      Hello Maangchi! My name is Maurice, I am a lexicographer and I am living in West LA. When I taught English in Koreatown, my Korean students would bring all this delicious food to “pot luck” parties. I never had such a mix of flavors and textures before. and the many nearby Korean markets would have food sampling, especially around New Years–with so many different exotic things to taste and enjoy. I discovered tasty side dishes like fern brake, perilla leaves, platycodon, spicy shredded squid, pickled white radish, glazed lotus root, cucumber kimchi, stir-fried anchovies, and never thought I would one day be making any of it.
      Well, for a party with a Korean style barbecue Saturday, I am making it all. All of my favorites–but I will say “me and Maangchi made it”, because without your website, and your recipes, and your delightful videos, I wouldn’t be making any of it.
      You are also helping my Korean–not that my Korean will ever be good. I read Japanese, and working in Koreatown, I wanted to read the Korean I saw all around me. Watching your videos, and hearing your pronunciation of the words has given me a lot more confidence in speaking Korean as well.
      I am so glad YouTube recommended you to me–now I am recommending you to my friends.
      And Hello to all of Maangchi’s followers and readers around the world. We share the same tastes.
      Peace and love,
      mg

      Maangchi really is special. She is like a friend. And she teaches Korean cooking so well. I am a fan too!
