The Volga [볼가] (closed)

Discovery of Love (2014); Dalja's Spring (2007)

Han Yeo-Reum (Jung Yu-Mi) is a regular at this restaurant since 10 years in Discovery of Love/Discovery of Romance (연애의 발견) (KBS2, 2014). This is where she meets her now-boyfriend Nam Ha-Jin (Sung Joon) on a blind date as we see in a flashback in episode 1 and this is also where she gets drunk and calls her ex-boyfriend Kang Tae-Ha (Eric) to fetch her in the same episode; drunk as she is, she thinks she must be dreaming because Tae-Ha (from whom she had kept distance since their break-up) talks back to her.

Kang Tae-bong (Lee Min-ki) and Oh Dal-ja (Cha Rim) run past this restaurant in episode 2 of Dal-ja’s Spring/Dalja’s Springtime/Spring of Dal-ja (달자의 봄) (KBS2, 2007) when both are running from the mobsters send by Tae-bong’s grandfather.
