On November 20th, with early Christmas carols ringing on the streets in Korea, 3 YG members and 3 exchange students visited Namsan Tower located in Yongsan-gu, Seoul. Since it was a time when the coronavirus had increased again, we never took off our masks except when we took pictures. In fact, the official name of Namsan Tower is Namsan Seoul Tower, which Koreans usually call Namsan Tower....
October 13, Sunday, we had a programme called KCC (Korean Cooking Class) at the Korean Food Culture Centre in Jongno. About 20 participants gathered and the programme took about three hours. We met at the front gate of Yonsei University’s Sinchon campus at 3 p.m. and went to Eulji Statio. The Centre has a nice interior and neat props, which naturally leads to interest in Korean cuisine. The staff gave us Korean traditional snacks; we enjoyed eating.
Chef Lee Yoon-sun, who studied Korean food for more than 20 years, gave us a demonstration first. We were able to learn the recipe quickly for such kind demonstration. I was surprised at the chef’s skillful cooking.
After the training, we started cooking too. Our chef gave us feedback and helped us cook. I was bit clumsy, but it was such a fun.
Finally, we made bulgogi and bean sprouts and ate it. It was a wonderful experience. Foreign friends also said Korean food is delicious.
I also had an interview with the chef: she told me that she wants to advertise more about Korean food abroad, which is the healthiest food in the world. I hope Korean food will become widely known to the world in the future.
