After the sudden closure of two Tim Ho Wan outlets, Korean BBQ chain Bulgogi Brothers announced on Facebook that it has ceased operations in Malaysia

The restaurant chain - which specialises in Korean cuisine and bulgogi marinated barbequed meat - posted an image yesterday with a caption that reads, "All good things must come to an end. We would like to thank all our customers throughout the years for your unwavering support. It's been an absolute pleasure to serve all of you."

However, the chain didn't state as to when it would be closing down.

Bulgogi Brothers first entered the Malaysian market back in 2012. It opened its first outlet in Paradigm Mall before expanding to Pavilion, eCurve, and Mid Valley Megamall.

A quick search on the Internet and the chain's Facebook page revealed that three outlets have closed down for quite some time, with only the Paradigm Mall outlet continuing to operate.

While no reason was given by Bulgogi Brothers Malaysia on the closure, this is not the only Korean chain that has closed down in Malaysia recently. Back in May, French-Korean bakery Tous les Jours abruptly shuttered all four outposts in Malaysia.
