Humanity in Warming Foods
제 121 호    발행일 : 2010.11.28 

 As winter comes, various street stalls have appeared selling snacks you've never seen around the campus. Bungohpang(carp-shaped cookies), Kughwapang, Chinese pancakes and sweet potatoes are examples of the winter season food. Though hardships exist, sellers struggle to manage their livelihoods. Confronted with the chilly wind, the reasons they started their business are different. If you know their heart-warming stories, their snacks might be more delicious. - Ed
 

 Once you walk into Jung-mun, there is a little stall called "Scent of Kughwappang." The storekeeper of this stall is deaf and has sold cookies for the last three years. His devotional effort is for his young children who need medical care. His business hours are from 1 p. m. to 9 p. m. on weekdays, and he does not work on weekends holidays because he has to take care of his children.
 Once, when he was working, a student asked if she could learn sign language from him. He said that he can't still forget the student because the student had an interest in him and wanted to learn about sign language.
 When I asked about his job, he answered, "There are no hard tasks in this business. I've got used to this work." With his Kughwappang, you will get through this winter a little warmer.

 As you walk toward the CBNU East Gate, you can meet a woman selling bungohbbang on the opposite side of the CBNU Hospital. She bakes bungohbbang with custard cream as well as red beans.
 Until she settled on that place, she had roamed from one place to another because some shop owners around her booth and local citizens notified the police about her unauthorized sales. She works diligently every day from ten in the morning to late at night. Recently, her sales haven't been as good as they used to be because of recently economic slowdown. Nevertheless, she said that she feels satisfied when some students visit again because of her delicious breads.
 When CBT reporters bought some bungohbbang, she gave a few for free and said with a smile, "I give some complimentary breads to hungry students, old women like my mom and little children, though it cuts into my earnings." Her bungohbbang makes students and locals feel her warm-heartedness.

  Winter is almost here. People are looking for warming foods to protect themselves from the cold. Let's talk about roasted sweet potatoes, a famous one among them. Sweet potatoes are rich in dietary fiber, which can help to regulate people's diets and has a marvelous effect on preventing high blood pressure and cancer. In addition, sweet potatoes lose their nutrients less than other agricultural products when they are cooked. People can find a roasted sweet potato seller around Jung-moon. The price of a bag of sweet potatoes is 3,000 won, and the price of a bag of roasted chestnuts is 1,000 won. The seller does not have a fixed area for selling, so he hangs around places where people crowd from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. Kim Kyung-je (a student of Dept. of Mathematics, 08), a customer, said, "When the urge for sweet potatoes strikes me, I often buy some. I think the best cooking method for sweet potatoes is roasting." In the cold of winter, if you want to eat sweet potatoes, look for him around Jung-moon. Let's try some sweet potatoes which not only have a good taste but are also healthy.

 Recently, young Chinese pancake sellers turned up in Jung-moon near Chungbuk University. The two sellers are Kim Yeon-jin(Cheongju University '10) and Lee Bum-jin(Chungcheong University '10). They are both only twenty years old. They have been very close friends since they were young boys. The two friends study in school during the daytime and sell Chinese pancakes near CBNU at night.
 The sellers stuff the dough with pumpkin and fry it skillfully. Visitors praise their skill, and Kim said, "At first, we were poor at handling the dough and frying it, so we had to throw out many messed-up Chinese pancakes. We spent many nights practicing to make better Chinese pancakes." When asked what difficulties there are in making Chinese pancakes, he answered, "My friend and I started the work to earn our tuition fees. Being Chinese pancake sellers is very difficult because of standing for such a long time, getting burned by hot oil, and our eyes are smarting from the smoke. However, when we see the customers enjoy our Chinese pancakes, we feel delighted."
 Late on cold wintry nights, they are busily making Chinese pancakes.
