New section on my website devoted to fans

By Maangchi

Hi, everyone!

Thank you for leaving your introductions here in the forum!

I love to read your fascinating stories about what made you interested in Korean food and Korean culture. I didn’t mean to teach Korean culture when I started this website, I just wanted to share my Korean recipes. But now I see that everybody has his or her own touching story! Some of your introductions make me emotional.

I feel my cooking website is becoming about more than just food. Thank you very much for making me feel rewarded about what I’m doing. Every morning the first thing I do is turn on my computer and read your messages! When I read them I’m excited and nervous at the same time.

You’d be surprised to see how many emails, messages, and comments I get everyday through so many channels!

I think it’s time for me to organize the contents of my readers’ and viewers’ introductions.

I don’t want to lose your precious words!  Can I say you are my “fans?” I’m afraid to say so because it sounds like I’m full of myself! But the phrase “my viewers and/or readers” is too strange and too long to use as title.

I am going to make another section on my website: “Meet Maangchi’s Fans.” I just want to feature some of my readers and viewers, to show my respect for you and to show that I consider every single word as important to me.

Also, I think it would be interesting to see readers and viewers displayed by the country they live in. I get emails from all over the world, so I want to show my website visitors that they might not be alone in cooking Korean food, no matter where they live.

I hope that they would contact each other and share information about Korean food and ingredients in their community. This is already happening on my forum among people in the Netherlands, something I never expected, maybe this new page can help other people too.

You’re always welcome to introduce yourself on this forum, but this new section will be more like an interview. I’ll ask you some questions and you can simply answer them and email them to me at with some photos!  Check my most recent blog “Joyce Yu.” Your answers can be as long or as short as you feel comfortable.

Send me a few photos of Korean dishes that you made by following my recipes, then I will post the questions and your answers along with the photos.

Please also send a photo of yourself, or a photo of you and your family members or friends together eating the dish you made would be cool, too!

The questions:

  1. What is your name and where do you live?
  2. What do you do and how many family members do you have?
  3. How often do you cook Korean food following my recipes?
  4. What are your favorite Korean dishes? Choose 3, please!
  5. What’s your best Korean dish, the one that everybody compliments you on when you make it?

Thank you! I hope to hear from you soon!
