First of all, the popularity of the Barbecue caught attention. 
 
There are three new barbecue restaurants have been selected on the list. 
 
The interesting thing is they all are the barbecue restaurants, but the ingredients are different. 
 
Gyoyang Shiksa especially serves Sapporo style of lamb chop, Geumdwaegji Sikdang especially serves pork and Semigye especially serves spicy stir-fried chicken.
 
Among these restaurants, the 'Geumdwaegii Sikdang' is not only famous for its 'bones attached' pork belly but also for the restaurant that celebrities and CEO of Shinsegae Group, Jeong YongJin comes frequently. Semigye is a restaurant famous for spicy stir-fried chicken, which was recently introduced as a comedian Lee Youngja's favorite restaurant list and caught attention.

Because the weather became colder, the number of beef-bone soup restaurants and gukbap(rice soup) restaurants have increased. 
 
Park Chanil chef's Gwanghwamun Gukbap(Pork and rice soup) and Habjeong-Og(Beef-bone soup) which emerged as the new popular beef-bone soup restaurant have been newly named on the list and are ranging with existing popular restaurants such as Daesung House(ox knee soup)·Mapo O beef soup(seolleongtang/ stock soup of bone and stew meat)·Imun Seolnongtang(seolleongtang/ stock soup of bone and stew meat)·Hadonggwan(Beef-bone soup).

Noodle restaurants and dumpling restaurants are also gaining popularity. Including Jung Changwook chef's Kumsan Noodle Factory(Tantan noodle), Oreno Ramen(Ramen) and Seoul's representative old restaurant Yurimmyeon(Buckwheat noodles), dumpling restaurants such as Bongsan-Og(Dumpling) and Sandong Gyojagwan(Chinese) are newly listed on the Bib Gourmand list. 
 
Meanwhile, Emoi(Pho) and mishmash which caught hot attention by naming on the Bib Gourmand list last year, were excluded from this year's list. 
 
Food critic Kang Jiyoung evaluated, "Restaurants were usually focused on certain foods such as Kalguksu(handmade chopped noodles) or Naengmyun. However this year, types of food have diversified by Barbecue, Beef-bone soup, and dumpling. Also, this year, diverse restaurants have been selected on the list such as old restaurants, newly opened restaurants but also authorized hot local restaurants and popular restaurants on SNS".
