You would think that after releasing his first solo album and preparing for mandatory enlistment, BIG BANG maknae Seungri will be delegating his noodle empire to his trusted lieutenants, but you couldn’t be more wrong.
Just this August, Seungri opened three new branches of his Aori Ramen bringing the franchise to almost 50 branches all over the world.
On August 16, Seungri struck his signature pose in front of their Gyeonggi do branch and welcomed patrons to taste why his noodles are so popular.

Its actually not a big surprise that Seungri has become a very successful businessman because he is very focused whenever he sets a goal in mind. In a recent episode of Little Old Boy, he was casually having a chat with host Sangmin at a noodle house when he suddenly struck up a conversation with the foreigner sitting next to him in English, asking why the foreigner liked eating the ramen at the place. A little while later, he asks the Japanese person sitting next to Sangmin the same thing in Japanese. He even ropes in the chef into the conversation. He carries on with his conversations in English, Japanese and Korean (with Sangmin) simultaneously all while taking note of the feedback from these customers so that he could further improve the food and the service in his establishments. That’s truly amazing. Daebak!
