If you’ve been keeping an eye on rookie girl group K-Pop music videos, you may have noticed that a certain set is being used in several of them!
Dubbed the “Paradise Diner”, the filming location seems to have been made specifically for filming and taking photos, and may not actually be a real diner. In fact, there are allegedly some other sets in a warehouse nearby that have been used for different K-Pop MVs as well.
So far, the earliest music video that fans noticed the “Paradise Diner” was in STAYC‘s “Beautiful Monster” performance video, which was released on July 24 this year.
Nearly a month later, SKYLE‘s “Bye Bye Bye” music video was released and showcased the diner, along with other locations allegedly inside the nearby warehouse.
Soloist Youha released a video of her song “Last Dance” on August 31 that included using both the interior and exterior cafe.
A few days ago, on September 16, CRAXY also used the diner for the set of their “Real” music video, once again using both the inside and outside for filming.
And finally, earlier today MAKAMAKA came out with their new music video for “I Am” using the diner and the other warehouse locations mentioned before.
It hasn’t just been spotted in rookie girl group music videos either — TWICE‘s Nayeon recently shared some photos from a shoot she took at the location as well.

Fans speculate that the location was built specifically to be rented out for K-Pop artists to use for pictures and filming, so it will be interesting to see if the trend continues!
