    Hello Everyone,

    I went to Korea to teach English (illegally) a few years back and got caught. Although I only spent two weeks teaching, I spent nearly a year in prison. Since returning to the United States I miss many tastes from the Korean prison diet, such as soybean stew.


    Hello Everyone,

    I’m sorry to hear that! 1 year is too long period. : (

    Anyway, welcome to my website! I will do my best to provide a good and easy recipe.



    I know you had a cooking class at Whole Foods. In fact, I tried to enroll in it, but it was already full. I hope you have another class soon.



    Hello Mrs.Maangchi…

    Thanks for show about korean food..





    I just stumbled onto you videos about a week ago. I was first introduced to Korean food by some friends from college and have loved it ever since. I have found Korean recipes in the past but some of them where to confusing for me to follow. I love your videos. They make cooking Korean so much easier for me. I have really enjoyed trying different recipes! Thanks a bunch for all your hard work!!



    Ahn nyoung ha say yo! Maangchi! You brighten my day! ^o^ My name is Katie. I was born in Korea, and adopted by an American family in Oklahoma at the age of one. The first time I tried Korean food I was 19 years old!!.. and i loved it! I love to create all types of food.. Italian.. Thai.. Vietnamese.. American.. (However, my love affair with cooking didn’t begin until i was about 22.. I am now 27.) ..for years I tried Korean cookbooks and recipes online.. but UNTIL i found your site a year ago my “Korean cooking” was terrible! I just want to say THANK YOU SOOOO Much!!!

    my Korean cooking skills would be lost with you!

    with love~

    Katie <3



    Anyunghaseyo and greetings from the UK :-) !!

    My name is Becki, and I’m English. When I was 18yrs old I worked in a Christian counselling center for a year, and three of my roommates were Korean. They made me bulgogi…I thought I’d died and gone to heaven!

    Three years later I embarked on a round-the-world trip, and was supposed to visit my best friend in Seoul for three weeks at the end of my trip before going home. The first morning I woke up in her apartment however, I felt so warm and welcome and so at home, that within my first week there I found two jobs as an English teacher, and stayed for five months…the best five months of my life :-)

    The food…oh, the food! I fell in love with almost all of it. People kept trying to feed me fried chicken and sandwiches because I’m from the west, but I assured everybody that I only wanted Korean food.

    When I came home, I had serious withdrawal, but when I came to University as a mature student I met loads and loads of Koreans who love to cook for me! Last year, as part of my MA in Ethnomusicology (studying Korean church music) I got to go back to Seoul for a month, and had the best Easter ever :-) I discovered hodaek this time as well…oh my goodness, it’s so tasty!

    I love Korea…I love Koreans…I love Korean music…and I LOOOOVE Korean food! I’m so excited to find this website, as I’ve never been very good at making anything other than kimpap. I think this is the start of something good :-)

    Love and blessings x x x



    Anyunghaseyo!!! Hey, Maangchi! My name is Allison and i discovered korean food through korean dramas. The food looked sooo good in the drama that i made my mom (She’s a trooper for trying new things)go out to a korean noodle house in New Jersey.

    I know live in North Carolina and there are only a few korean restaurants. So i decided to try cooking korean food. So far my my brothers and parents enjoy our korean dinner fridays.

    Right now i live in my university’s dorm so my korean cooking has been put on hold till this summer when i get back home.

    Thanks to your videos i’ve been improving! I really appreciate all the hard work you put in to sharing the korean culture!

    With Love,


    P.S. Hopefully the next time I’m in New York i can take one of your cooking classes. They look like a lot of fun!



    hi peeps~

    my parents are korean and came to germany about 35~40 years ago. so i was born here (and admittedly my korean suuuux… so english recipes are awesome haha)…

    first time i found this site was when i searched for a good kimchi recipe… obv. i have eaten kimchi all my life… but i always wanted to try it myself. Turns out that it’s not really that hard to do (there seems to be some kind of “kimchi is so hard to make”-myth lol), but just veeery tiring hahaha~ ;D awesome awesome! :D after that I started trying jajangmyun, dukboggi, bibimbap, etc etc.. ^__^

    Thanks so much! :D

    Hello from San Francisco! My name is Joan and ever since I’ve been off work I’m enjoying the Korean Dramas and Korean Dishes. I’m filipino and enjoy all vegetarian dishes. I really like (bindaeduk)(kimchi)and so much more. This is great site!



    Hello!! I haven’t had a chance to properly introduce myself… Well, my name is Courtney, and I love Korean culture!! From their fashion, to music, to their dramas, and most importantly, their food!! I used to live in California and I had a friend who’s mom was Korean and she would sometimes give us Korean food such as bulgogi and kimbap and they were sooo delicious :]

    Then my family moved to Ohio and I met another girl who’s mother was Korean (what a coincidence hahaha!!), and her mother would make us Korean food as well, such as seaweed soup, japchae, bulgogi, and kimbap. I really wanted to learn how to make these for myself, so I could have them whenever I felt like, and that’s when I found some of Maangchi’s videos on Youtube!! I was so excited she had all the recipes I wanted to make, as well as more recipes I wanted to try!! I’ve tried so many of the recipes and they’ve turned out really tasty and my older sister (the only one in my family who’s willing to try Korean food) loves them as well!!

    So anyways, thank you for taking the time to make all these videos, Maangchi, they’re great and I can’t wait to try more!! :]
