Like Seedless Watermelon? Thank a Korean.

Yep -- you guess it! It was a Korean by the name of 우장춘 who developed the seedless watermelon.

Dr. Woo had many notable accomplishments - I would encourage readers to check out the wiki article

우장춘!?
I've never heard about him.
Is he the inventor of "seedless watermelon"?

Do you know him, 유쾌한 씨?
팀씨, 조지씨, 줄리아씨, and... 유쾌한씨.
cheers,
