It was suggested that son Ki-woo take a part-time tutor position with a rich family outside the Woori Supermarket, which in real-life is called the Doijissal or Pig Rice Supermarket. Owned by Kim Kyung-soon, the supermarket in the Mapo district is quickly becoming a hotspot for movie fans. Find it at 32, Songijeong-ro, Mapo-gu.
Steps to the Parks' house
When you're finished with the Woori Supermarket, another movie location can be found only one minute away.

Check them out at 3 Songijeong-ro, 6-gil, Mapo-gu.
Pizza Generation was the name in the film for real-life pizzeria, Sky Pizza, and it opened 17 years ago.
