Video: Spiders and Country Bulgogi

Namyangju, east of Seoul. Picked some strawberries, visited a spider museum, had some amazing bulgogi and not-so-amazing sweet potato spoon pizza. This package took egregiously long to film–around 15 hours. I was a bit miffed. I liked the country restaurant. Took a nap while the DP was taking his sweet...

Video: Peaceful Spot in the City

I’ve discovered that my little pieces for Arirang’s “Korea Today” are on YouTube. I’ll go ahead and post them. This is the most recent one. We went to the neighborhood of Guro in southern Seoul. It’s a gritty neighborhood that surprisingly has a few oases. Honestly, the sashimi I eat in the clip is sekkoshi, which I really don’t like. It’s the bones and cartilage of the fish, which I...

Must Watch: “Choose Your World”

There are many reasons why I like this video. It’s entertaining. It’s for a good cause. But most of all, it’s local. Yes. Can you believe this was made right here in Seoul? If you look closely you’ll catch a glimpse of legendary expat Nevada Rhodes (the blonde guy on the scooter) and the ravishing Jyoung-ah Kim (pulling some cart in the background). That’s your first hint. This was also made by a small...

MUST SEE: Korean food documentary “Savouring Korea – The Taste of Home”

London foodies are already familiar with Joo Lee’s Korrito, a modern Korean pop-up and streetside stand. With the help of UK Korean food purveyor Korea Foods and backers on Kickstarter, Joo traveled to Korea to make a three-part documentary on her Korean food roots and how the cuisine is getting popular in the UK. The segments are around nine minutes each. I make a cameo towards the end of the second one, “Seoul...
