Fried chicken is trending in South Korea

INCHEON, SOUTH KOREA (REUTERS) - Fried chicken and beer is on the menu in South Korea. More than 4,000 Chinese visitors to South Korea made it their priority to sit down to a fried chicken dinner.

The meal became popular after it was seen on a South Korean drama about an actress and her alien boyfriend.

Wang Ke, a Chinese tourist, said in Mandarin: "I saw on the TV show My Love From The Star that there's fried chicken and beer, so this time when I came to Incheon and I saw this I thought it was really good. Especially as this is the first time I've come to South Korea, I think that everything here is great."

More than 750 tables were set up for the meal. And as with any feast, there was plenty of beer to wash down the crispy fried chicken.
