Maangchi and readers on Korean TV

By Maangchi

On March 12, 2012 “Science Cafe” (과학카페) on the Korean Broadcasting Company (KBS) aired the show “Korean food meets science” which featured some of  my New York readers and myself. The 45 minute show explains how Korean food is getting popular and is benefiting people’s health. The above clip is only the part that includes myself and my readers.

We held a small meetup at Gang Suh restaurant on 32nd street in Manhattan on Jan. 26, 2012, which they filmed for this episode. We had bibimbap together and talked about Korean food. In the video, my translations are the words in quotation marks. Enjoy watching the video!


From left: Nikki, Ryan, Laura, Kristi, me, Elfreda, and Melinda. The sign I’m holding was made by Elfreda. : ) Everybody came during work hours because it was filmed during the day on a Thursday. Thank you for coming on such a short notice, everybody!

Joon had to leave early, so I asked the restaurant to prepare food for him first. Are you familiar with Joon? He is featured as a guest cook in one of my videos. : )
