Back in Korea’s history, a mass famine struck the peninsula leaving people starving in countless villages. A man named Moon Ik-gong sent the seeds of his sweet potatoes to Busan-jin (now Yeongdo) in 1764 to abate the famine and help relieve the starving people. Moon sent along with the seeds detailed instructions on how to cultivate and store the strong, resilient sweet potato for the winter. The first village to grow the potato seeds became known as the “Sweet Potato Village” in Busan, Yeongdo-gu. Koreans love sweet potato as a diet food because it is rich in fiber and is quickly filling.
