[Delicious SEOUL Story] OIMUCHIM, GGO JI, BIBIM GUKSU

[Delicious SEOUL Story] OIMUCHIM, GGO JI, BIBIM GUKSU

Introduction:
Hi everyone, We are Sharon Li and Lillian Tsang. We are originally from Hong Kong, but we are living in Los Angeles, California, the United States. Both of us have passion for learning how to make Korean food and fall in love with the culture. Last year, we joined the contest of Delicious Seoul Story. (Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN-so8aV3us) Although we did not win the contest, we had a wonderful time of making the Korean and Chinese fusion dish, porridge/juk. This year, we are grateful to come back to join the contest again. We are going to make three of our favourite Korean dishes including OIMUCHIM, GGO JI and Bibim Guksu with a little bit fusion gimmick. Thanks Seoul Metropolitan Government, Seoul Tourism Organization, and Asiana Airlines for organizing this contest. Last but not least, thanks for our great judges! Thank you for viewing and liking our video.

Theme:

It is because we love Korean sport, we wear red color clothes to support Korean national soccer team (BE THE REDS!). Also, instead of Korean pop song, we chose “Dokdo is Korean Land” to show that Korean individuals have strong nationalism, and they love their own people and lands.

Dishes:

  • Traditional Korean Side Dish (OIMUCHIM),
  • Chuseok Dish (GGO JI),
  • Fusion Dish (Bibim Guksu: American spaghetti with Korean ingredients and spicy dressing)

Background music:
Dokdo is Korean Land
