Ho-rang and Won-seok’s Rooftop House [호랑과 원석의 옥탑방]

Two Cops (2017-18); Because This Is My First Life (2017)

This is Ho-rang (Kim Ga-eun) and Won-seok’s (Kim Min-seok) rooftop house in Because This Is My First Life/This Life Is Our First (이번 생은 처음이라) (tvN, 2017). After the couple broke up, Ho-rang moved out of the house, leaving Won-seok staying there alone for a time. In episode 16, both Se-hee (Kim Min-ki) and Ji-ho (Jung So-min) met here by chance when they both moved in without each other knowing.

In episode 14 of of Two Cops (투깝스) (MBC, 2017-18), this house is part of a crime scene concerning domestic violence. Gong Soo-chang (Kim Sun-ho) comes here in Cha Dong-tak’s (Cho Jung-seok) body together with Dokgo Sung-Hyeok (Hoya) until Soo-chang sees blood and is thrown out of Dong-tak. More importantly, it is here that both come to understand how Soo-chang got into Dong-tak’s body (water to get in, blood to get out).

In the evening, Dong-tak comes back here to find hints for the case, as does Song Ji-an (Girl’s Day’s Hye-ri). Both meet on the rooftop and Ji-an explains how the media portrays some behaviors as romantic, when they are actually violent in reality. She ends up pushing Dong-tak to a table (K-Drama hero style) as an example. When it becomes awkward between them, she begins to retreat but instead, he pulls her in for a kiss (also in K-Drama hero style) – but not before asking her if his gesture would also be considered violent, which she responds with a ‘no’.


This rooftop is part of the building that houses a Korean restaurant called ‘여기잔치났구먼’ (loosely translated to ‘There’s a party here’). It is located in Incheon’s neighborhood of Yonghyeon 1(il).4(sa)-dong [용현1.4동].
