Even if Lee Hyo-ri and Lee Sang-soon are not here, Jeju Cafe is full of complaints
Two days after Lee Hyo-ri and Lee Sang-soon’s Jeju Cafe opened, they received explosive attention, and voices of dissatisfaction came out.
KBS 2TV’s “Yeonjung Live,” which aired on the 7th, visited Lee Hyo-ri and Lee Sang-soon’s Jeju Cafe, which opened on the 1st and became a hot topic. The cafe was not operated on the day the production team visited, but there were visitors to see Lee Hyo-ri and Lee Sang-soon.
In an interview with the production team, they said, “I wanted to come because Lee Sang-soon was running a cafe. I came here because I thought I could see Lee Hyo-ri,” he said. “I wanted to come here on purpose,” adding that he came to take commemorative photos even if he did not operate a cafe.
This phenomenon took place on the day of the opening of the cafe of Lee Hyo-ri and Lee Sang-soon. It is related to the reason why the cafe was closed for only two days and reorganization.
Residents living nearby said to the production team, “It is inconvenient (to operate the cafe). Even though tourists are not open like that, they keep coming. Grandmothers have to go to the senior citizen center and come back, but if the car is blocking all the roads, they can’t even pass by,” he said, pointing out that the car was parked in a place other than the cafe’s owner’s window.
The resident said bitterly, “I will understand if a person without money makes money, but I don’t understand common sense if a person with money should set it up here.”
On the other hand, some residents welcomed the opening of the cafe by Lee Hyo-ri and Lee Sang-soon. The reason was the crowds of tourists. “As tourists continue to visit, I think this effect will gradually make the surrounding area a tourist destination,” he said. The wind was contrary to the residents who complained of the damage earlier.
Lee Sang-soon announced several facts related to the cafe on his Instagram on the 5th. First of all, he drew the line that he was the representative, not the cafe of Lee Hyo-ri and Lee Sang-soon. His wife, Lee Hyo-ri, stressed that the cafe had nothing to do with him.
And he said, “I will do my best to prevent damage to the villagers,” adding that he will only take charge of the entire operation and not reside in the cafe.
However, Lee Sang-soon’s intentions and the hopes of the audience were different. Even if Lee Sang-soon was registered as a representative, it was recognized as “Lee Hyo-ri Lee Sang-soon Cafe” by those who visited. Moreover, even when the couple were not in the cafe, there were people who came to take commemorative photos even on closed days.
I wonder how Lee Sang-soon’s decision to run a cafe only on a reservation basis will affect the residents and the commercial district in the future
