Venture boom (that went)
|In a post couple of days ago about highly educated people with white-collar work experience seeking to make their living with street trading, there was someone selling 1000 won mandu (dumplings) who once had worked in a venture (pench'ô / bencheo) business. It was kind of a telling example of what happened to the venture hype. (Had it been pungôppang/pungeobbang instead of mandu, the contrast to venture business would have been even more poignant.)|

Some time ago I did a newspaper article search in KINDS about the appearance of the word venture (벤처), limiting the search only on Chosun Ilbo. It gives some idea of the "venture business" excitement a few years ago. Note that some of the appearances of the term do not refer to "venture business."
