In episode 2 of Why Secretary Kim/What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim (김비서가 왜 그럴까) (tvN, 2018), this place appears as karaoke bar ‘Valencia’ in Cheongdam-dong, which Lee Young-joon (Park Seo-joon) books for his team after he accompanied them to a usual karaoke bar that he felt to be too shabby.
PK Motors’ M-Car launch after party took place here in episode 4 of Are You Human?/Are You Human Too (너도 인간이니?) (KBS2, 2018). Kang So-bong (Gong Seung-yeon) comes here with Reporter Jo (Kim Hyun-sook) to hunt down Nam Shin (Seo Kang-joon), but is intercepted by his fiancee Ye-na (Park Hwan-hee). Later, a fire breaks out in the bar and So-bong helps to lead people out to safety, but she gets stuck under a falling beam. Fixated on saving lives, Nam Shin III heads in and eventually finds and saves her.
This appears as the club where Young Jin Sun-mi (Oh Yeon-Seo) goes to in episode 4 of Hwayuki/A Korean Odyssey (화유기) (tvN, 2017-18) to chase the glutton that makes women eat without taking on weight; she gets the glutton transmitted by a girl attending the club and Son Oh-gong (Lee Seung-gi) — who had followed her here — gets rid of it while Sun-mi is protesting.
A drunk Kim Tak-soo (Kim Gun-woo) hangs out here with his girlfriend in episode 6 of Fight For My Way/Third-Rate My Way (쌈 마이웨이) (KBS2, 2017), when Ko Dong-man (Park Seo-joon) comes here, knocks him down and threatens him not to take him easy.
This is also where Kang In-woo (Choi Min-soo) and Yoo Hyun-jung (Park Ji-young) meet up after he calls her in episode 16 of The Liar and His Lover / Lovely Love Lie (그녀는 거짓말을 너무 사랑해) (tvN, 2017). In-woo tells her he has a favor to ask and Hyun-jung says that if it’s about Han-gyul and Crude Play, then he can just forget about that favor. They talk about the issue with Crude Play and how their opinions about it clash – just like old days. In-woo tells her that she’s right in saying that it’s already too late for them.
Jang Se-ran (Kim Ji-Hyun) opens this space as the pub Angel’s Tear in episode 15 of Hundred Million Stars from the Sky / The Smile Has Left Your Eyes (하늘에서 내리는 일억개의 별) (tvN, 2018) and makes Kim Moo-young (Seo In-guk) the CEO.
