My Roommate Is A Gumiho (2021); Start-Up (2020); 18 Again (2020); Closer To Uijeongbu Than Sadang S3 (2018)

Lee Dam (Hyeri from Girl’s Day) attends a history faculty get-together here with her friends Choi Soo-kyeong (Park Kyung-hye) and Do Jae-jin (Kim Do-wan) in hopes of being able to enjoy meat, but finds herself having fried chicken (which she’s prohibited from eating) in episode 2 of My Roommate Is A Gumiho/Frightening Cohabitation (간 떨어지는 동거) (tvN, 2021). Her senior, Gye Sun-woo (Bae In-hyuk), takes an interest in Dam but she has to avoid him at all costs because he is a Tiger (per his zodiac).

The original Samsan Tech trio gather here in episode 9 of Start-Up (스타트업) (tvN/Netflix, 2020), after Nam Do-san (Nam Joo-hyuk) was informed by his cousin that his parents had found out that Do-san is no longer the CEO of the company.  Do-san begins to practice what he would say to his father when they finally meet, and he ends up in tears.

Jung Da-jung (Kim Ha-neul) meets up with best friend Choo Ae-rin (Lee Mi-do) at this restaurant in episode 8 of 18 Again (18 어게인) (JTBC, 2020). In the same time, Ye Ji-hoon (Wi Ha-joon) gets a photo invitation from friends hanging out here to join them. When having a second look at his friends’ photo, he discovers Da-jung sitting in the background. He comes and joins Da-jung (not his friends), who was left on her own by Ae-rin, who had run out to respond to a call just before.
