Street food is one of the many things that South Korea is famous for. Some of our faves are: tteokbokki (spicy rice cakes), kimbap (Korean rice roll wrapped in seaweed), and odeng (fish cakes), to name a few! Aside from the fact that the ones we mentioned are *super* yummy, they're also convenient to get, since they're available in almost all K-bbq restos and Korean convenience stores. But today, we’re putting the spotlight on a treat that’s often seen in K-dramas and movies but not so much in the Philippines—Korean corn dogs. Hospital Playlist fans, you can remember this as one of U-ju’s favorite snacks!

This popular snack is not your usual hotdog on a stick dipped in batter: They’re huge, have *extra* toppings, and will certainly leave you full.

If you want an idea of what it tastes like, just imagine a next-level hotdog sandwich, but make it crunchy and fancy. Now for a visual representation:
