Bogio originally started as a branch of the famous Haeundae Geumsubokguk in Sinsa-dong, but it later parted ways with Geumsubokguk and reopened under its own name, Bogio. They may no longer be related to the original restaurant, but it is still frequented by drinkers looking to soothe their stomachs after a hangover. Most of the dishes and service are also still the same—the oldest entrée of Geumsuboguk, hot pot boiled bokguk (boiled puffer fish soup) is as good as ever. Bogio handles various subspecies of puffer fish, including brown-backed toadfish, yellowfin puffer fish, and live puffer fish; both farmed and wild puffer fish are used and the menu comprises a wide price range. As it is open 24 hours, many young people from nearby clubs, bars, and street cart bars visit to soothe their stomachs after a long night of drinking.
