[Sports Seoul | Reporter Kim Hyeon-deok] The recent status of 'Hong Tak House', the Pobangteo market in Seodaemun-gu, Seoul, which attracted attention as a villain in SBS 'Baek Jong-won's Alley Restaurant' five years ago, has been revealed.

Recently, on the YouTube channel 'Lazy Gourmet Club', '5 years after broadcasting... A video titled 'Baek Jong-won's Alley Restaurant Hong Tak House' has been uploaded.

According to the video, the name of Hong Tak House is currently changed to 'Mother and Son'. Inside the store, the memorandum written by CEO Kwon Sang-hoon at the time of the broadcast and the promise to the customers were hung.

In response, the YouTuber said, "It seems that you put it on so that you don't lose your original intention even though it's been a fairly long time of 5 years since the broadcast."

The price of chicken gomtang rose from 5,500 won five years ago to 7,000 won. Regarding this, the YouTuber evaluated, “It seems that the price is maintained at a low price at 7,000 won compared to the price that has risen a lot.”

The YouTuber added, “Unlike the appearance of a beginner in the business at the beginning of broadcasting, it seems to have a system and appearance suitable for the representative restaurant of Four Bangteo in 2023.”

He continued, “I was a little surprised (the generous amount) compared to 7,000 won because (chicken gomtang) was filled with chicken and glass noodles. It's really delicious when you dip chicken in narcotic sauce," he said. "It's so delicious that it's comparable to the 50-year-old chicken gomtang restaurant I introduced on my channel a while ago."

He speculated, "It seems that I continued to manage the menu and try to taste it even after the broadcast."

In addition, the video shows the boss guarding the kitchen and the store even during lunch on weekdays. In a past broadcast, the president promised Baek Jong-won that he would never be lazy in running the store.

In addition, it showed a variety of business expansion, such as delivering chicken stir-fried soup or making and selling meal kits.

President Kwon said, “After appearing in ‘Alley Restaurant’, sales increased 20 to 30 times. I once recorded 80 million won in sales in a month,” he said, expressing his gratitude to Baek Jong-won.
