In 2015, Lee Man-shik (Kim Eung-soo) sends his intern Ka Yeol-chan (Park Hae-jin) to this restaurant — appearing as ‘Gol Marketplace Rice Soup Restaurant’ in episode 1 (full episode 1) of Kkondae Intern/Old School Intern (꼰대인턴) (MBC, 2020) saying that its owner has accused Ongol Food of having stolen his recipes and Yeol-chan should talk to him a bit to calm him. When Yeol-chan arrives at the restaurant, he saves the owner’s life who then cooks a rice soup for him. When Yeol-chan revisits the restaurant in episode 2 (full episode 1) the owner has passed away.
