Tim Hortons HQ didn't find it amusing, obviously.

While Timmies is "thrilled" to learn people love their product on the other side of the world, they are looking to take legal action against "Tim House".

β€œAlthough we are not currently operating in South Korea, we will continue to take the necessary steps to protect our trademarks,” the director of public affairs said.

Meanwhile, more photos have emerged of the brilliant knockoff. Here's the banner glowing softly in the hushful night.

Here's their sign beckoning Koreans to touch overcooked coffee to their lips, burning every shallow of their sorry mouths.

And their familiar sign, that says "hey, I know you're too lazy to go anywhere else, so come in for the coffee, stay for the 50 timbits you'll regret and feel sadness for yourself later". Come to Tim's House.
