It is easy to see on your videos, that you cook from your heart. Thank you for sharing. Paul

Helen October 2, 2013 at 5:39 pm

Hi Seonkyoung!!
I came across your videos recently when I was searching for a bi bim bap recipe and I absolutely love your energy. I’m both more inspired and more excited about cooking Asian food now. Thank you so much! I was wondering if you have a recipe or video on those spicy rice cakes. It’s not in soup but rather stir fried.

Thank you.
Your newest fan.

I have been watching you with so much eagerness on Restaurant Express. After seeing you on the first episode of the show, I looked you up, and I am enthralled by your story. I am rooting so hard for you on the show and TRULY believe you deserve to win. In addition, you are so charming, and I love watching you on your YouTube channel. You need you own TV show. I would watch it all the time. That’s too bad you didn’t make it past the first cut on MasterChef, because I normally love that show, but I didn’t care for this last season because I didn’t have anyone to root for. I would have been rooting for you. It’s a shame they didn’t see your obviously talent, both with cooking and in your larger-than-life personality. I can tell that you are a person of great integrity. It shows. I admire you. I am 33 years old, and I honestly don’t think I have written a fan letter since I was 9 years old and I wrote a fan letter to Michael Keaton after he had starred in the original Batman movie. Ha! But I am truly your fan and wish you the best in all your endeavors.

PS: I spent 5 weeks in Seoul once and loved it. You come from an amazing city! And I am a fan of manhwa. You have gotten to do some incredible things in your life! You must be a true artist. And you must be so driven to have accomplished so much, especially under so much adversity. I realize I’m repeating myself now. Best of luck with everything.

your pal,

Seonkyoung December 13, 2013 at 4:28 pm

Hi NB, Thank you for watching Restaurant Express!!! I had so much fun filming and enjoying watching the show every sunday night also! ^_^ What you told me about me is totally totally lovely and sweet, thank you so much! Yes, I went MasterChef season 4 and only got the apron and couldn’t make the next round. But everything turned out great after all, and it was a great experience of TV world- which is helped me out a lot when I was working with Food Network. πŸ™‚ So I believe everything happen for a reason and I can’t be happier than now!! I haven’t back to Korean since I came to US but hopefully I can go back sometime soon, I really miss Seoul and all the foods out here!! I always have been artist since I was 4 years old, that’s my life! πŸ™‚ I really appreciate you time to wrote me a letter, and good luck to you with everything!!!!

NB December 16, 2013 at 3:03 am


I have the hugest smile on my face. I am so proud of you!!!!! You are an amazing person! Now I have to plan a trip to Las Vegas so I can eat at your restaurant πŸ™‚


Jeannie November 28, 2013 at 4:11 pm

Thank you for all your delicious recipes! Do you think you could do a video on how to make Jjampong?

Seonkyoung December 13, 2013 at 4:18 pm

I would love to! Actually I have a recipe, I need to share!!!

Eric (Seong Hoon) Kim December 2, 2013 at 3:19 am

I usually do not leave any comment. Even I do not have facebook or instagram.
I’ve watched the restaurant express. I am very proud of you. You are very creative, strong and warm hearted person. I was very surprised when i heard you came to usa 4.5 yrs ago. You must be very smart.
I came to Toronto, Canada 9yrs ago and i married in here. I totally understand how you feel when you mentioned your family story… One day they will accept the reality and no one ever control someone’s life.
I am your big fan and please trust your self. You are great chef! ν™”μ΄νŒ…! 선경씨!
Congratulations, Final 3 !!!

Seonkyoung December 13, 2013 at 4:17 pm

Hi Eric(μ„±ν›ˆμ”¨)! Thank you so much for leaving a kind comment to me! πŸ˜€ It’s always hard part that family is not accept you as who you are, but one day they will understand as you said. πŸ™‚ So we look forward and take our adventure and lovely journey in our life!!! Good luck and thank you!!!

Where can I find your recipe for Korean Bulgogi lettuce wrap using ground beef. Thanks in advance fir your help.

Seonkyoung September 1, 2014 at 9:58 pm

I don’t have bulgogi lettuce wrap with ground beef, but I do have regular bulgogi recipe that you can totally use ground beef.

1/4 cup Grated sweet onion
1/4 cup Grated Asian Pear
2 Tbs. Mirin (Seasoned rice wine)
1/3 cup Soy sauce (I recommend Korean soy sauce)
1 Tbs. Toasted sesame oil
1/4 cup Honey
Pinch of black pepper
1 tsp. toasted sesame seeds, crushed with fingers
7 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 lb. ground beef

Mix all the ingredients and cook until all the moisture evaporated and browned up.
Serve with lettuce, Ssamjang sauce(Korean spicy bbq dipping sauce) and rice! πŸ™‚

Andy and Family August 28, 2014 at 4:06 am

Hi Seonkyoung!
After watching you win on TV, we made a point of coming to visit you at Jayde Fusion last January. I have to say that your food tastes even better than it looks on TV! Thank you so much for visiting us at our table and spending time with us and our daughter. (You probably don’t remember us… Korean mom, white dad, mixed daughter (Madison) who asked you if you hated Adam for stealing your ingredients.) I heard you have moved to Northern CA. We’re from Northern CA (95621)! Do you have any plans of opening a restaurant near here? It’s so hard to find decent Korean food here (without traveling to SF or Oakland) and the local fusion places only specialize in tacos. We miss your food! If you ever need any local information, we’d be more than happy to help out.
Sincerely, Andy and Family

Seonkyoung September 1, 2014 at 9:53 pm

Hi Andy!
Of course I remember you and your family! I’m still so grateful that all of you came out to Vegas and stopped by my restaurant! It is always my precious time to meet my fans and followers!
Yes, we moved to Northern CA, and so happy to be here!!! We are actually planing on opening a small restaurant here and will need lots of local people’s help! What a perfect timing you sent me this message to me!!
Send me email seonkyounglongest@yahoo.com so I can ask you some questions please! πŸ˜€

Lindakristine September 1, 2014 at 10:52 pm

I am from Northern California. I would LOVE to try your new restaurant. In what city are you planning to open it?

Andy September 3, 2014 at 4:31 pm

Hi Seonkyoung,
I sent an email to your Yahoo account.
Look for email from address starting with “rttaj” and subject of “re: Contact Seonkyoung”.
Happy to be of any assistance!
Best wishes for your family and your new home!
Andy and Family

Jade September 14, 2014 at 2:13 pm

Hello Seonkyoung Longest,

I’m a fan from Singapore and I’ve been watching your videos for a long time.

Hope you will reply to my email since I left comments on every vlog video of yours but seems like there are so many comments you just can’t see mine πŸ™

First thing first I love your vlog videos!!!!!!

Last month I got an assignment from school which basically was I have to hand in a video introduce about Singapore and I have no idea how to film or make a video πŸ™

I know this might sound strange since I should as you questions about food instead but I really love your videos so I can’t think of any other one to ask but you. Can I ask how did you make your vlog videos? I mean with what camera and software and everything please? Because even it vblog video it looks like you film it in a studio and the sound is really good too!

Thank you and sorry for trouble you with this question!

Come visit Singapore one day, we have a lot of great foods!

I will keep supporting you in the future!

Seonkyoung September 19, 2014 at 11:36 pm

Did you get my reply email, Jade? πŸ˜‰

Amber Urycz September 18, 2014 at 4:50 pm

Hello Seonkyoung,
I really find your videos to be informative and I am able to learn to make new Korean dishes that I didn’t know how to make before. I was wondering if you have any suggestions on a special Korean dish I can make for my boyfriend on his birthday. He is originally from Seoul and a vegetarian. I would like to make him something other than vegetarian kimbap and kimchijigae this year.

Seonkyoung September 19, 2014 at 11:33 pm

Wow, You are such a lovely person!!! I know your boyfriend will be really happy to have you in his life.
There are many dishes that I can suggest for you to make for your boyfriend!
Jabchae is very great dish to make vegetarian, Tofu jorim is also delicious vegetarian Korean side dish. (If he eats egg.) Also you can make bulgogi without beef, but with fried tofu and mushrooms. It is super delicious, I just small cube the firm tofu and fry first in a skillet. Then cook in bulgogi sauce with small diced onion and mushrooms! It’s amazing substitute for beef! πŸ™‚ I also love to make Soon-tofu soup(Korean silken tofu soup) as vegetarian(I just made this morning!)- Pretty much same as regular one, but substitute protein to mushroom and anchovy broth to vegetable broth.
All the recipes you can find at my Youtube.com/SeonkyoungLongest cooking channel or this website! πŸ˜€

Sima October 31, 2014 at 4:36 am

Hi Seonkyoung! I am so happy for you and congratulations on moving to N CA!! Although I don’t comment much, I follow you. You seem so much happier after moving to Northern CA. I am always excited to watch your videos whenever I receive an email from Asian at home. Although I am Korean and cook some Korean dishes I am eager to learn your recipes and try on my kids and of course they love it. You probably don’t remember me but we met at Jayde Restaurant in Las Vegas (SPCook, do you remember? I still have a picture of you and I) You are so cute and full of energy and I love that about you. Whenever I watch your videos I can’t help but smile. Keep up the great work and I hope to have the opportunity to meet you again. I live in Southern CA so if you ever come back down to S CA, please let me know. I wish I lived close to you so I can learn from you and collaborate.

Best wishes and look forward to watching your videos πŸ™‚

Seonkyoung November 10, 2014 at 5:51 am

Hi Sima, Thank you for your sweet and lovely message!
It always makes me happy to hear from people like you who watch my videos and try my recipes! You are the reason why I do what I do.
YES, I and my husband are super duper happy to be in CA, which more fits to our life style! πŸ™‚
Please forgive me if I can’t picturing you wit your name right, I met TOO many people at the restaurant and it was overwhelming! (In a good way of course!) I’ll never forget all the moments I was meeting and talking in person with my followers. Please send me the picture of you and I, I have some pictures with people I met at Jayde, but I don’t think I have all…
I will definitely will let you know when we go S CA, would love to have a meet up!! πŸ˜€

Stephen November 19, 2014 at 11:21 am

Hi Seonkyoung,
My fiancΓ© is coming in from Korea to visit me in a few weeks and I have been practicing cooking Korean food for her. I cook most of the time for us and I really enjoy it. I recently made your bulgogi recipe and everyone here loved it. I have a problem though… I CANT MAKE STICKY RICE ;(. Can you do a detailed video or even just a paragraph to help me? I really want to make kimbap for her when she gets here!

Seonkyoung November 19, 2014 at 2:41 pm

Hi Stephen,
You are such a lovely man cook for your loved ones! πŸ™‚
Seems like lots of people having a hard time making sticky rice, but if you know the basic, it’s easier than cooking pasta! I will definitely make a video very soon!(Before she comes visit!)

Yen Mach December 21, 2014 at 8:45 pm

Do you know how to make Korean lunch box “dosirak”? It comes in a metal box with white rice, fried egg, kimchi and spam. I had it the other day at a Korean restaurant and in love with it. Can you please share a recipe for all of us to enjoy the yummy goodness? Thank you.

Caroline January 7, 2015 at 5:21 pm

Hi Seonkyoung,
I love your video on the napa cabbage kimchi! I’m going to make this recipe soon, but was wondering what I can substitute for the fish/ sea food ingredients. Or can I just leave them out? I am allergic to these items. Thank you!

Seonkyoung January 10, 2015 at 9:07 am

You can substitute with the broth on the recipe. Make extra broth same amount as fish sauce and add salt into it. πŸ™‚ If you are allergic to fish, you can also leave out the dried pollack and add extra shiitake mushrooms for flavor.
Good luck and have fun in your kitchen~!

Evy Orian January 14, 2015 at 7:55 am

I just watched some of your youtube videos today and all I could say is Daebak!!! (Awesome!— is that right?)
I just love everything Korean!
I’m also Asian living in NorCal, just like you…maybe we’re just neighbors πŸ™‚ who knows… well, i’d love to! So I can taste an authentic homemade kimchi…coz I just bought one bottle today and then saw your video and you said it’s way much better than store-bought.
I love reading your story. From being a plain housewife to being a tv chef is just so inspiring.
More power! And hope you’ll be able to read (and also make a reply) on my long comment. Btw, I love your kitchen! πŸ˜€

Seonkyoung January 16, 2015 at 9:12 pm

Hi Evy, Thank you for stoping by Asian at Home! πŸ˜‰
If you have any chance, try to make homemade kimchi. You can’t beat homemade kimchi and I know you will fall in love with!
So glad my story inspires you, that’s one of reasons I do what I do. πŸ™‚
Have a lovely day!

cristina February 22, 2015 at 3:21 am

Hello Seonkyung, This is the first time that i watched your video on youtube, and I’m hooked.. Yo u have such a charming and bubbly personality!

Can you please make a video on how to make a Takoyaki?

Thanks and more power!

Seonkyoung February 23, 2015 at 4:17 am

Hi Cristina!
Of course, thank you for your request!!

micheal May 20, 2015 at 8:02 am

Hello seonkyoung was curious if might have any slow cooker recipes. I find some stuff I can some what convert to a slow cooker of Korean cuisine but is really hard to find if any real recipes for a slow cooker and some of the Korean soups seem would do well in slow cooker since the pots are somewhat similar.i do alot of potlucks at work and i always end up making american,mexican,and italian food because limited to something cold or crockpot when comes to work potlucks but would love to share Korean cuisine I tend to make at home with coworkers that never have tried Korean style food.was also curious on kimchi recipe after u place in bag and container do you burp the bag any in the 2 days ?

Seonkyoung June 5, 2015 at 4:12 am

I don’t have slow cooker, so I don’t have slow cooker recipe…yet! Since lots of you guys asking, I probably need to come up with some slow cooker recipes.
To answer your question about the kimchi, I don’t burp them, it’s not necessary. But when I check them, I just air out, just because. πŸ™‚ Hope this helped!

Shawn July 18, 2015 at 4:07 am

Hi Seonkyoung. I really love your site and recipes. I was hoping you could give me some advice. I just started my food blog and channel and I have been trying to figure out how to put text graphics on my videos. I purchased After Effects, but I have no clue how to use it yet. I was wondering what program you used to create your on screen graphics. I would appreciate any help, because I am really frustrated. Thank you!

Nickie Ding February 8, 2017 at 10:18 pm

I saw you today at the San Bruno Google YouTube office!! You were wearing a really cute pink furry vest! Wanted to say hi but was too star struck >__<! I love your videos! I started watching your shows and watched Restaurant Express because you were in it.

Seonkyoung February 10, 2017 at 6:18 pm

Awwwwwww You are so cute!! Please say hi next time!! πŸ˜€

Kelvin February 16, 2017 at 3:47 am

Hi Seonkyoung
I’m gonna to ask you about is this Gochujang?
Can i use this to cook any korean recipes?
If i use it the dish will delicious or not?
What different between it with others Gochujang?

Seonkyoung February 16, 2017 at 10:14 pm

I’ve never seen or heard about that brand before… But I’m sure this one is legit. https://www.orientalmart.co.uk/korean-products/cooking-ingredients/haechandle-red-hot-pepper-paste-gochujang————-1kg

Han February 22, 2017 at 6:52 pm

Hi Seonkyong,

Could you let me know where to buy the wok that you use on all the videos

Thanks so much,

Seonkyoung February 23, 2017 at 4:28 pm

The wok and the skillet I use the most(in the video & real life) are T-fal 8inch non stick wok & large nonstick skillet. The wok is Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution line but I haven’t seen for a long time at the market. But you can find similar ones any kitchen stores or online! Oh also, RachelRay brand makes similar one with a lid!

Jane March 6, 2017 at 5:25 pm

Hi Seonkyoung!
Thank you so much for all your recipes! I’m a fan from Canada and I absolutely loveeeee your videos/recipes. The measurements are always spot on and they’ve helped me win major points in the kitchen with my korean husband. I was wondering if you would one day do recipes for food that you eat when you are sick with a cold/flu? I’ve made your easy ddeok guk and it was great! but I was wondering what your take of jook would be and your kongnamul guk bap. Thanks for everything that you do!

Seonkyoung March 13, 2017 at 5:28 pm

Hi Jane! So glad my recipes are helpful in your kitchen!! Me and my hubby don’t get sick with cold/flu not that often, (we are so lucky!! maybe once in a couple years), so I’ve never had to cook any food for sickness. But it’s really great idea for me to have those recipes for you guys!! I will start work on some jook & kongnamul gukbap, since I love those dishes even in regular days! πŸ˜€

Seonkyoung March 13, 2017 at 5:29 pm Reply
Stefan March 15, 2017 at 4:15 pm


First of all I just wanna say how amazing and sweet you are! I’m was not a fan of any Asian food, but after watching your videos I started liking it.
And all that wouldn’t happen if my best friend, Rajko, didn’t show me your videos.
I am sending you this e-mail, hoping that you would read it at least, to ask you for a favour.

My best friend Rajko Vasic, who simply looooves you and everything you do, is celebrating his 20th birthday in April.
I was hoping to make him a huge suprise with you. If you are able, and if you want, I would be so thankful if you can record a few seconds video
just saying “Happy Birthday Rajko!” and on his birthday I will show it to him. I’m sure it won’t take more than 5 minutes of your time to record it and send it to my email while it would mean sooo much to him! ^^

I wanted to make a video with our pictures, best moments together and for a huge suprise it would be you wishing him a happy birthday. He would be stunned I’m sure, last night you answered him on your latest video on YT simply by puting a “heart” and he immediatly took a screenshot and sent me that picture screaming and saying he can literaly cry cause of happiness!

Please, if this is not a problem for you, let’s make my best friend happiest person in the world on his 20th birthday!

Thank you so much for your time, keep up great work,


Ed March 16, 2017 at 12:23 am

You are my go to whenever I’m attempting to cook Korean food! I have done almost 10 of your recipes and it is AWESOME!!!! Keep it up! I enjoy watching all your videos and trying out all your recipes!

Scooter Ivy March 17, 2017 at 10:15 pm

I watched your Korean Street Food video posted to Youtube on 5/4/15. I wish I could sample them all. At 1:34 you showed Tteok-galbi meatballs – deep fried and placed on skewers. Have you done a show/recipe featuring these? I tried looking but didn’t find it.

Joe March 22, 2017 at 6:56 am

Hi Seonkyoung,

I love your videos and recipes. I was wondering if you could do a video on Szechuan Spicy Green Beans. I’ve seen a few videos on YouTube, but they aren’t very good. I’d love to see your take on them.
