Before they became the world-famous Kpop idols of today, BTS members were just hungry boys who ate 3 meals a day in this restaurant.
“I used to always tell them to eat a lot, and said that I can’t continue if my health doesn’t keep up, but now our restaurant is receiving so much love,” said Kang Seon Ja, owner of a restaurant in Seoul.
The restaurant, which is called Yoojung Sikdang and located in Nonhyeon-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, was once a place where BTS members ate 3 meals a day.
Yoojung Sikdang, which was located right above the basement where BTS members practiced, was shared as their frequent dining place in the 2013 show “Rookie King”. In fact, BTS themselves described the food there as home to them, making Yoojung Sikdang somewhat of a “sacred place” for BTS fans.
In regards to the love they receive from BTS and fans alike, the restaurant itself, which has around 10 tables, is now covered with BTS’s face and name. Fans who visited the place would often show their fan spirit, covering all the walls and ceilings with their favorite idols.
Recently, the owner of Yoojung Sikdang, Kang Seon Ja, has shared with news1 various old stories of BTS members, as well as some hidden secrets.
