    Hi! I received the delightful box of yummy ready made meals today! I was so excited to open the box. Here is a picture of the contents and there was even a little pouch containing a webcam cover, a Maangchi sticker, a pop out cell phone holder, and a ‘thank you’ post card inside of a lovely envelope with a red heart seal. I was so tickled. This is my very first time winning anything since winning a small order of McDonald’s french fries from a scratch off sticker when I was in elementary school. Thank you so much!
    As I was trying to load the picture, I am getting an error message that the file is too large. :(

      Just discovered your YouTube channel looking for korean cold coffee recipe. I was addict to that beverage when I visited Korea on summer.
      I love Korean food and will follow you and try to make your recipes. Hope I can win the meals to discover new flavors and keep giving my wife new flavors as well. She loves corean food, her favorite food is 김치 and 떡볶이. ㅅ.ㅅ

    This looks so good and tasty. The video makes me hungry. No Korean food shops here so winning this would be a real treat.

    My dinner routine has been cooking Korean Foods meanwhile watching Maangchi’s videos. There is no single dish that Maangchi made not delicious. I have been made tons of them, even forwarded those great recipes to my parents. As a Chinese living in New York, Asian cuisine is still my go-to meal, ever since I followed Maangchi around March, I restocked lots of Korean goods, from earth-ware pot to hot peppers flakes. Love you Maangchi, love korean dishes!!!!

    Maangchi, you said have to click on the link to activate it. I tried a few times no link. Not in spam also. Why?

    I am so happy for being a part of this generous contest. I love Korean food , but unfortunately there are not many places around me to get some. I would be over the moon to win one of the boxes.

      I’m so excited about this contest. I was adopted from Seoul, South Korea when I was 6 months old. I love to watch your videos and learn your recipes. I moved to North Carolina and where we live we do not have a Korean restaurant or market. It’s very hard to find Korean items. As a Korean adoptee I so badly wish I could be around my culture more, especially the food.

        I’ve been missing my home country Korea for a long time but Covid-19 happened and haven’t been able to go back home. I miss my parents so much but Mangchi, you have always encouraged me a lot with your bright energy and your recipes are amazing, and I’ve tried to follow your videos on YouTube as much as I can with limited ingredients.. I hope I can get this meal packet and I’m sure it will encourage a lot and I will feel like I’m home.
