Tottenham players took on the ‘Songpyeon’ challenge. James Madison (26) and Manor Solomon (24) shared their impressions of eating Songpyeon, a traditional Korean rice cake and Chuseok food.
Tottenham released a special video to celebrate Chuseok, Korea’s biggest holiday. On the 28th (Korean time), the video ‘Madison-Solomon’s Songpyeon Challenge’ was posted on the club’s official YouTube account. The video showed the two players eating songpyeon.안전놀이터
First, Madison and Solomon unpack the ‘K-wrapper’ filled with songpyeon and look closely at the vacuum-packed songpyeon. Madison showed good reasoning skills, saying, “When I first saw it, it seemed like a dessert type of food. It seemed like a very sweet food. Isn’t it something you eat with coffee?” However, he soon showed his lack of confidence, saying, “What if it’s a sausage-like food?”
Madison asked, “Can I try it?” and picked up the darkest songpyeon. He then took a bite and said, “I chose it because it was chocolate colored. I’ll give it a try.” When the rice cake got stuck between his teeth, he put his hand inside his mouth and laughed.
Madison’s score for Songpyeon was 6 out of 10. He said, “For my taste, it’s a 6. It has a chewy texture and the contents are quite sweet.”
Solomon’s response is that he enjoys songpyeon more than Madison. Solomon, who saw songpyeon for the first time, looked puzzled and said, “What is this? Isn’t it a dumpling? Or is it a type of food similar to dumplings? I have no idea.”
Solomon, who ate songpyeon, said, “It’s not bad,” and showed interest in the contents of the songpyeon. He then said, “Isn’t it honey? It’s quite sweet,” and gave it 8.5 out of 10.
‘Transfer Duo’ Maddison and Solomon moved to Tottenham this summer and are playing very well. Maddison has started all league games and is recording the most attack points among Tottenham players with 2 goals and 4 assists. Solomon also comes on as a replacement and is playing a ‘crack’ role by providing 2 assists.
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min, who celebrated Chuseok in England, also sent Chuseok greetings to his fans. On this day, he said on the club’s official YouTube channel, “Hello, I’m Son Heung-min, a soccer player. I hope you have a comfortable time with your precious family, who you haven’t been able to be with for a while, and have a fun and leisurely Chuseok where you can share your rich and generous feelings.”
