Asian Heritage Month: A Music Video That Makes Us Hungry

Did you know that May is Asian Heritage Month here in Canada?

I did, but it took forever for me to write a post about this month despite the fact that I am Canadian and Asian. But here is a music video worth sharing by a Korean rock band called Jan Kiha and the Faces for their song, That Sucks. Though I am ethnically Korean, I have never heard of the band — I do not follow any Korean musicians except for Psy, but this is not exactly extraordinary since everyone knows of Psy! Also, I cannot decipher what exactly the band is singing about, but nevermind the lyrics (though the tune is catchy). Look at the food porn!

The video records the preparation of a traditional home cooked meal in Korea, starting with steaming rice, then boiling a stew (“jigae”), as well as the creation of various “ban chan” or side dishes (including kimchi) that are eaten with a bowl of rice. Watching the video made me hungry for Korean food as, alas, Montréal is no hot spot for good Korean cuisine. I will have to subject myself to Korean food porn until my next visit to Toronto.
