This restaurant appears under the name ‘Hong Joo Samgyeopsal’ as Nam Hong-joo’s (Bae Suzy) mothers’ restaurant in While You Were Sleeping (2017) (당신이 잠든 사이에) (SBS, 2017). It becomes a key meeting point for everyone, particularly in episode 7 and 8.
Mapo Sogeum Gu-i [마포소금구이] is a samgyeogpsal (오겹살, grilled pork belly) restaurant located in Seoul’s neighborhood Mangwon [Mangwon-dong/망원동], in the Mapo District [Mapo-gu/마포구]. This restaurant has several outlets in Seoul (thanks, Mich!) so make sure to use the address for directions. Also, there are a couple of restaurants located at this address and at least two other restaurants that sell pork meat. So, you’d want to look out for the restaurant located just at the corner of the main road.
