In Korea, Bungeoppang is a very popular snack in winter. In winter, the weather is cold. pedestrians like to buy the Bungeoppang from the street vendors . The Bunggeoppang will be put in a  paper bag after baked, when holding the paper bag, pedestrians will feel very warm ....(The street vendors will bake it on the spot)

在韩国,鲷鱼饼在是冬季是非常普遍及流行的小食。 冬季,天气寒冷,街上的行人都喜欢向街边的小贩购买鲷鱼饼。这鲷鱼饼在烘焙后,会被装在一个纸袋里,行人用双手捧着这热烘烘的纸袋,双手会感到很温暖。。。(小贩们都是现烘焙现卖)

In Korean, bung'eo (붕어) means Carassius, a kind of fish, and ppang (빵) means bread.

Bungeoppang (lit. “crucian carp cake/bread”) is the Korean name of Taiyaki, which was first baked by a sweet shop Naniwaya in Azabu, Tokyo, Japan, in 1909.

Bungeoppangs are made using an appliance similar to a waffle iron. The batter is poured into a fish-shaped mold, red bean paste is added, then more batter to encase the red bean paste. The mold is then closed, and roasted.

Bungeoppang is sold as a snack by open-air food vendors throughout Korea during winter.   
There are also bungeoppang-shaped waffles filled with ice cream and pat (sweetened and boiled red beans or azuki beans).
