This is the café in which Ryoo Tae-oh (Lee Joon) works as a barista, as seen in the trailer “Gapdong: Lee Jun Teaser Full Version: ‘tvN New 금토드라마 갑동이 : 이준 티저 풀버전'” for Gap-dong/Gabdong, the Memories of Murder (Gapdongi/갑동이) (tvN, 2014).
Standing Coffee [스탠딩커피] was first launched in 2009 at this location in Seoul’s neighborhood Itaewon [Itaewon-dong/이태원동] in the Yongsan District [Yongsan-gu/용산구]. As its name suggests, there are no seats in this café; and as abstract as it may sound, customers “holding STANDING COFFEE cups themselves become STANDING COFFEE spaces”, as explained on the café’s website. This café is located on the same street as, and is walking distance to/from Club Meca [클럽메카].
