In Twenty Five Twenty One, Na Hee Do is a big fan of manhwa Full House, and Baek Yi Jin worked at the comic store she rented from. So, when he leaves to visit family, they communicate via payphone, and he mentions Full House, knowing how much she loves it and promises to return before the next volume is released.

Did Full House volume 14 come out yet? I’ll show up before volume 15 comes out.

It even inspired one of the most iconic K-Dramas of all time. In 2004, KBS adapted the manhwa for TV with Rain as the male lead.
