Celebrity chef and entrepreneur Hong Suk Chun, who operates several popular restaurants in Seoul, talks about his friendships with some of today’s most popular stars!
On the October 25 broadcast of the tbsFM radio show “Ji Sang Ryul’s Bravo, Bravo,” Hong Suk Chun is asked about his restaurant and how it is a date spot for many celebrities. He acknowledges that it is, saying, “On their fourth anniversary, Jung Kyung Ho and Girls’ Generation member Sooyoung came together and spent time [at my restaurant].”
He reveals he is even close with non-Korean stars, saying, “Foreign celebrities, like Eric Benet, have come to my restaurant as well. I became friends [with Eric Benet].”
Ji Sang Ryul adds, “But when foreign celebrities come, they’re not recognized by a lot of people. Last time, I went to a night club with Usher. Some people came up to me and asked, ‘Who’s this dude?’ and didn’t recognize who Usher was.”
