Goo Ra-ra (Go Ara) performs for a first time as a child as this venue in episode 1 of Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol (도도솔솔라라솔) (KBS2, 2020). She is so stressed out that she repeats playing Missa La sol fa re mi (or as she says it’Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol’) and the only one in the audience who applauds her is her dad Goo Man-soo (Eom Hyo-seop) which makes her become a famous pianist and she is later in the episode seen performing at this same venue as an adult.
This is where the Massa Maren show takes place in episodes 5-6 of Twenty Again/Second 20s/Second 20’s/Second Time Twenty Years Old (두번째 스무살) (tvN, 2015). Ha No-ra (Choi Ji-woo) and Kim Woo-chul (Choi Won-young) get VIP tickets separately and while he comes with his lover Kim Yi-jin (Park Hyo-joo), No-ra comes on her own and thus finds out that her husband has an affair.
The exterior of this building appears as the venue where the launch show of Uhm Ki-joong’s (Lee Hyun-woo) lingerie brand ‘The Ro:’ –which Oh Dal-ja (Chae Rim) is in charge of– takes place at in episode 3 of Dal-ja’s Spring/Dalja’s Springtime/Spring of Dal-ja (달자의 봄) (KBS2, 2007). After the show, a devastated Shin Se-do (Kong Hyung-jin) waits for his ex-lover Wi Sun-joo (Lee Hye-young) on the stairs and tries in vain to get back together with her. Later, Kang Tae-bong (Lee Min-ki) runs up the stairs to help out Dal-ja.
Also seen in as the wedding venue in Reply 1994 / Answer Me 1994 (응답하라 1994) (tvN, 2013).
