Hoppang (호빵) is a type of convenience jjinppang (steamed bread). It is a warm snack sold throughout Korea, typically filled with red bean paste. Hoppang was a brand name for the ready-to-eat jjinppang developed by Samlip in 1970, which combined the onomatopoeia ho, ho (the sound for blowing on hot jjinppang) and "bread" in Korean, ppang.[2] The brand name soon became the generic name for convenience jjinppang, often filled with sweeter and smoother red bean paste.[3] Hoppang is also commonly sold stuffed with vegetables and meat, pizza toppings, pumpkin, buldak, and so on.[1]

Steamer- or microwave-ready hoppang is often sold packaged in multiples at supermarkets and grocery stores, while many convenience stores sells warm, steamed hoppang throughout the winter months, in cylindrical heating cabinets designed to steam hoppang and keep them warm.[2]
