Song Hae-rin (Jung Eugene) tries to make amends with Ji Seo-joon (Wi Ha-joon) at this bookstore in episode 13 of Romance is a Bonus Book/Romance is a Supplement/How To Publish Love (로맨스는 별책부록) (tvN, 2019), in an attempt to save Gyeoroo’s agreement with him. She ends up tying a cute bow on his dog, Geum-bi, in hopes of making him smile — but the effect was instead quite the opposite.
