BiancoItalia — Cheongdam Branch [비안코이탈리아 청담점] (2017—2020)
After their rock climbing session in episode 6 of The Third Charm / The 3rd Charm (제3의 매력) (JTBC, 2018), Baek Joo-ran (Lee Yoon-ji) and Kang Chul-nam (Lee Ha-yul) come to this ‘pet cafe’ for a meal. Although Joo-ran isn’t particularly keen about exercising or pets, she pretends to have an interest in them when Chul-nam brings up the topics.
BiancoItalia [비안코이탈리아] catered primarily to the care and well-being of dogs. It had two outlets that offered services like a doggy day-care service, pet hotel, grooming and spa (for dogs, of course), and an academy. The scene from The Third Charm was filmed at the Cheongdam branch’s [청담점] restaurant, Bianco Forest (비안코포레스트).
This branch, opened in September 2017 and closed in 2020, was located in the Triad Building [트리아드빌딩] in Seoul’s neighborhood Cheongdam [Cheongdam-dong/청담동] in the Gangnam district [Gangnam-gu/강남구], on the same street as Luka 511 [루카511] (3 min walk), and a 5 minute walk to Bottega Lounge [보테가 라운지].
As of October 2020, it appears that BiancoItalia has ceased operations, and the space is currently up for rent.
