But one specific hobby is not only interactive but also a sensation to the senses and it includes food. Although most K-pop idols cook, there are specific artists who are on the chef-tier level in terms of cooking.

Among the K-pop boy group members, here are male idol chefs who have must-try recipes:

GOT7 BamBam


Chef BamBam of GOT7 has an unending array of talents under his sleeve, and among them is being a good cook. Undeniably, all the K-pop idol's recipes are amazing, but BamBam's recipe for Som Tam & Fire Jjamppong Ramyun is simply 'chef's kiss'.

iKON Song


Song's vocals are as smooth as his cooking. The iKON member showcases his skill in the kitchen on his YouTube channel "송슐랭 가이드 - SONGCHELIN GUIDE" and among his most popular dishes is his recipe for basil pesto pizza.



NCT's very own Kun not only brings the flare on stage but also in the kitchen. This male idol chef is very keen in the kitchen with a myriad of tips and tricks. Kun's recipe for Chinese-style braised fish is not only mouth-watering but also a must-try for all seafood enthusiasts.

NCT Taeil


Taeil is the second member of SM Entertainment's NCT on this list. This male K-pop idol has a plethora of Korean cuisines under his belt. Taeil's talent in K-pop can easily be translated on a plate as his pork belly pasta is to die for.
