Ponghak Butter Review
No, I'm not from North Korea, so you can put down that grenade.
Reading your article from last October, I was wondering why a biscuit from North Korea would look like a Sumerian tablet when I realized the picture must be upside down; if you rotate the picture you have on your site the letters "????" are legible. "??" is the North Korean way of pronouncing butter (something like ba* da) while "??" is the all-encompassing term for a snack/munchie/treat, so the design on top of the biscuit is actually "butter biscuit" in Korean, surrounded by weird circles and dots.
I don't think I'd like to try one, though.
|Nicey replies: Thanks Yoonna,
Yes I thought I only had a 50:50 chance of having it the right way up. Thank you again for deciphering it for us.
Note: There were lots of lovely Korean character things in Yoonnas message but I can't figure out how to get them on to NCOTAASD
