This sandwich is apparently highly sought-after by not only idols but even by the staff members of idols who are able to visit the SBS Inkigayo snack bar.
“I also eat it every week when we go to Inkigayo. Usually, all the guests name the singer and the agency and pay for it at once later. So I didn’t know the exact price but I found out that the sandwich costs 3,500 KRW.” ㅡ Entertainment Agency Affiliate
“It’s really good so our singers and even staff often eat it. It was famous before too but has become mor popular these days. It’s an Inkigayo must-item.” ㅡ Girl Group Manager
