The specialty food ‘Seed Hotteok’ on the street of Busan Nampo-dong that’s well loved by Busan citizens for the last 30 years has officially entered the food court in the basement of Lotte Department Store in Gwangbok on November 25.
After a visit from Lee Seung Gi on the popular TV program ‘1N2D’, a lot more people have come to look for ‘SeungGi Hotteok’. It has become so popular that over 1000 hotteoks can be sold in one day.
However, using Lee Seung Gi’s name just like that can run into legal issues. So the Chinese characters of Seung Gi (勝祈) meaning ‘wish for victory’ are used as the store name. Each hotteok is priced at 900 won.
[Isn’t that sneaky?! In the press picture, SeungGi’s hangul name definitely stands out more than anything else.]
