This month is the CSAT (College Scholastic Ability Test), so students everywhere are preparing. Likewise, their parents are also preparing (or stressing). That's where the "lucky apples" come into play!
From the article:
This year, apples that did not fall off trees when Typhoon Kompasu hit Korea in early September are being sold at the Apgujeong branch of the Hyundai Department Store. The Korean word for “to fall” also has the meaning “to fail.”
Other retailers are getting into the lucky spirit with special foods and gifts to cater to these students and their parents. You can check out the full article here.
What do you think? Can food be lucky?
