After Lee Dam’s (Hyeri from Girl’s Day) disappointing blind date, Shin Woo-yeo (Jang Ki-yong) decides to cheer her up by teleporting her to this (closed) museum for a private visit in episode 6 of My Roommate Is A Gumiho/Frightening Cohabitation (간 떨어지는 동거) (tvN, 2021). This was also to encourage her to continue pursuing the things she loves — which she took as a positive sign for her growing feelings towards him.
