Hello! Welcome to my blog. I am overjoyed that you have stopped by and taken an interest in my little space in the gargantuan blogosphere.
I started this blog in 2013 as a creative outlet to journal everything food and food-related. If you didn’t already know, “behgopa” means “hungry” in Korean. And “behgopa” is what I am pretty much all the time! Eating makes my belly happy. Writing keeps my mind sane. And photographing food will forever make me frustrated, as photography is not my forte and will probably never be.
There’s always a story behind every dish and every meal. So far, my favorite food story that I’ve shared has been about 6-25 (ramblings about the Korean War and my family story)!
My time in the soul-crushing professional kitchen has also been fueling my blog along. It has been what my readers seem to get a kick out of the most. In my BOH Stories, I share the tales of what goes on behind closed doors of restaurant kitchens, almost like a secret society that is closed off to the public. Maybe I’ve shared too much at times. Oh well.
Learn Korean with me! Earlier in 2017, I’ve been trying something new on my blog. I’ve been sharing tutorials on learning Korean through food. What better way to learn something than through food? Well, that sure is my favorite way to learn. Come join me as we go over the Korean alphabet, using food tutorials, delving into Korean food etiquette and culture, and more!
Around here, you might hear the term, “behgo-rage” tossed around intermittently. Behgo-rage doesn’t happen that regularly, but when it does, OMFG!!
Learn more about the stages of my behgo-rage here.
In 2014, I started writing a food-centric romance novel. I’ve gotten all the way up to revision #2. I’ll get it published some day. But it’s like, the more I write, the more I hate what I had previously written. And the revision process progresses to having no end in sight. *Sigh*. It has been an unparalleled journey that has been met with self-doubt, self-loathing, and has been the breeding ground for my inferiority complex as a writer. And I love it.
