This place appears as the Itaewon branch of ‘Jangga Pub’ [장가포차] in Itaewon Class (이태원 클라쓰) (JTBC, 2020). In episode 6, for instance, after Oh Soo-a (Kwon Na-ra) approached Park Sae-ro-yi (Park Seo-joon) on the street, they walk past it.
Manmankokoro — Hongdae Branch [만만코코로 홍대점], opened in 2018, is the Hongdae branch of dakgalbi restaurant chain Manmankokoro. It is located in Seoul’s neighborhood of Seogyo [Seogyo-dong/서교동], in the Mapo District [Mapo-gu/마포구], that makes up parts of Hongdae [홍대]. It occupies the 2nd and 3rd floor of the building, whereas Gobchangjo–2nd Hongdae Branch [김덕후의곱창조 홍대2호점] is located on the first floor. When Manmankokoro took over the two upper floors of the building, they were completely remodeled after their chain’s corporate identity. The restaurant sits not very far from Encore Coffee [앙코르커피] and Joseon [조선시대].
Please note that in Itaewon Class, this restaurant is supposed to be located in Itaewon — however, its actual location is in Hongdae.
