Walkabout Bar [워커바웃] (2013—2021)

Love With Flaws (2019-20); Hwayugi (2017-18)

Joo Won-suk (Cha In-ha) drops Choi Ho-dol (Jang Yoo-sang) off in front of this bar in episode 14 of Love With Flaws (하자있는 인간들) (MBC, 2019-20). On the stairs that lead up to his apartment, Ho-dol’s father already awaits him. As soon as he has told Ho-dol that he trusts him as his son, he leaves to catch the last bus back home.

Jin Sun-mi (Oh Yeon-seo) —also known as Sam Jang— is attacked by a black devil on her way back home in the alley just beside this bar in episode 2 of Hwayuki/A Korean Odyssey (화유기) (tvN 2017-18) and Son Oh-gong (Lee Seung-gi) jumps in to protect her. Afterwards, he suggests for Sun-mi to give up on her life (and be eaten by him) as it would be even more difficult for her to fight off those black devils. She leaves bewildered and leaves her umbrella behind. A little later, we see her come back looking for it, with Oh-gong waiting for her at the top of a close-by building. He then magically drops her umbrella back to her (that he had repaired in the meantime).
