I like chicken very much~!

I love chicken very much, especially fried chicken. In Korea, there are lots of franchise companies, as you know, and KFC is also famous in Korea. Today, I’ll introduce Korean chicken franchises. And the most amazing thing is that when you want to eat chicken, they can deliver it to you wherever you go.  The beach, mountain, park and the office where you work, you can get it through one call. It’s much more delicious to eat chicken with friends in front of Han river. When you visit Korea, you can try it. They can deliver it to you as soon as possible. They also credit card reader machine, so don’t worry about paying it for cash.
