KT&G said the cigarette contains 20 percent cigar leaf from South America iand Cuba. The company said the filter has a capsule that provides a different taste for smokers.

The packages come in two looks: brown and white.

“It takes up roughly 30 percent of the domestic cigarette market.

The retail price of the cigarette is 4,500 won ($4.04).
