  • [UNSCENE MAGAZINE] Haddon House: Seoul's Friendly Neighborhood Foreign Grocer

    2012/06/02, Source
    While living in Korea, one finds it difficult to locate certain foods and sundries, seemingly on a daily basis. There are a few good foreign markets in the Itaewon area, but one which is greatly overlooked is Haddon House, located east of Itaewon station, just around the corner from Oksu. Upon walking in, it feels more like a typical western grocery store, albeit a small one. There's a good selection of fresh produce – from avocados to asparagus, and fresh herbs from mint to dill. At the end of the first aisle is a freezer with some frozen meats, such as full-sized turkeys. Just beyond is a wide assortment of jarred and canned goods, including some of those harder to find canned fruits and veggies, such as artichoke hearts. If you're a snob about quality, there are some excellent choices to be found,...More

  • The Kimchi Chronicles

    2011/06/03, Source
    Join Marja Vongerichten as she rediscovers her Korean roots and introduces her superchef husband to the tastes and flavors of Korea. (New York, New York, April 2011) Korean food isn't shy. It's about loud, punchy flavors, about ingredients that take time to pickle and ferment, about soups that come together quickly with a rolling boil and barbeque cooked over an open fire built right into the dinner table. It's about banchan, the huge variety of side dishes that accompany every Korean meal, and also about communal eating. It's about sharing food and time with family, about a culture that's simultaneously rooted in tradition and devoted to innovation. Korean food is healthy, satisfying and it's entirely fun,...More
  • Han Hye-jin's Song Picks

    2010/01/18, Source
    She created a friendly image for herself, playing an energetic, curly-haired young woman in a daily family drama. She then took on the female lead role in a traditional drama, which scored a 50 percent viewership rating. She also experienced failure after appearing in a trendy drama about a professional working woman, which saw low ratings. This is who actress Han Hye-jin is. During a career which could hardly be described as a long one, there are also probably not that many actors who have played such various roles and received such a variety of responses from viewers as Han has. But what makes her so interesting is not just that she has appeared in not-so-easy-to-define dramas in the past. What is important is that she, who has appeared and worked and gone through many experiences, is still working, in the present tense. After SBS drama "Terroir" ended, she took on the role of an intelligent female detective in the film "No Mercy", which recently opened in theaters, and is currently traveling throughout the country to shoot SBS TV series "Jejoongwon". What is even more important is that she who wants to keep working and working.,...More

    No one could have imagined that this young and willowy actor had it inside him. To begin with, Jo In-sung, 25, has such a "pretty" face that a gangster was the last role one could match him up with.
