Lee Ga-young (Shin Se-kyung) and Jung Jae-hyuk (Lee Je-hoon) come to this restaurant for lunch in episode 7 of Fashion King (패션왕) (SBS, 2012) and he proposes her to join a new company — while Choi An-na (Kwon Yuri) overhears everything at a close-by table. In episode 9, Jae-hyuk is back here but this time with An-na whom he asks if she wants to marry him, which she agrees to as if it is a business deal. Later, Jae-hyuk’s father and Design Director Kim Il-woo (Jung Man-ho) join them and an already awkward situation becomes even more awkward.

The awkward first meeting between the families of Seo In-ha (Jung Jin-young) and Kim Yoon-hee (Kim Mi-sook) takes place here in episode 14 of Love Rain (사랑비) (KBS2, 2012), when Seo Jun (Jang Geun-suk) and Jeong Ha-na (Yoona from Girls Generation) comes face to face as each of their parents’ children, and not each other’s lover.
