Why do Koreans eat fried chicken with beer?

Today, fried chicken is one of the most popular dishes in Korea. With the introduction of cooking oil in Korea in 1971, chicken and oil were plentiful, which created an environment where people could eat more chicken. At this time, chicken and beer were sold together, which eventually led to the creation of chimaek.
