Park Ji-Sung is something of a national hero in South Korea. He played for, and captained, Korea’s national football team until he retired from international football and is now playing for Manchester United.
Whenever kids, taxi drivers, or waiters hear that you are from England ‘Ahh Park Ji-Sung! Manchester! Soccer!‘ is invariably their first response.
One of the most unusual dedications to Park Ji-Sung I’ve seen so far is at Kraze Burger. The Park Ji-Sung ‘Power Energy’ burger. It has a long list of ingredients including swiss cheese, paprika, mixed vegetables, green tea popping candy, a black rice oatmeal bun and a choice of sauces; power amino or multi vitamin.
None of us were brave enough to order it, we were put off by the idea of meat and popping candy in the same mouthful, sorry Ji-Sung!
