What is a Korean corn dog?

Korean corn dogs are believed to have been invented in Korea before gaining popularity in Taiwan, Japan and China. They are a Korean take on the popular American snack of the same name.

The centre is made from either sausage or cheese, or a combination of both, which is then placed on a skewer and dipped in batter and rolled in breadcrumbs. Other toppings are then added – like potato, diced french fries, crushed ramen noodles, or crispy rice – and they are fried until crispy and golden brown.
