Sharing more about the video, Ms. Huynh Chon Phuong (born in 1991, hometown in Ca Mau), currently living and working in Choengju City, Chungcheongbuk-do province, South Korea, the owner of the clip said: “When I first opened it, I didn't think Koreans would like sugarcane juice so much. They praised the delicious, some people drank 3 cups in a row. In 3 days, I pressed 1.5 tons of sugarcane. In Korea, there is no sugar cane, so for Koreans, this is a new drink. I imported the juicer and sugarcane from Vietnam."

Huynh Chon Phuong currently lives and works in Cheongju city, Chungcheongbuk province, Korea.

Sugarcane is cut into pieces, packed in boxes, and transported from Vietnam to Korea. Ms. Phuong shared: "I import purple sugarcane from Hoa Binh province with the criteria of being both soft and sweet. On weekdays, I sell about 300-400 cups, and on weekends it's more than 1,000 cups. Although there are many human resources, 7 sugarcane scrapers, 3 people squeeze the juice and sell it, when there are many customers, they still can not make it in time, so customers line up in groups of 15-20 people to wait to buy. A glass of sugarcane juice costs 5,000 won (about 90,000 VND)."
