JR Pub [제이알펍]

Nevertheless (2021)

Yoo Na-bi (Han So-hee) first meets Park Jae-eon (Song Kang) at this pub-restaurant when she comes here on her own to drink (as she bitterly recalls her break-up with her boyfriend) in episode 1 of Nevertheless/I Know But (알고있지만) (JTBC/Netflix, 2021). Jae-eon mistakes her for somebody else, but still sits next to her (she falls for him at first sight) and they end up spending the evening together playing darts. They meet here again in episode 8/9 (seen as ‘J.B. Pub’).
