  1. Starting with the sauce: in a medium saucepan, saute the chilies, ginger, and garlic in butter. Cook until fragrant.
  2. Stir in the gochujang, ketchup, vinegar, soy sauce and bring to a boil. Stir in the honey and brown sugar. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until thickened. Set aside.
  3. Now for the wings: heat 4 to 6 cups of vegetable oil in a deep pot to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a plate with paper towels.
  4. Whisk together salt, pepper, baking powder, and garlic powder.
  5. Season the wings and toss them in a baggie with corn starch to coat them.
  6. Fry the wings for about 15 minutes or until the skin is crispy. Drain them on the paper towel lined plate.
  7. Increase the frying oil to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Deep fry the wings again for another 7 to 8 minutes or until they are fully cooked and golden brown colored.
  8. Remove wings and place them in a large bowl. Pour prepared sauce over the wings to thoroughly coat. Put finished wings on a presentation plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Garnish with sliced onions.
