What an exciting and informative site this is! I'm learning so much from Maangchi-noona and from the knowledgable and super nice users like you all!
I'm from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and while I'm not Korean by heritage, I've fallen in love with Korean cooking and Korean music (K-pop!).
A good friend of mine introduced me to Korean food a few years ago... back then, I never even considered eating Korean because I never liked spicy food. But I went, and I had my first bibimbap with gochujang... I downed the gochujang like ketchup and ended up finishing half the bottle!
That was three years ago... now, I eat spicy food with gusto (all thanks to Korean food grooming me), and I'm starting to make my own Korean food! I hope to master making kimbap, seafood pancake, and garlic potatoes one day, but for now, I'll stick with the tried and true!
Until next time!
PS. If anyone wants to talk about K-pop with me, hit me up! I LOOOOVVEEE K-pop!!!! (Favourite groups and singers, you ask? Big Bang, 2NE1, DBSK/TVXQ, Son Dambi, T-Ara, f(x), BoA, Davichi... it goes on and on!) I always put on my K-pop list when I'm making Korean food... it just gets me that much more hungry!
