BTS food In the SOOP-episode.3

Bang morning~ today’s menu is “Kimchi Bokkeumbap” aka Kimchi Fried Rice! (김치볶음밥).

Baby mochi don’t want to wake up 😣

In the SOOP Korean food – Chef SUGA

When members are up, Suga and members start making brunch- more like lunch. 

Let’s run through Kimchi bokkeupbap recipe in 4 steps.

 

  1. drip enough oil, fry all the ingredients except the rice.
  2. when the frying is over, add rice and fry. just untill the rice is mixed well.

3. add sesame oil. (Koreans like to use sesame oil on many K-food.)

4. sprinkle cheese and wait for a little so the cheese on the top melts. -Done!

*BUT, they didn’t finish here and cooked just a little longer to get the bottom of the kimchi bokkeumbap to become crisp and crunch. 

That’s one of the ways Koreans enjoy bokkeumbap (fried rice). 😊

Btw…

Did you notice,

Members used the lid of a Sot used upside down as a big frying pan here?.

Koreans like to use Sottukkeong to cook Samgyupsal (a type of Korean bbq). It just tastes so much better!

Cooking on sottukkeong is rare now.

You can’t easily find to have a taste in a city unless you specifically search for a place.

I added some YT clips at the end of the post for you to watch more “Sottukkeong Cooked Samgypsal”.

Lunch time~

I like how they all gather around and eat together. =) It’s just sweet.

Korean of the day:

Hobi, 맛있어? (masisso?)

delicious?

❤️

Here is Korean famous Chef Baek Jongwon‘s easy to follow recipe of kimchi bokkeumbap if you wish to try it at home! 

Kimchi fried rice made with leftover ingredients at home!

In the SOOP food -episode.3

Jungkook tried to make something but failed.  Instead, makes french toast with the eggs he cracked.

What Unnie guess JK tried to make was fluffy souffle pancakes. (Idk, he said he failed to make meringue so… :/…)

Well, meringues is not supposed to be beaten by hands… even for JK 😂

In the SOOP Food – ep.3 Dinner

Members agreed on having ‘Buchu jeon(or Pa jeon) & Makgeolli’ for dinner because the weather is changing and starts raining in the evening.

WHY?????

The answer comes shortly after the explanation of buchu jeon, pa jeon, and makgeolli.😉

Buchu Jeon :

Buchu Jeon is a Korean dish.

The main ingredients are garlic chives (is called ‘buchu’ in Korean), onions, flour, and seasonings. Koreans like to add pieces of squid but it’s optional.

Pa Jeon is similar, just the main ingredient becomes ‘pa’ which is spring onion.

And you see the pattern, there are various jeon depending on its main ingredient.

* ‘-jeon’ in other name is ‘buchimgae’ or ‘chijimi’. They are all the same dish!

Makgeolli is Korean traditional rice wine. It’s lightly sparkling and slightly sweet and tangy.

Many girls like to cocktail makgeolli. Many different recipes are available but simply with soda is good too.

Also, you drink makgeolli in a makgeolli-jan. A bit low, little wide-ish cup made just for makgeolli.

(go back to the picture right above! The bowl like thing is the makgeolli-jan)

And ESPECIALLY we, Koreans crave this when raining outside.

There are different theories why, but the main two theories are these.

  1. Sentimentally, people made and ate buchujeon a lot when rains, so the good memories make you want buchujeon. On top of that, the sound of rain resembles cooking buchujeon. Listening to rain leads you to think of buchujeon.
  2. Medically, when rains, the human body’s blood sugar level drops, and naturally craves food to increase it. And flour (carbs) are just it to increase blood sugar level. Also, when it rains, you’re cold and some makgeolli, little alcohol warms you up.

There are other theories like,

Since lots of Koreans were farmers (back in the days) when rains they had no work. They spent time drinking makgeolli side with buchujeon.

Hmm, what do you think about the theories?

It’s just a Korean thing to say and do  “It’s raining, let’s eat buchujeon with makgeolli tonight”

Now , let’s see how members ate~

Let’s see members eating buchujeon & makgeolli.

Suga the chef makes buchujeon batter with Hobi.

They decided to cook and eat right outdoor.

Jeon is the best right out of the frying pan when it is the crispiest. (personal opinion😜)

Jungkook is a sweetie💗. 

He fed hyunga first, he knows they are the ones who did all the cooking.

U see makgeolli in bottles? (Unfortunately, the brand is unknown.) There are many small local brands makgeollies in Korea and this is one of them.  

My suggestion for a brand is this.

‘Ji-pyeong makgeolli’ (지평 생 막걸리)

This is the hottest, newest, trendy makgeolli in Korea now.  

What Jungkookie is using doesn’t look like a ‘makgeolli-jan’, but looks like they didn’t have the makgeolli-jan so the members are drinking makgeolli in that cup.

Lastly… In the SOOP food episode.3
