Jamigung [자미궁/紫微宫]

Player (2018); My Mister (2018)

The gang turns up here in episode 8 of Player/The Player (플레이어) (OCN, 2018), to tail rogue lawyer Jin Yong-jun (Cha Eun-pyo), who had arranged to have lunch with fellow prosecutors. Cha Ah-ryeong (Krystal Jung) has a close call when she poses as a waitress and he almost calls her out; thankfully, the owner backed her up by saying that she’s an old timer who’s been on a break. Turns out that Kang Ha-ri (Song Seung-heon) bribed him for a substantial amount of money to keep him on their side.

This is where Park Dong-hoon (Lee Sun-kyun) meets CEO Jang (Shin Gu) to talk about his potential resignation in the last episode 16 of My Mister/My Ajusshi (나의 아저씨) (tvN, 2018), but the latter asks him to reconsider because he “does not want to lose” Dong-hoon. The CEO then lets on that he knew about the affair between President Do Joon-young (Kim Min-young) and Dong-hoon’s wife (Lee Ji-ah) because he looked into it after Dong-hoon turned up at the campsite to look for him.

Jamigung [자미궁] was originally a traditional Korean restaurant serving hanjeongsik (traditional Korean cuisine) that opened in 2012 in Incheon’s neighborhood Wondang [Wondang-dong/원당동] in the Seo District [Seo-gu/서구]. As of 2020, this place has become bakery-café Jamigung Bakery [자미궁제빵소].

Its name is derived from the hanja words ‘紫微宫’, which likely refers to the ‘Purple Forbidden Enclosure’, one aspect of the celestial sphere in Chinese culture. It is housed in a hanok (traditional Korean house) built by carpenter Jang Hyeon-ok (장현옥), with its owners claiming it be the largest wooden hanok in South Korea at present.
