I'm confused! Are you?
Kogi BBQ has been around in Los Angeles for several years now as one of the phenom food trucks that cater to foodies in Southern California. The graphics, logo, color scheme (black, yellow, red) is very conspicuous. See the photo, above, for example, of the Kogi BBQ logo (from their U.S. Federal trademark registration), as well as three photos below of one of the Kogi BBQ trucks on location in early May 2011 in W.L.A., taken by the undersigned admitted fan of Kogi BBQ.
And then this morning as I was hopping about Twitter, I noticed a Bull Kogi twitter page which featured a food truck with the name Bull Kogi in upper and lower case lettering and featuring a color scheme of black, yellow and red.

Coincidence? What do you think?
We will be updating this blog post with further remarks, so please stay tuned.
