Get Closer to Idols, Try the Inkigayo Sandwich

By Stephanie Lemus

If you’re a fan of K-pop, then you might be familiar with the SBS Inkigayo music show. Many idols go there to perform, but there’s also a delicious plus side to performing there: the chance to get the famous Inkigayo Sandwich! As you can see, Hoshi, Seungkwan, and Joshua from SEVENTEEN had fun taking pictures of it!

This sandwich was a hot topic on Korean social media sites a couple of months back. It became so popular that 7-Elevens in Korea started selling them! If you’re in Korea, you can get one for around two dollars!

Inkigayo sandwich from 711 in Korea 🤔 It’s potato egg salad on one side, some kind of lettuce salad on the other and strawberry jam in the middle. Sounds weird but it’s weirdly addictive. The sweetness of the strawberry jam hits you randomly and makes you wanna take another bite. Worth a try for ₩2000, if only it was filled more completely (only the front view looks full) • • • #inkigayo #inkigayosandwich #sandwich #food #foodstagram #igfoodies #foodporn #foodblogger #hungrygowhere #whattoeat #igfood #eats #igeats #foodreview #foodgram #foodguide #foodie #foodgram #dailyfood #인가샌드위치 #먹스타그램 #맛있다그램 #Koreanfood #Korea #샌드위치 #편의점 #오늘뭐먹지 #푸드그램 #인스타푸드 #간식추천

The music group VAV, who released with their latest single "Senorita" in late 2018, hung out with YouTuber Dave (from World of Dave), joining in banter and the tastiness of this sandwich. In the interview, VAV member St. Van said, “You don’t wanna perform at Inkigayo without this sandwich.”

You might be wondering, "What's in it that makes it so amazing?" It going to sound a little odd, but it includes strawberry jam, potato egg salad, and imitation crab meat—a strange combination but it goes together surprisingly well!

If you aren’t in Korea, you can always make it at home! Idols say there’s nothing like the original, but if you want to take on the challenge, here’s a video with the recipe:

Enjoy it with a couple of stage shows from your favorite groups, and eat what they eat! You’re sure to have an eggcellent time!
