Learn How to Make Traditional Korean Dishes From A Korean Rapper

Instagram videos seem to be getting more and more creative. You can find everything from quick comedic clips to a short vacation documentary. But what about a video series?

Oogeewoogee recently featured Korean American rapper, Lyricks, who began a mini cooking series which showcase step-by-step instructions on recreating traditional Korean dishes on his Instagram. During the snowy season at his home in Northern Virginia, he shows followers how to make kimchi, a spicy fermented cabbage that is a staple side dish with meals. He also shows his process of cooking braised mackerel for his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. As a cute and hilarious bonus, Lyricks also includes a few tips he learned from his “halmeoni” (grandma).

As Lyricks would say… Boom Bap!

I found his commentary quite entertaining and I look forward to seeing what else he whipped up for his followers, but was left curious at what some of the Korean words meant. Anyone want to help out and translate?
