Koreafornian Cooking will star in a food-culture documentary on San Francisco Bay–area Korean cable television station, set to air in late October.

San Jose, Calif.-based KEMS-TV broadcasts on cable channel 197 in most of the San Francisco Bay area. Beside original Korean-language programming, the channel also airs Arirang K-pop shows and MBC dramas.

KEMS documentary talent and crew

KEMS Rosa Kim contacted me in June via YouTube about being part of a Korean food documentary. Each of the five 30-minute episodes in the Rising Korea series covers a different topic. Korean cuisine is the theme of the first episode, “Korean Cuisine Is Coming,” in which I’ll be appearing.

The episode includes visits to a couple of South Bay–area restaurants and a Korean home cooking demonstration and discuss the growing popularity of Korean cuisine in the San Francisco Bay Area and around the world.

My Korean TV debut is scheduled to air in the San Francisco Bay area on Friday, Oct. 25, at 9:30 p.m. and be rebroadcast Monday, Oct. 28, at the same time.
