Yoon Jin-Ah (Son Ye-Jin) and Seo Joon-Hee (Jung Hae-In) come here often for their lunch break in Something in the Rain/Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food/Pretty Sister Who Treats Me to Meals (밥 잘 사주는 예쁜 누나) (JTBC, 2018). In episode 1, it is the first time that she asks him to have lunch together, and he proposes to have wine with the meal and tells her about how one needs to breaks rules once in a while (and he also pays the meal). Both are back here for lunch in episode 7 and he knows that she hides something from him but she won’t tell. It is also in this conversation that Joon-hee convinces Jin-ah to buy a mobile phone in replacement to the broken one. They come here again in episode 11.
