Korean BBQ in Korea

I read an article (translated) about SNSD and SuperJunior eating at a Korean BBQ restaurant in Seoul after the 2009 Golden Disk Awards. The article said that the entire dinner party was ~50 people and they ordered 80 servings of meat; the total bill came out to ~$1500. I'm not sure what they mean by "serving" in the article but here in LA, each plate of raw meat is ~$20 and can probably feed one or two people, especially when you add in all the side dishes and rice.

80 servings for 50 people sounds like a lot of food and the bill was ~$30/person. I thought Korean BBQ in Korea would be less expensive than LA... it's actually quite comparable.

Original article (Korean)
On December 10th Super Junior, who took the Best Album award, and SNSD, who took the Best Digital Single award, celebrated after the 2009 Golden Disk Awards at a local Korean BBQ restaurant in Seoul.

The two "sibling groups," who cried and comforted each other after receiving the highest distinction awards, went to a local restaurant at 11:30 PM that night. They arrived in casual clothing with no make-up on and still could not hold their emotions in.

Usually after winning a huge award, there is an "alcohol party" to celebrate, but because most members are under age and their busy schedules the next day, they celebrated with Sprite instead.

Because Super Junior had a concert in China the next day, they were unable to drink. Lee Teuk and Kim Heechul, who are old enough to drink, mixed soju (alcoholic beverage) and Sprite together and showed an example of a *love shot. There was a total number of 50 people, which included the two groups and other staff members. They ordered 80 portions of meat and the bill came out to be $1500 (USD).

Tiffany seems to speak a lot. She's a MC on MBC's Music Core program but I think her Korean is the worst out of the 9 members. I think she just likes to talk.
