What should I name my new cooking show?

By Maangchi

Hello everybody!

Some of my readers have already contacted me about my global cooking show and invited me to their homes to cook. ooh whoo! Exciting!


I’m still in the planning stage for the show. I’m going to post details soon and let you know how to join it, but one thing I can tell you is that filming will probably start in September or October when everyone has finished their summer vacations.

I will travel around the world and cook with my viewers. I pitched this idea to YouTube in March for the NextUp program, and they chose me to join the program. Being chosen as one of the 25 YouTube Nextup creators and joining the creators’ camp at Google has been the most fascinating experience that has happened to me so far this year!

But this year hasn’t finished yet. I’ll have more fascinating and exciting experiences when I meet as many my readers and my YouTube audience as I can, all around the world!

But please help me choose a name for this show. Here are some ideas so far. Do you have any other creative names?

  • Maangchi’s Global Cooking Show?
  • Planet Maangchi?
  • Maangchi’s Travel Cooking Show?
  • Maangchi, Gabsida! (Gabsida 갑시다 means “let’s go” in English)


In my experience, the more people who are brainstorming ideas, the better.

If you have a good idea for a name, please write it in the comments. If you like one of my ideas above, or one of someone else’s idea, write a comment about it: “I like xxxxxx’s suggestion!”

    Hello Maangchi,
    Besides “Maangchi’s Menu”, I also Like:
    “Korean Flavor”
    “Korean Spice”.
    Good Luck with your new show!

    I’m not too fond of titles with words like “global” because they tend to make people think of boring corporate businesses.

    “Hi Everybody! Maangchi Cooks with You.”

    I came up with this idea because your videos wouldn’t be the same without your cheerful greeting.

    I really like “Maangchi, Gabsida!”
    But also as I was reading the blog… I thought of some suggestions.

    “Maangchi’s World” / “Maangchi-ui Segye”
    “Maangchi Mingles”
    “Maangchi on the Move”
    “Cooking Korean: With Maangchi”
    “Korean Cookin’: With Maangchi”
    “Miles with Maanghi”
    “만국의 망치” xDDD ?? Would that even be right?

    Those were just a few of my ideas. xD
