of Kyung-ju (July 21st, 1999)
It has been the 2nd generation, since the late Choi,
Young-hwa made the hwangnam bread in 1939 on his own.
One piece of hwangnam bread is full of Korean traditional
red beans. That's the real attractive part. Even a sweet
hatred person is not sick of the taste of hwangnam bread.
When it just got out of an oven, it's hard to tell apart
that it's a snack or a steamed bread. The main office of
this bread is always crowded with visitors and foreign travellers,
trying to purchase it for their souvenirs. Sometimes you
have to wait in line for half an hour to buy it. Choi, Sang-eun,
the present president of hwangnam bread, says, "The
taste of this bread has never changed, even though the price
of it has done." It's sold 400 won for one now. Not
long ago, this bread has been chosen to be the special product
of Kyungsangbukdo. There are only a couple of tables in
the head office and branch shop where stand across the 'Chunmachong'
10,000 won for a gift containing 25 pieces of bread.
