Wow, The Korea Times beat me to it–at least in publication date. I mention a little bit in my next SEOUL Magazine article about Japanese food culture starting to spread in Seoul. Yes, I know, Japan is right next door, and it’s taken a long time–but there’s some fussy history there that kinda slowed things down. So the old Korean Wave (“Hallyu”) is turning into the Japanese Wave (“Illyu”).
One thing I learned–I didn’t know Mister Donut was a Japanese chain.
