Tissen/Mirang Showroom [티센 미랑 쇼룸]
(2017 ~ Jan 2020)
The Violent Crimes Team 3 stakes out this store in episode 10 of The Third Charm / The 3rd Charm (제3의 매력) (JTBC, 2018), in order to catch the wanted criminal named ‘Snakehead’, who turns up secretly to look up his girlfriend, Soo-jung. Detective Lee (Yoon Jong-hyuk) happens to walk in at the time ‘Snakehead’ was in there, trying to convince Soo-jung to run away with him. Following that, a chase ensues.
This was previously the showroom for beauty brand Tissen/Mirang [티센 미랑 쇼룸], located in Seoul’s neighborhood Seogyo [Seogyo-dong/서교동] in the Mapo District [Mapo-gu/마포구], which makes up part of Hongdae [홍대].
As of January 2020, it has been taken over by 3RD MUSEUM [3rd뮤지엄], a gallery that “present[s] work by largely unseen young artists or by international artists whose work has been rarely or never exhibited in Republic of Korea“.
