Ji Seo-joon (Wi Ha-joon) brings Kang Dan-i (Lee Na-young) to this one-table, private dining restaurant in their neighborhood (called ‘Royal Raloon’), after meeting her at Cha Eun-ho’s (Lee Jong-suk) house in episode 8 of Romance is a Bonus Book/Romance is a Supplement/How To Publish Love (로맨스는 별책부록) (tvN, 2019).
From then, they would return here in subsequent episodes. In episode 10, both of them are back here but this time together with Eun-ho and Song Hae-rin (Jung Eugene). The more Seo-joon implies that he has prepared all the food himself catering to Dan-i’s taste, the more Eun-ho gets jealous. In episode 12, Eun-ho comes here after receiving a call from Seo-joon, and sees Hae-rin passed out drunk on the table. To his horror, Eun-ho learns that she had two pots of cucumber soju — despite being allergic to cucumbers.
