It is on the 2nd floor rooftop of this restaurant that Do Min-ik (Kim Young-kwang) and Jung Gal-hee’s (Jin Ki-joo) 12 hour-long affair comes to an end with a kiss in episode 16 (full episode 8) of The Secret Life of My Secretary/I Loved You From The Beginning/How to Train My Blind Boss (초면에 사랑합니다) (SBS, 2019).
Seo Do-hyun (Jung Jin-young) and Yoon Tae-oh (Ji Soo) meet up at the ‘Fantastic Rooftop’ terrace of this restaurant in episode 1 of My First First Love/Because It’s My First Love (첫사랑은 처음이라서) (Netflix, 2019).
The 100 Factory [더백푸드트럭] and also sometimes ‘The 100 Food Truck’ — or ‘The 100’ for short — is a three-storey building divided into a shop (1F), a classic restaurant ‘Seats’ (2F) –that has a small rooftop– and and rooftop ‘Fantastic Rooftop’ (3F), offering Korean-Western fast food from handmade burgers to skewer sticks. It is located in Seoul’s neighborhood of Huam [Huam-dong/후암동], in the Yongsan District [Yongsan-gu/용산구] — just at the base of Staircase Sowol-ro [소월로 계단]. It is also just one street and a minute’s walk away from Doodoong Namsan [두둥남산].
