Hong Jin-kyung offers American partnership to Yoo Jae-seok
Hong Jin-kyung, a model and businessman known to have achieved cumulative kimchi business sales of 310 billion won and annual sales of 18 billion won, proposed a joint business to Yoo Jae-seok.

On the 11th, an episode titled ‘The fake life that came back is just an excuse’ was released on the YouTube channel ‘Tteutteot’. Guests included Ji Seok-jin, Hong Jin-kyung, and Jo Se-ho.

In the video released on this day, Hong Jin-kyung said, "I am touring the United States this time, and now it is the era of K-food. In the past, when Japanese food was popular, sushi restaurants opened all over the United States. Now, the era of Korean food has begun. We are opening a Korean snack restaurant franchise. “I have to do this. I’m crazy about kimbap and tteokbokki. I don’t know what will happen.”

He continued, "It's really not the outskirts. We need to open a proper store in the middle of New York, in front of NYU. It costs 120 million won a month to rent. You shouldn't rent it. You can't make money if you rent it. Even if it's not a building, you should buy a store. “We need to get investment,” he explained.

He said, "Actually, it got underway a while ago. I was just going to do it if I wanted to. But the reason I've been holding back a bit is because I learned something I didn't know. The United States is a heaven for spicy food. An older brother I know runs a restaurant that is doing really well. Employee I was really good to him, but he said he was going to file a complaint as soon as he left. Even if I didn't do anything wrong, if I get sued, it will be reported that I did something wrong. “It looks like it, doesn’t it?” he expressed his concern.

However, when asked why she wanted to do it, Hong Jin-kyung made people laugh by saying, "Even if you get sued, it feels different between being sued alone and being sued by the four of you. It's not like there are three people including Yoo Jae-seok. It's okay because we're quiet."
