Doesn’t this seem pretty random? 😆 But this poll came about because Koreans traditionally eat tteokguk (rice-cake soup) as a celebration of the Lunar New Year.
The music portal site Bugs ran a poll from January 25th to February 7th asking “which star seems to be able to cook delicious tteokguk,” and over 2000 of its members participated.
Lee Seung Gi took the #1 spot with 45% (898) of the votes. Netizens left various comments such as “Since I’ve often seen Lee Seung Gi cooking on 1N2D, I’d like to eat tteokguk cooked by him” to show their support for Lee Seung Gi.
