BTS Jimin increased the world interest toward Tteokbokki after his visit to a local Tteokbokki street stall last year!

BTS Jimin who is known for his impact, popularity and strong brand power previously made a short visit to a local Tteokbokki street stalls in Korea after shopping. During his short visit to the stall he spent a short time meeting and greeting his fans before leaving. The short and sweet moment was shared on various online communities and social network. Recently it was reported that his short visit to the local store has caused a sudden rise in both interest and the sale of Tteokbokki around the world.

Tteokbokki (stir-fried rice cakes) is a popular Korean food made from small-sized long, white, cylinder-shaped rice cakes. It can be seasoned with either spicy chili paste or non-soy sauce. Today, Tteokbokki is commonly purchased and eaten at snack bar as well as street stalls and restaurants.

Korea media reported, as the global market is booming with Tteokbokki, rice processing food is becoming an export powerhouse. Exports of rice processed foods are expected to be a new breakthrough, with rice overproduction continuing every year due to falling domestic demand. The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs said the exports of processed rice products reached 100 million U.S. dollars last year, doubling in five years. By country, the sales in U.S. increased to 36 million dollar, followed by Japan with 16 million dollar and Vietnam with 13 million dollar. In particular, exports to Vietnam grew 25.2% on-year, marking a significant growth. U.S. exports increased as demand for frozen fried rice and instant rice, which can be easily cooked in a short period of time, among Asian and Latin American migrants. In Asian markets such as Japan and Vietnam, where hallyu culture is largely affected there, Tteokbokki has become very popular among young people, leading to an increase in exports.

Aside from BTS Jimin, EXO's Chanyeol who also shared Tteokbokki recipe was also mentioned in their report.

Jimin is famous for his talent in dancing. His solo songs are amazingly successful on Spotify, YouTube, SoundCloud, even on UK chart. His effects are real.

But some people with no knowledge are brave enough to talk about his talent.

Dance expert talked about Jimin’s dance: “Jimin has a specific dance style that only he can do. This style of dance cannot be learned by anyone as it has to come naturally.

He has a special ability to “jimin-ify” any style of dance and make it his own.

It’s not easy for Jimin to explain or teach someone his style of dancing because it is so detailed, fluid and particular to just him.

Jimin’s dance style is not something that can be imitated and can be seen as a “PIECE OF ART””

Some people commented here to show their jealousy and salty. I know. Success always goes with jealousy.
