Wonjojipbul Gomjangeo Gijang Oegajip opened its doors in March, 1991, commercializing grilled eel over a straw fire. It became the inspiration for other grilled eel restaurants to be established in the neighborhood, building the "Grilled Eel Alley" in Gongsu Village. Other than its specialty, grilled eel over a straw fire, the restaurant also features yangnyeom gui (marinated grilled eel), sogeum gui (grilled salted eel), and maeuntang (spicy fish stew), which are available for take-out.

The restaurant was first aired on the TV show “The Nation Now” in 1994. It then began to build a reputation for its delicious menu and was on various food-related TV shows such as "TV Morning Wide," "Hometown Tasty Road," "I am Going to my Hometown," "Live Broadcasting Today," “Credible Lifestyle Tips," “Infinite Ground Q." “Video Jockey Special Forces” and “EBS Korea Travel- Gijang Region."
