Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol (2020); Yoo-Na's Street (2014); My Princess (2011); Coffee Prince (2007)

It is at this café that Goo Ra-ra (Go Ara) is supposed to meet up with her secret supporter (whom she calls Twinkle Twinkle Little Star) in episode 6 of Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol (도도솔솔라라솔) (KBS2, 2020) — and curious Jin Ha-young (Shin Eun-soo), Lee Seung-ki (Yoon Jong-bin) and Jin Sook-Kyeong (Ye Ji-won) tag along and observe the situation as nervously as Ra-ra.

Park Hae-young (Song Seung-heon) meets up with Oh Yoon-joo (Park Ye-jin) at the terrace of this café in episode 15 of My Princess (마이 프린세스) (MBC, 2011) and lets her know that he won’t contact her from now on.

This is where Choi Han-Sung (Lee Sun-kyun) lives in Coffee Prince/The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince (커피프린스 1호점) (MBC, 2007). In August 2020, both Lee Sun-kyun and co-star Chae Jung-an returned here after 13 years for a highly-anticipated reunion special, Dear My Youth: Coffee Prince (청춘다큐 – 다시 스물; 커피프린스 1호점).

Also seen in Yoo-Na’s Street/Yu-na’s Street/Steal Heart (Yuna-eui Geoli/유나의 거리) (JTBC, 2014).
