jo, but rather Ji-eun. She then leaves the hotel, terrified. Jong-woo follows and tries to stop her from leaving; however, she suggests they take a break and quickly gets into a taxi before Jong-woo can argue further.
