Yoon Hee-jae (Joo Ji-hoon) takes his work team to this Pizza Alvolo branch in episode 10 of Hyena (하이에나/Haiena) (SBS, 2020), for a delicious corn pizza lunch and a briefing of Korea’s inheritance tax. On the way out, he runs into Kevin Jung (Kim Jae-chul) and lies about his feelings for lawyer Geum-ja. “She’s not my type,” he claims. But, of course she is!
This branch also appears as the pizza restaurant owned by Sanchez (Cho Hyun-chul) in Hotel Del Luna (호텔 델루나) (tvN, 2019). It is seen, for instance, in episode 4 when Jang Man-wol (Lee Ji-Eun/IU) demands that Koo Chan-sung (Yeo Jin-goo) takes care of her. As a result, he brings her to this restaurant and gets humiliated when Sanchez talks less-than-nicely about Chan-sung’s boss (who, of course, is Man-wol, and she chooses to eavesdrop quietly instead of making herself known).
Pizza Alvolo — Mullae Branch [피자알볼로 문래직영점] is a branch of South Korean pizza chain Alvolo [피자알볼로], which translates from Italian to ‘flight, emergency’. It was established in 2005 by Department of Hotel Culinary Arts [호텔 조리학과를] graduates and brothers Lee Jae-wook (이재욱) and Lee Jae-won (이재원) with their first store in Mok-dong, then growing their company by advertising it through TV shows (like in this case).
This Alvolo branch is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Yangpyeong 1(i)-dong [양평제1동] in the Yeongdeungpo District [Yeongdeungpo-gu/영등포구].
