What BTS Members ate ' In the SOOP' Ep.1 &2

Did you wonder what Korean food BTS members are cooking and eating in the series ‘In the SOOP’?

I am here for you if you are not familiar with Korean food! Follow me through this! ‘In the SOOP’ K-Food post series! (1~8).

Let’s just begin with Kookie.😚

V asks for wine. 🍷

Jin wants a fish tank with fishes for sushi. 🐟…….?😱🔪

(Did Lil meow’s jaw drop hearing Jin?😆😆😆)

For JK, food is not an important matter. He wants a heavy punching sandbag. 

(JK when he heard it’s already there waiting.)

The arrival!

Seven men arrived at the camp where they will spend the next 7 days!

Such a beautiful, peaceful place in Chuncheon Korea.


Oh, oh just before arrival, when they were driving to get here V said this.

V : “Can I get a gimbap on the way?”

Did anyone wonder about gimbap Taehyung wanted to eat?

It will be introduced in detail in episode 5!

Okay, back on the post, 

Jin got his big fish tank like a sushi house. 😂

On one side, they got enough fresh ssam leaves growing.

*Ssam is also is introduced in In the SOOP episode 5!

And on the shelf, all types of alcohol are ready.

I’m guessing Taehyung’s wine is there too.

Are we going to see drunken BTS? (YESSS PLEASE~)

More of what’s prepared in the camp, 

There is a giant tower of goodies!! 

Just like a store moved into the house. 

This caught Mindy unnie’s eyes. BTS likes to ‘yam-yam’ on treats very much. 🤣

I’m just gonna introduce some of these quickly.

These are what I recommend, and also I remember seeing members eating.

This snack is called 칸쵸 ‘Kancho’.

JK was eating while monitoring his performance at BTS episodes.


🐰Jung bunny is nibbling on the 쵸코하임 ‘Choco Heim Choco Hazelnut’ here. 😆❤

The packaging changed very recently from left to right. 

Okay, this is Jin’s lips and the name is 마이구미 ‘My Gummy’ by Orion. 😙😙😙

Some K-armys see the resemblance of the ‘My Gummy’ peach flavor and Jin’s plump lips. I just wanted to point this out to you too because I agree!!!!

(by the way, one in the tower of goodies is a different flavor, orange. ‘My Gummy’ comes in different flavors.)

[In the SOOP] Korean food ep.1

The first meal- Jjapaguri

After a short look around, members are finally having their first meal of the day.

They chose to eat outside where the view is just amazing! 

Today’s chef is Jungkook! 

Jjapaguri is a mixture of two different instant ramen. [Chapagetti+Neoguri] 

Jjapaguri is like a spicier jjapagetti, someone first created this recipe, then it got viral in a second. 

If you have seen Bong Joon-ho’s ‘Parasite’, it was translated as ramdong in the movie too.

(Jungkook tips in the episode say not to add the dry ingredients.)

Members ate with chopped steak on the top.

Both BTS members and the movie ‘Parasite’ had jjapaguri with chopped steak, but the original recipe doesn’t.

It’s the latest luxurious version to be said.

Also, you know Koreans can’t leave out Kimchi when we eat Korean food.

It’s very hard to tell, but what you see in the purple circle is kimchi. 

(Mindy unnie recommend this brand if you wish to try kimchi! It’s called “Jonggajip kimchi”. The number 1 brand in Korea.👍)


Jiminie in hanbok, eating jjapaguri is cute.

He must be hungry after the nervous driving and all the lively running around the camp.

Here, V is drinking Chilsung Cider. Why is this so special? and what is Chilsung Cider??

It’s also what Yoongi and Namjoonie chose to drink.

Cidar packed full of the fridge…to,

롯데칠성 | [칠성사이다 X BTS] 청귤 댄스편

It is what they are advertising too. Lol

Love dance monster! Go! 🤩

Let’s end this jjapaguri with

Satisfied Hobi💜

(Jungkook after boxingㅋㅋㅋ look at that wet hair everyone… cute💜 )

The time has come. 😱 🔪 🐟

In episode 2, Jin, for the first time in his life, makes Hoe (sashimi) from live fish.

(Hobi can’t believe Jin has successfully done it)

This is hoe!

You probably know what 회 hoe (sashimi) is, right? It is basically eating raw fish. The fish on top of sushi is hoe/sashimi.

Hoe/sashimi can be made with many different types of fish, what members ate this time was a flounder. A typical type of fish Koreans enjoy.

(No, he is not THE flounder from the Little Mermaid!! I know what you are thinking right now😂😂😂)

The one in the picture is the flounder Koreans eat. 

부대찌개 Budae Jjigae

The second menu prepared is 부대찌개 Budae Jjigae.

Budae Jjigae is one of the easy level Korean menus for foreigners to try! I am sure you will fall in love with the Budae Jjigae once you taste it!

Budae jjigae is a kind of stew made with ham, sausage, spam, baked beans, kimchi, gochujang, and other seasonings. 

Did you notice the ingredients are not very ‘Traditional Korean’? 

The name ‘Budae Jjigae’ means ‘Army base stew’ in Korean. It was created shortly after the Korean war.  People had not much to eat, they made food with whatever they can find. And they saw lots of leftovers, food trashed from the U.S Army base. Now you see how Budae Jjigae was born.

Despite the sad behind story, Koreans (especially young generations) enjoy this menu. 

Anthony Bourdain cooks Korean food for Anderson Cooper

Watch this YT clip [Anthony Bourdain cooks Korean food for Anderson Cooper] making and tasting ‘budae jjigae’.

So, for dinner, members had ‘hoe’ (by Jin) and ‘Budae jjigae’ (by Suga). 

But this menu seems odd for Koreans. 

Not a right match for a dinner table.

However, it makes total sense when you see the next.
