      She makes cooking is an enjoyable daily activity even doing by a small dish for yourself. That is really enhancing life whoever you are or whatever you do.
      Such a funny and loveable lady she is. Just watching her cooking is already good enough to make you feel better especially when you are down and sad.

    Maangchi's Korean recipes are truly authentic and equally delicious! She's an inspiration for anyone wanting to learn the essential flavors of Korean cooking. I'm a self-taught "Asian Foodie" & ADMIRE Maangchi's approach to teaching the world about Korean dishes from her beautiful, but incredibly comical perspective!

      Maangchi 의 한국어 요리법 은 정말 정통 과 동등하게 맛있다 ! 그녀는 한국 요리 의 본래의 맛 을 배우고 싶은 사람을위한 영감 이다 . 나는 독학으로 " 아시아 미식가 "& 그녀의 아름다운 에서 한국 요리 에 대한 세계를 가르치는 존경 Maangchi 의 접근 방식 , 하지만 매우 우스꽝스러운 관점 해요!

    In my personal opinion, she is like a happiness ambassador, you know why?, eating is one of the most enjoyable experience, and she share her recipies with love, you can feel it, she is full of a very warm hearted attitude, every time I watch her videos I can feel like if I were with someone that is part of my family, I really wish her a lot of blessings, no doubt there are still beautiful humans beens on earth. Thank you sooo much for your efforts for helping us to learn how to feed our families in a delicious and healthy way. Two thumbs up!!!!!

      Don't get me wrong, I think she's great, but I don't know if humble is the right word. Watch any non-cooking video of hers (including this one). All she does is talk about how much everyone loves her and how amazing her food is.

    Maangchi, I want to thank you for your wonderful videos. I lived in Seoul when I was in the Navy. My Korean friends introduced me to many wonderful dishes. I have never forgot my beloved food when I got back to the states. I would go to Korean restaurants. At times, it got a bit expensive. Then I came across your videos. I don't even go to restaurants anymore!
    I have learned sooo much from you. Thank you! You are a sweetheart!

  • Zinta Foxana & The Painted Shadows

    I remembered, I was searching on here for a Fried Chicken Recipe
    about a year or so back,,and saw a video from Maangchi, titled:
    "Crunchy Korean fried chicken recipe (Dakgangjeong: 닭강정)"
    I saw the video and was stunned by how she made it.
    Even her personality and vocal dialect made the video more enjoyable.
    Then about a a few months ago in 2016, I came across her channel,
    and began to watch many of her videos, then realized once I was met
    with the same Fried Chicken video, I immediately went:
    "Oh wow, this is her? I remember now" xD hehehe
    I knew somehow she looked familiar. Now I'm hooked on her Korean recipes.

    이렇게 열성적으로, 그리고 처음엔 아무런 보상에 대한 바람 없이 순수한 마음으로 수많은 한국의 정통 음식을 전세계에 알린 한국분이 이 분 말고 또 있었을까 싶다. 그녀의 공으로 지금은 인정 받고 가치 있는 보상을 받아 기쁘다. 이런 분이 한국에서 공로상을 받아야 하고, 한국홍보사로 지정되어야 한다. 그리고 영어 정말 잘 한다. 저 나잇대의 한국 아주머니가 겨우 4년 미국 인생으로 저 정도의 언어 구사력과 알아듣기 쉽게 자기 의견을 표출하는 건 영어 정말 잘 하는 거다. 발음이나 억양이 완전히 한국식이어도 상관 없다. 영어식으로 발음하고 잘 해도 자기 의견 표현 못 하는 사람보다 훨 났다. 그리고 레서피 너무 좋고 센스도 좋고 시각에도 신경을 쓰는 모습이 보기 좋고, 심지어 오뎅이나 막걸리도 집에서 손수 만들어서 세계에 널리 알리는 노력도 감사하다. 언젠가 쿡 북 사고 유튜브 보면서 망치 레서피로 막걸리 만들어 볼거다

      망치님이 과거에 대해서 말한것으로 지금 이득을 가져가는것이 있나요? 이득을 가져갈려고 거짓말을 했었으면 유명한 요리학과나 호텔 주방장 출신 이라고 해야 이득이 되겠죠..
      요즘 이슈가 되는 정치권의 누구처럼 사기 경력에 불법 취업이나 불법을 저질렀나요?
      저는 외국에서 요식업에 종사하고 있습니다
      저분은 누가 봐도 애국자 입니다 정부가 안하고 있는 일을 하고있고요 한국을 모르는 사람에게 BTS, 손흥민과 같이 선한 영양역을 주는 분입니다
      굳이 남을 욕하려는건 아니지만.. 돈과 명예욕만 있는 한국 티비 스타 요리사와는 망치님은 다르죠.. 한국 티비쇼 요리사들 문어발 요식업 사업하고, 본인이 배운적도 없는 이 세상 모든 요리 다 아는것처럼 평가하면서 해외 돌아다니고.. 본인 명성 이어가며 문어발 장사 이어가는것! 이것이 진실성이 없고 시청자 기만하고 잘못된거아닐까요? 요즘 너무 당연한 것처럼 되어있는 것이지만 사람들에게 세뇌처럼 되다 시피한 이런 현실이 안탑갑습니다
      앞에 말한 한국 티비 스타 요리사 분들과 비교해도 망치님은 정말 훌륭한 분이고 한국을 알리신것에 대해 더큰 보상을 받으셔야 한다고 생각합니다
      저나 주변에 한인들이 못하고 있는 한국에 대해서 좋은 영향역을 외국에서 보이는 망치님 응원하는게 당연하다고 보고요 망치님 같은 분들이 외국 생활하는 한인들에게 더욱 더 자부심을 심어준다고 생각해요
      다시 말하자면 BTS, 손흥민은 젊은층 그리고 남성에게 한국의 좋은면을 알리지만, 중년 여성에게 한국의 문화를 알린다는건 정말 어렵고 방법도 한정되어 있는데 이걸 하고 계시는 망치님 그래서 정말 애국자이십니다
      한국요리는 한국을 알리면서 다른 인종간에 화합이 될수 있다고 봅니다
      지금 망치님이 하고계신 요리 영상을 보고 중년, 주부 분들이 가족에게 한국 요리를 해주면 한인들과 공감대가 형성되고 더 나아가 어린 한인 자녀들에게 외국인들과 문화적 거리 감등을 없애며 외국 생활에 적응 할 수 있는 기회를 마련해주기까지 합니다
      그리고 외국 살면서 느낀건 영어 잘하는건 아무런, 대단한 꺼리도 안됩니다 우리가 지금 한국말 하고 있는것과 다른게 없다는거죠
      외국에서 한 분야에서 성공면서 한국에대한 선한 영향역을 주는 분은 정말 극소수이며
      그래서 한인 모두가 망치님 같은 분들이 더 활발하게 활동하시고, 새로 나오실수 있도록 칭찬하고 응원해주시길 바래요.

      I think you are making stories out of your mind. I was an english teacher and I have been in abroad for more than 20 years but her speaking English is better than mine. Do not judge others by your ruler.
      When she said she was a teacher, she did not say she was working for university students.
      You can teach a person next door if your skill is better than other.
      What is wrong with you.
      Some people like you make walls by themselves when there is an open space. Hope you can open your mind and eyes.
      Whatever the stories of her saying, you cannot judge her because this interview was in a limited time and place.
      I am so proud of her being on the stage all by herself. Love her braveness. Her sense of humer is what I like to learn from her. That skill breaks between other nationalities.

      Derick Nam 망치를 무조건 사랑하고 맨처음 망치 비디오 시작했을때 부터 자랑스럽게 여러 사람들에게 알리고 있는 같은 연배의 미국에서 살고있는 사람입니다.
      저도 이렇게 망치가 잘 되어서 너무 행복 하고 응원하는데 지금 이 비디오 보고 오히려 많은 의문점이 생겼습니다.
      망치님 비디오 를 초기부터 거의 다 보고 있는데 이 비디오를 보니 자신의 과거를 많이 과장 하는 것으로 보입니다.
      이제 까지 못하는 영어에도 꿀리지 않고 우리 음식을 세계적으로 알리고 밝은 성격 맛있고 쉽고 자연스러운 태도 이런 모든 것이 너무 자랑 스러워 발음 이나 틀린 영어들 모두 망치의 매력 으로 받아들였어요.
      망치가 지금 이영상에서 자기가 한국에서 대학원을 나오고 영어 선생님 이었다고 했어요.
      저분 망치가 구사하는 영어로 한국에서 영어 선생님 했다는데에 맨붕 이 왔어요.
      한국에서 영어 선생님 했던 사람이 2000 년도에 캐나다 이민을 와서 북미 에서 이 영상이 제작된 2015 년이면 15 년을 살고도 저렇게 엉터리 영어를 구사하는 사람이 한국에서 영어 선생님 했다는 것이 믿기지 않아서 구글 로 찾아보니 인터뷰 할때마다 과거가 변화 되고 있었어요.
      한국에서 사범대 나와서 영어 선생님 한 사람은 저렇게 영어를 못할 리가 없습니다.
      한국사람들이 대학 나와도 영어 구사 잘 못해요. 그리고 실수 할까봐 조심하는 사람들은 더더욱 말하기 힘들더라고요.
      하지만 한국에서 대학 정도 나오면기초는 단단해서 외국 생활 몇년만 살고 집안에만 있지않고 본토 사람들과 사회생활을 하게 되면 말은 자연스레 늘어나고 발음도 좋아지고 언어가 순화됩니다.
      망치의 영어는 근본이 없이 들어서 배운 영어로 보입니다. 책으로 보고 배운 영어가 아닙니다. 한국에서 영어 선생님 하려면 정말 공부 잘해야 하고 (저는 수학 선생 했어요)
      그 실력으로 북미 캐나다 와 미국 에서 활발한 사회생활을 한 사람이 저런 브로큰 잉글리쉬 를 구사한다는 것은 말이 안돼요. 특히 자신이 완벽주의자라고 표현했는데 완벽 을 추구하는 사람들은 보통 실수 할까봐 많이 조심하고 그러면서 차츰차츰 자신감이 생기면서 잘하게 되지요.
      제 영어도 완벽한 것은 아니고 항상 실수 할까봐 특히 글 쓸 때 신경 쓰이고요.
      어떤 인터뷰 에서는 한국에서 토익 과 토플을 학원에서 가르쳤다고 했어요.
      한국에서 토익과 토플을 강의했다면 대상이 대학생 이상의 연령 층이고 그렇다면 많은 경력 이 있어야 해요.
      미국에서 살면서 자신의 과거를 세탁하는 사람들 많이 봤어요. 학력 재력 연분 경력 등등. 미국사람들은 다 믿고 그런가 보다 하지만 한국에서 비슷한 연령 이서는 경험들이 비슷한 사람은 알아요.
      저는 오늘 이 영상 본 것을 후회해요. 이제 까지 망치를 무조건 좋아했는데 이제 신빙성이 없어요.

    Maangchi is so natural! I really like listening to her talk, and her videos include some cute little quips, such as "Everything is cube, this is cube day..." They make us laugh in the middle of learning how to cook her delicious recipes. This is one TheXvid programme that I watch with intense focus. Maangchi deserves all the success that comes her way, through her hard work. She really talks to people's hearts (through their stomachs). Keep up the good work Maangchi!

    시골에서 태어나 한국에서 대학원까지 졸업하고 캐나다로 이민 그리고 학력같은거 아무것도 상관 안하는 슈퍼마켓 캐셔부터 다시 시작해서 미국으로 이민 그리고 음식에 대한 열정으로 유튜브 업데이트 까지.. 전 처음에는 그냥 중산층 아줌마가 심심해서 한 방송이라고 생각했습니다. 오랜 열정이 쌓이고 쌓여서 이런 결과를 만들어낸것이군요. 대단하다고 생각됩니다.

      She was born in the countryside in South Korea. Later in her life, she finished her post-graduate institute including a grad school in South Korea. Then she humbly accepted a job as a cashier in a grocery store regardless of her top-notch education background back in Korea. Then her on-going passionate love to making Korean cuisines led her to start creating TheXvid channel with full of Korean home made meals. (semin lee wrote that Maangchi has already obtained Green Card but she was waiting for having it according to the video footage.) semin lee assumed that Mangcchi was one of middle-class middle aged women who just started making videos to kill time. However, she's made a great success to receive this fame with putting lots of efforts and passions.

    I'm a real fan of you and Korean food. I'm so pleased you've had this success. I have always loved food and cooking; food as more than just sustenance! I love Korean food for many reasons: spice, deep flavour, healthy ingredients, kimchi;-)....but mostly because it is so comforting! I had a bowl of soondubu jjigae and was hooked!
    think I might order your book for my birthday!

    I love trying new foods but it can be daunting making new foods for the first time. Finding Maangchi on youtube gave me the encouragement and direction I needed to try making Korean food. Even if I can't try everything she posts, watching her videos make me happy. Thank you Maangchi for all the recipes and smiles!

    The compelling feature of Maangchi's videos is the moment she eats what she just made. With gusto and honestly tasting and proclaiming it "delicious" , she tells us she just made her lunch or dinner. I'm always so hungry after watching her. Ha Ha Maangchi just said "Misery" for Missouri and "Ken's Ass" for Kansas.
