This place was known as YOLO Cafe in Because This Is My First Life/This Life Is Our First (이번 생은 처음이라) (tvN, 2017). The cafe, run by Yeon Bok-nam (Kim Min-gue) and his father, was where Ji-ho (Jung So-min) got a job at in episode 6. Most of the principal characters of the show would have come through here for a visit at some point in the drama. It was also where Se-hee (Kim Min-ki) did an epic back flip in episode 8, in an attempt to avoid falling on Bok-nam’s expensive motorcycle.
In real life, this place is known as The Lost Continent of Mu [무대륙] (or Mu for short) and functions as a multi-purpose event/culture space. It is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Hapjeong-dong [합정] in th Mapo District [Mapo-gu/마포구], near the Danginri Thermal Power Plant [당인리화력발전소].
