Korean Fried Chicken (Yangnyeom tongdak: 양념통닭)

This morning I was surprised to see that my video for “Korean fried chicken” aka yangnyeom-tongdak has 2 million views on YouTube! This makes me incredibly happy, because I started making cooking videos to share my passion, and it seems to be working. This video didn’t get 2 million views quickly like a viral video, it happened over a long period of time, as people made it and liked it and shared it with their friends and family and word of mouth spread. For a long time my original kimchi video was my #1 video, but eventually yangnyeom-tongdak views overnumbered.

It makes me wonder how many people in the world actually tasted my chicken at a party or gathering. It’s pretty much impossible for me to calculate. I celebrated by making fried chicken with my own recipe!

Thanks to you, my faithful readers! You guys are awesome! Stay tuned, I have tons more recipes to share and will keep doing it for years and years, as long as I am conscious! : )
