Bar Omusa [오무사]

VIP (2019); Something in the Rain (2018)

Park Sung-joon (Lee Sang-yoon) meets Vice-President Ha’s mistress at this bar in episode 13 (full episode 7) of VIP/V.I.P. (브이아이피/Beuiaipi) (SBS, 2019), and informs her that the VP wishes to end the relationship. When she refuses, he tells her that it would be better for her parents not to know about this, and pulls out a confidentiality agreement for her to sign. After they part ways, Sung-joon runs to the nearest alleyway (Pirun-daero 7-gil) and vomits — a physical reaction to his inner disgust at his actions.

Yoon Jin-ah (Son Ye-jin) and Seo Joon-hee (Jung Hae-in) are regulars at this restaurant in Something in the Rain/Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food/Pretty Sister Who Treats Me to Meals (밥 잘 사주는 예쁜 누나) (JTBC, 2018). They come here in episode 3 and Joon-hee asks Jin-ah here to buy him food if he asks to. But actually he wants to ask her out as he confesses to her when they come back to this restaurant in episode 6 as a couple. It is also in episode 6 that their couple gets exposed for the first time as one of Jin-ah’s colleagues comes here with friends and surprises them while being all lovey-dovey (just after Joon-hee has told Jin-ah that he’d like to introduce her to his friends on a couple trip). They come back here in episode 8 and he asks her to date openly and about him making their relationship public. In episode 14, they are her again and she tells him that she’ll move out of her parent’s place and of course he directly understands that it is not on her own will but that her parents have asked her to leave.
