My Visit to Itaewon~ Marley Coffee & Love Forecast Filming Location, My Thai China

This past Friday, I had a conference in Seoul so I had some time to stop by Itaewon for a cup of Marley Coffee and to see the restaurant, My Thai China, where Love Forecast was filmed. For those who have already watched the movie and seen the the previews, it’s the scene where Jun Soo plays rock, paper, scissors with Andrew to see who pays the dinner bill. Jun Soo loses and while he’s paying the bill, Andrew and Hyun Woo drive off without him, leaving him running down the staircase after them.  The mural on the wall by the staircase is unique and I made sure to take a decent photo of it to share with you. ^^

Here is the famous mural on the restaurant’s wall that appears in Love Forecast:

That’s the end of my visit to My Thai China. After crossing an alleyway, across the street was Itaewon’s Marley Coffee. I stopped by to purchase their Limited Edition Americano and Summer Edition Stainless Steel Tumbler.

m16The Single Origin Americano was really deep tasting without any sugar, exactly the way I like my Americano. It wasn’t like the other slightly sweet RTD Americano version sold in CU stores for 2,000 Won less. It was worth the 4,700 Won which in US Dollars is about $3.50 a bottle. The stainless steel tumbler was 16,000 Won which is approx $14 US dollars.
