CHUNCHEON, July 15 (Korea Bizwire) — A social media message that claims the existence of a dental mask claw machine in Chuncheon, Gyeonggi Province is drawing interest from citizens there.
The message titled “Never Knew This Kind of World Would Come” was uploaded together with a photo of the machine. This message garnered interest from local citizens who left many comments on the post.
In a situation where the nation’s public mask provisioning system was terminated despite the prolonged coronavirus pandemic, the dental mask claw machine instantly became a hot topic.
The dental mask claw machine is actually installed in front of a sticker shop in the Myeongdong district of Chuncheon.
Inside the claw machine are packages containing two dental masks each.
A sign affixed to the front of the claw machine says, “No Lose Nor Draw, Just Win!”
On top of the machine another sign reads, “Just 1,000 won(US$0.83) for two dental masks.”
The sign also claimed that the dental masks feature a 3-filter structure, embedded wire, soft texture and an MB filter.
Considering that 60 dental masks currently sell for about 10,000 won through online shopping malls, the machine is expected to be profitable even if it guarantees that users will win.
