Leaving for Boston

By Maangchi

Hi, everybody,

I’m leaving for Boston soon this morning.
One of my long time blog readers, my website supporter, and Harvard film student Paul Whang invited me to act in his film. I met Paul about 1½ years ago at my LA meetup. He volunteered to be my cameraman at that time.


Recently I got an email from him. He asked  if I’d ever considered acting! He said Harvard film students in their 4th year traditionally make a short movie for their final. The title of his movie is “Dakbokkeumtang” (Korean spicy chicken dish).  : )

“There is a character in the movie who is a Korean old woman starting to lose her memory!”  He said: “..I think you would be perfect for the role!” Haha!

I answered, “Sure, cool!”

So this morning I’m going to Boston and will come back tomorrow night.

Who said friends that you meet on the internet can’t be your real friends! I like to support Paul as he did to me! Besides, acting as a very old and unfashionable woman sounds like too much fun! : )

I like to let you know this exciting news! I’ll tell you about the filming and the movie when I get back!

    I hope the movie will be available online when it’s finished… or maybe we’ll see Maangchi at the next film festival! :)

    Oh my goodness! It’s too bad you’re not in town longer, it would be fun to meet. I’ve really enjoyed making your recipes at home! Good luck with the filming!

      Thank you!
      When Paul’s movie is presented, I may go there again, then I will let you know through my blog if I plan my meetup in Boston. Stay tuned! This time, I could not stay longer due to my busy schedule.
