The Pomegranate Juice Seller 성류 아저씨

Pomegranate, or 성류 in Korea, is a rich, red, tasty fruit that drips down your chin if you are not careful.  It does this in Iran, Northern India, or where ever it originally came from, but now it delivers its vitamins and nourishment to people all over the world, thanks to refrigerated containers and international trade.  Here are some pics of this guy selling pomegranate juice in Hongdae, Seoul, South Korea.  He also sells chicken on a stick, covered with melted mozzarella cheese.  Yum.

In Spring and Summer, he sells grapefruit juice, just like I used to do.
