Kimchi Bokkeum Bap (김치 볶음밥)

Hello hellooo!
Welcome to Korean Cooking 101 with your host, me! @Sailynn! :D
This is the segment where I hunt down recipes and try them out, then go through step by step on teaching you the wonders that I picked up!
This way, when you get to Korea, you'll be able to eat comfortably as if you were eating at home!
I hope you're ready to waken those taste buds with the amazing flavors that Korea has to offer!

(Disclaimer~ I can't promise it'll look as delicious as that photo...... but it will taste delicious! :D)

Let's get some background info before we start~
There's 2 main ingredients we gotta talk about before we get cooking, and that is Kimchi, (김치) and Rice (밥)
Kimchi (김치) - Something that we either know what it is and have tasted it, or we don't know what it is exactly but have heard it being mentioned in countless dramas and by multiple idols.
김치 is pickled cabbage, often spicy depending on where you got it from or how you made it. It's created with a mix of garlic, salt, vinegar, chile peppers, and other spices that add onto its goodness.
Moral of the story here, 김치 is used as a side dish in every meal and is known to be the national dish of Korea and to be very healthy!
Yes, it has a unique taste and smell, but blending it with other foods really helps balance it all out so one can quickly get use to it!
(Trust me, the first time I smelled it, I was like 'WHAT ARE THOSE!?' ..... It was within the past year XD)
Rice (밥) - We all know about rice. Whether it's white rice or brown rice, or even fried rice, it is definitely something that everyone has tried at least once. We also know how heavily used rice is in Asian countries too because it's a stable food for over 50% of the world's population while wheat and maize haven't even reached those numbers since its discovery.
Basically, if you're more into pasta and bread, I highly recommend you start eating more 밥 because it's also used in almost every single dish in Korea with the different ways it can be transformed!
(Can I get an amen for whoever invented rice cakes!? <3)
If requested, I can make cards to further explain the Korean historical background on either of these ingredients. :)
Ok~ Enough with the history lesson, let's get started! :D
Note: What you use and what I use may be different, but don't worry, substitutes are always a great way to expand your creativity in the kitchen!
I'll always try to stick to the original ingredients but if I don't have something, I'll substitute it, but it's okay, I'll let you know when I do!

Ingredients~

(Serves about 4 but I only made enough for myself and my sister)
4 cups of cooked rice (It doesn't matter if it's short rice or whatever, just make sure to cook it first!:))
7 oz of kimchi (I used the brand above but use whichever you have!)
5 oz ground pork (ATTN: I did not have unfrozen ground pork so I substitute for Spam..... :3)
1/4 of a carrot
1/2 an onion
4 eggs (The egg goes on top at the very end so if you're only making for yourself, then you can just use 1 egg. :))
4 tablespoons vegetable oil (I substitute it for sesame oil because I didn't have vegetable oil, but use whichever you have! Don't go out and buy a specific kind!)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Salt and ground pepper for taste

Preparation~

Prep 1.~ Make sure you cook your rice before anything! Honestly, I love making white rice in large portions because then it'll already be ready to go next time I'm in the kitchen! :D
Prep 2.~ Chop up the kimchi into smaller pieces ONLY if your kimchi is in whole pieces.
Prep 3.~ Chop up the carrot and onion into bite sized pieces. Does it have to be perfect? Of course not! I won't go Gordon Ramsay on you if it's not extra fine! XD I just don't want ya'll to choke! D:

Directions~

Step 1 ~ Heat a large skillet over medium to high heat. Add the oil and chopped onions then stir-fry them until they start turning translucent. Then add the pork (In my case, it was Spam), carrot and kimchi.
Step 2 ~ When the pork is fully cooked, (Or when my spam was toasted evenly), add the rice and continue stir-frying. Lastly, season the dish with soy sauce, salt and black pepper.
Step 3 ~ In Another frying pay, fry the eggs sunnyside up format. Then when you serve yourself in a bowl, place a fried egg on top to finish it off.
This is mine^
The differences- My egg didn't want to cooperate, (~e.e)~ I had no pork so I used spam, ~(e.e~) And I didn't fry the rice, I just used white rice because I completely misread that part about adding it to the pan.... XD :/
So hopefully yours looks better than mine!

If you make it, post it on Instagram and tag us @kpop_int

This way I can see how you did it and maybe steal (borrow) some of your add-ons! :3
Well ladies and gents, I hope you enjoyed this walkthrough! :D
Tell me what you thought! Have you created Kimchi Bokkeum Bap before?

6 Korean Olympians To Watch!
You know I can't WAIT for the Olympics so let's look at a few awesome Olympians representing South Korea :D PS: 올림픽 - oh-lim-pik! Ki Bo Bae - Archery A South Korean archer who was ranked the world’s number one archer in August 2015. She is the current World Championship and the defending Olympic champion in archery. An Chang Rim - Judo South Korea’s premier lightweight Judo champion and the nation’s representative in the 2016 summer olympics. He is currently ranked first in the world and seeded first in the Olympics. Kim Ji Yeon - Fencing A South Korean sabre fencer and the 2012 Olympic champion. Having started foil fencing at the age of 13, she is the first South Korean woman to win a gold medal in fencing in the Olympic games. Shin A Lam - Fencing A fencer whose 2012 duel sparked a huge controversy in the Olympic games after a timekeeping error gave her opponent a timing advantage. When South Korea immediately appealed the decision, Shin waited for over an hour on the duelling ground, in accordance to the fencing bylaws, while judges deliberated and eventually gave the win to Shin’s opponent. Son Yeon Jae - Rhythmic Gymnastics An individual rhythmic gymnast, dubbed the “National Fairy” of South Korea. She has won titles in the 2014 Asian Games, 2010 Asian Games, and 2014 World Championships. Calling it now: she's going to be the next Kim Yuna and have her face on EVERY advertisement lol! Park Tae Hwan - Swimming An Olympic swimmer who is the first South Korean to win an Olympic medal in swimming. He has competed and won medals in the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, and is to compete once more in the upcoming 2016 games. Who else is PUUUUUMPED for the Olympics?!

I Fall
Requested by @BTSMicDrop Kai x Reader It was our third date. He was shy and sexy and...heavens above, why wouldn't he hold my hand. Kai was polite, he opened doors, he pulled chairs out. The man brings flowers and he won't even hold my hand. Was there some issue with me? Was I being friendzoned and he just didn't want to tell me? WHAT WAS WRONG WITH ME? "You're cute when you space out." His voice is velvet and brings me back. "I'm sorry." I right myself, clearing my throat ",Dinner was lovely, thank you." I've made this awkward. "Should we get you home? I remember you said you had work in the morning and I don't want to keep you to late." Before I can answer, a crack of thunder rattles the building. "We should definitely get home." Within minutes we're walking to the car but never make it in time as the skys open and the rain falls. We're drenched by the time we both curl into the seats of his car and the heater is blasting. "Sorry about that. Should've just called a car instead. The rain didnt ruin your dress did it?" So polite. "No, it didn't." The car is driving and the rain is heavy, so heavy. The lines on the roadway seem to disappear. The car slides just slightly before Kai corrects it. "I need to pull over. We can wait this out until it's lightened up." We're stuck on the side of the road in a tsunami. What a way to end a date or was it just hanging out? Was he so worried to get me home so he could end this little charade of dating? Then... I remember the moment. It was slow motion and yet so fast. He moved, leaning in, his hands reaching for me. My hand reaching for him. I watched the water drip from his hair, a reminder of the sudden downpour that struck us as we went to the car. I watched the windows inch with fog with the atmosphere change. I watched as my fingers splayed out across his chest as he leaned closer. His heart beat fast, he paused for half a second. I should say no. I should stop this before it starts. I should stop before.... I. Fall. The world crashes, the rain booms on the car and my hand fists in his shirt. His hands meets my cheeks and pull me in. Our eyes close and suddenly we are a mixer of lips and tongues and teeth. . . . . @kpopandkimchi @StarishaRichard @KaeliShearer @jenjenkhreim @naydelinrm @MichelleIbarra @jader @StephaniePoore @H8rt4u @Dabaesaplayer @jojojordy2324 @CreeTheOtaku @Ercurrent @Kpossible4250 @Alyessiazavala @BrendaValdez @Zyxzj @VKookie47 @VivianYang @Caky @sarahdarwish @KeziahWright @staceyholley @reyestiny93 @unnieARMkeY @KellyOConnor @TracyLynnn @JessicaFigueroa @BrookeStam @Starbell808 @SusiBosshammer @jjg97 @MayraCastro @QueenyCrossGene @VeronicaArtino @GreciaFlores @Maddie27 @CheyenneJessee @shellyfuentes70 @CheyanneLindsey @JasminMartinez @FannyWard @mitchix5 @ItatiSanchez @Defy24601 @OliviaZenger @lilbr0wneyes @ChelseaJay @ShinoYuki @AraceliJimenez @KarlythePanda66 @JaeneashaJones @rcuero @mjenifferjm9 @Ilikepancakes @BtsIsLife @aleciaLOVES @Kyokeo @MorleeCorielus @ESwee @krin @azura4495
Korean Winter Street Foods
Korea is proud of its food, but it REALLY proud of its street food. There are different foods depending on the season, and I have to say that winter is the best. Here's a list of foods you MUST TRY if you get the chance: 군고구마 (kun go-gu-ma) 군 means "roasted" and 고구마 is Korean sweet potato. The potato is roasted in a huge barrel oven, then handed to you with the skin still on. It's your job to peel it and eat the sweet goodness inside. You can buy an entire bag if you want! 호떡 (ho-ddeok) 호떡 is sort of a pancake/donut combination. It is fried dough filled with cinnamon, sugar, and occasionally nuts. It is flattened into a pancake shape and handed to you in a tiny paper cup. Be careful with the first bite because the inside are often boiling hot! (There are also vegetable versions but the dessert version is much better in my opinion!) 군밤 (kun bam) We just learned that 군 means roasted and now we learn another word: 밤 means chestnut! Just like in New York where there are roasted nut stands everywhere around Christmas time, the cold weather brings out the roasted chestnut vendors. 계란빵 (kye-ran bbang) 계란 means egg while 빵 means bread so voila! Egg bread! The bread part is similar to corn bread, but a little less corn-y and the egg is steamed on top to make a really, really delicious combo. It's my favorite street food after 군고구마 :D 호두과자 (ho-du kwa-ja) The small of this is unnnnbelievable! 호두 means walnut and 과자 means cookie or snack. Therefore 호두과자 is a walnut cookie! They are shaped like walnuts and filled with sweet red bean. You can buy these by the bag full too! 회오리감자 (hwae-o-ri kam-ja) LOOK AT THESE THINGS! They are called 회오리감자 because 회오리 means tornado and 감자 means potato. Behold the potato tornado! I have NO idea how you eat these :) Have you guys tried any of these? Which are your favorite? @NysA @xanderskissme @AmbieB @Jiyongixoxo @BabySheep @phantomsluvr @Rhia @VixenViVi @JohnEvans @RobertMarsh @ElizabethT @ArmyofKookie @shantalcamara @KittyKpop @jannatd93 @cthulu @HarperKennett @musicundefined9 @DekaraMiller @Mahealani @kpoplove89 @tannyo @IMNII @kpopisnylife @KoreanLove2 @lawtont @baileykayleen @oceanseokjin @Sammie99522 @RoyallyPrincess @heidichiesa @asterkimchee @CurrySoop @malibella @puppycatX0X0 @notgucci3 @Lizzeh @reallychelsea @JorgeRAMME @adikiller @blazinpurplehl @kvnguyen @lupemontserrat @ParkMinRin13 @peytoncarter2 @aguileragissel @FallingByeol @adritha13 @toughcookie @TesneemElAlami @VWolf12XOXO @ToyaH @aleciaLOVES @no5alive @AnnahiZaragoza @TravelSizedGirl @kthyl @Adetoro @linzi0302 @hahabts @primodiva93 @cindystran @Saeda1320 @misssukyi @preeta @Yearnin2learn @DorisMay27 @iforisabelle @TLeahEdwards @robertakm64 @azaraa @JeanNwagbuo @aliahwhbmida @WiviDemol @ariana2k @sosoaloraine23 @hisundays @3mmY4 @sukkyongwanser @asterkimchee @misssukyi @MandySpaulding @LatoyaHudson @Claymorex @SaraHelguero @thatkdramalover @sierradimes @TokkiGwiyomi @AnelVega @KaiTakashima @UKissMeKevin @jemitza @VWolf12XOXO @HuonTreeRoo @lovebluecolor @kel53 @JezziCrypt @LysetteMartinez @Fleurdemai00 @oxSoZeroxo @k0reanbbyq @ceramoore3 @YessicaCardenas @Kuramariin @jannatd93 @herreravanessa9 @WiviDemol @VixenViVi @Roxy1903 @NiaLuv19 @kmayong @Baekyeol27 @9thMuse @Ilikepancakes @CandaceJordan @RobertMarsh @KiKi29 @Rhia @AnnahiZaragoza @YGWinner @EllieDean @LizaNightshade @panouvang123 @sherrysahar @mistymaity @GuerlyReyes @maralatto @shantalcamara @paszikelly @SerenaMcG @unbreakable1109 @Diablo6 @YessicaCardenas @Tigerlily84 @JorgeRAMME @Bose @AegyoBunny @VivianCrespoMed @Airess95 @SHINee808 @DaisySalazar @Pickles440 @BryAnnaAhrens @CloverShadows @JordanShuler @ChrystalA @Diajuni @minsangu @TatyTheTot @GraceWatson @NickySerban @Sinique @AnaMata7397 @nightcoreanimen @KarlythePanda66 @KellyOConnor @trashlord @hyolouxx @Sarahwifi @JayDay @nettaj1013 @Miyukichan @XergaB20 @pharmgirlerin @JasmineWilliams @toughcookie @warjeensuleiman @DasiaB @talimarks @ckienitz @KeyBoss @ChristiMarie @YokoUdoran @hayesfordaze @KagamiTaiga @malibella @ocherrylimeadeo @DjKpop12 @reyestiny93 @ZeeRow
