Midari candy 미달이 사탕

lollies.jpgThis candy was produced by Chungwŏn chegwa around the year 2000. Midari, played by Kim Sŏngŭn, was a popular character from SBS’s TV series ‘Sunp’ung sanpuin’gwa’ (Smooth Sailing Gynaecology). It’s one of many unsuccessful examples of real-life talents being turned into cartoon characters. According to Master Lee’s niece, who began eating the candy before he could stop her, the small pills “taste nice”, but they nonetheless look very much like they’re made of cardboard.
