How did you feel about joining JFWF 2019?

Along with many famous chefs, it was a great honor to be able to properly promote Jeju traditional food using the ingredients.

What is the most important factor in cooking?

I think the ‘taste’ that the public generally talks about comes from healthy and fresh ingredients, too. Wouldn’t it be the best dish to make with good ingredients?

Any advice for those who dream of a chef?

Try to have a wide view from far away. Chefs are not just good at cooking.
