AboutI am a Korean-American painter living in New York city. I started this blog as a food blog, intending to share recipes (often requested by friends, as I am known to be a pretty good cook among my friends) and occasional restaurant reviews. As many of my Korean friends point out, all Koreans are obsessed about food (including me). I love shopping, making, looking at and reading about food, too. Food is my porn. Even my art is about food. Over the years, however, the blog evolved into sharing more of the things that interest me at the moment; classical music (especially opera), theater, books, French language, political and cultural ideas, and of course, food. I am also writing about the exhibitions that I am involved in as well as other exhibition reviews. In the end, I hope that I am showing my engagement as an artist with the society and the culture in general. Hopefully, some of it interests you, too.

I went to see Alexander McQueen’s very popular posthumous exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art called Savage Beauty. The wait to get in the exhibition is always at least 30 minutes, and once you are in the exhibition hall … Continue reading
This spring theater season, I did not have too much time to devote to sample a lot of shows, but I did have a chance to see the revival of Tom Stoppard‘s 1993 masterpiece Arcadia starring Billy Crudup, Margaret Colin, … Continue reading
