Korean restaurants with German names ?

Here in North Jersey, we've got several Korean restaurants with names like "Baden-Baden" and "Heidleburg" and I gotta wonder, what gives? Anyone know what the connection is?
Too cheap to buy new signs?
Everyone in Northern Virginia is raving about Hong Kong Palace, once the home of yummy but mild dumplings and noodles, now home of unbelievably spicy authentic Szechuan. And it's clear that changing the signage was just a bit much when the new owners bought the place.
I know that's not exactly as dramatic as the disjoint between Korea and Germany, but it's something.
I think you're on to something. Many of the korean pastries available at my local korean grocer are from a place called "The German Bakery".
The German names on Korean Restaurants are Korean version of a German pub.Many of these places serve just beer and hard liquor but no korean alcohol. The food is also Korean pub food such as fried chickens ,french fries and Korean bar snacks.Baden Baden been to the Manhattan one many times is very popular with Korean-Americans and has loud music and very good chicken.
