[Seoul] - show on Vimeo about the food

I know CH frowns on external links but hopefully this one won't fall foul as (i) it is not me although my wife is the DP (ii) there is no financial gain etc. from it as the production company who filmed it are showing it on network TV in Korea and Vimeo is irrelevant and just so friends and family outside of Seoul can watch it (iii) it is interesting...

Anyway in case you are curious there is a show called SemiPermanent which just did a food episode which has just been put up on Vimeo. The focus is expats in Seoul but they visit a restaurant I think CHers would particularly like - Bean Table. Bean Table is probably the only restaurant I've been to in Seoul pushing organic Korean food. Most young chefs here focus on Western cuisine but Chef Lee is trying to doing more interesting things with traditional Korean.

  1. Such beautiful images!

    1. thanks so much for posting this. I bow to your wife's profuse talents. DP is such a male-dominated position, at least in the States. So much truth to what was said in this video. We ate at one of the garlic chicken places when we went to Daerim.

      Awesome stuff, great work. The Bean Table looks fantastic.

        Glad you guys enjoyed the show :).

        And Bean Table may be opening in the US (L.A. of course) and if it does it is worth trying.
