On October 15 and 16 in Osaka and Tokyo respectively, Se7en opened the first two of his Yeolbong Jjimdak restaurant franchise in Japan. Interest in Se7en’s restaurant was explosive as over 500 customers visited Se7en’s restaurants in Osaka and Tokyo on its first day of sales.
The restaurant′s extension marks a successful rise for Se7en who opened the Yeolbong Jjimdak a few years back in Gangnam Station in Seoul before opening some 10 more restaurants around Korea. The Osaka and Tokyo branch marks the first time the restaurant has opened abroad.
Even prior to the launching of the Osaka and Tokyo branch, Se7en’s restaurants in Korea showed popularity and interest from Japanese visitors with many even today making it a point to stop and try the dish during their visits to Korea.
Additionally, China is said to be interested in the restaurant as the restaurant contemplates extending its reach to the Middle Kingdom as well.
