La Retro [라레트로]

Love Alarm (2019); Because This Is My First Life (2017)

Kim Jo-jo (Kim So-hyun) passes by this shop in the evening after having finished her part-time work shift –silently followed by Lee Hye-young (Jung Ga-ram)– in episode 1 of Love Alarm (좋아하면 울리는) (Netflix, 2019).

Yoon Ji-ho (Jung So-min) passes by this shop in episode 2 of Because This Is My First Life/This Life Is Our First (이번 생은 처음이라) (tvN, 2017), still in shock after her colleague, Director Gye (Kim Wook), tried to force himself on her. She stops in her tracks and glances at her reflection in the shop’s window, as she tried to think of whom to call to talk about it. This is before she enters Jahamun Tunnel [자하문터널] and takes a long walk down.
