Best Korean Dramas About Food
You may have noticed that every Korean drama or K-movie features Korean food. Perhaps one of the reasons why Korean dramas incorporate food into the storyline is to promote Korean culture. So if you're on a strict diet, we suggest that you do not, in any circumstance, watch K-drama. While food is constantly present in Korean dramas, there are also shows where the narratives are centered on food.
Here are the top 3 Korean dramas about food.
1. Wok of Love
"기름진 멜로 (Wok of Love)" is about a man's story about life, love, and of course, food.
