A Little Love for Maangchi

It looks like our favorite YouTube Korean cooking diva Maangchi has been getting some press lately, in both Korean and English.

Maangchi shares:

Dakshana Bascaramurty wrote about me in The Globe and Mail last week, which is Canada’s biggest newspaper. Ever since then I’ve been getting so many interview requests from newspaper reporters and TV and radio broadcasting companies.

All major Korean newspapers and internet news portals have been reporting on the Globe and Mail article for days. I’m surprised at the tremendously powerful effect of the Globe and Mail newspaper!

These are the articles that I found on the internet (hehe, sorry, you can’t read it because it is written in Korean, but at least you can see the photo of my face on the kimchi video):

A little trivia about her I didn’t know. “Maangchi” was her name when she played online games, so she used that for her cooking videos.

  1. I was contacted for an interview from the same reporter. I guessed that the focus of the article was about Maangchi. I guessed right! : )

    BTW, Am I your second favorite YouTube cooking diva? LOL!

  2. She deserves whatever press she gets. She has the best Korean blog on the internet. It’s purely a how to cook site which includes: videos for almost all common korean recipes with text and translations to accompany. I’ve used her blog for over a year now and have made her gamjatang, sundubu jigae, bibimbap, cabbage doenjangjigae, songpyeon, dakgamjeong, and maybe a few others.

    Joe, you have a great blog too, and gotta send my props out to you for endurance alone, but it’s not organized very well for recipes. This blog, I think is better for general Korean food information.

  3. Sorry I didn’t see your recipe link underneath the social networking icons. Tell me you just added that. I remember last Spring I had to pore through years of old blog posts to find a recipe you covered. Well done old man. You’re still the champ

    • No problem, Danny. I’m well aware of the disorganization. The blog’s gotten much bigger than it was originally designed for. I’m working on a redesign that hopefully will make it a little easier to navigate. For recipes, it really was MyKoreanKitchen that was good, but now we have Aeri’s Kitchen. That’s a good one. And our own Tammy has Koreanfornian Cooking. I just love watching Maangchi’s rise. She’s great. She’s got the personality. I’ve been watching her and Steamy Kitchen from the beginning, and I’m just a big cheerleader for them.
