TVXQ’s Changmin Shares Reason For Appearing In Food Culture Show + Baek Jong Won Praises His Cooking Skills
During the press conference that was held on November 29, the idol said, “The reason why I decided to appear on this program is because I have been in the entertainment industry for about 17 years, and I feel burdened about going on other variety shows. I’m not funny, and I have nothing to talk about. [On this show,] I can listen to various stories while eating food with outstanding people. I thought it would be easy to do, so that’s why I decided to be part of it.”
After sharing the witty reason, Changmin commented, “I think there are a lot of things I can learn. I was very fortunate to have appeared with these people. I think it was a time when I was able to study valuable things.”
He continued, “Recently while filming this show, I wanted to understand cooking and ingredients a little more. I recently bought a book. It’s called ‘Silver Spoon,’ and it’s like a bible of Italian food. It’s around a thousand pages long, but I want to learn it by setting a goal to try each recipe until my 40s.”
Baek Jong Won praised, “Changmin is very good at cooking. I talked a lot about noodles because I like them. He is knowledgeable about noodles, and when you watch the show, you can see him cooking noodles. While doing this program, I saw a really different side of Changmin. I’ve eaten a couple of his noodles that don’t appear on TV, but they’re as good as those that experts make.”
The chef added, “I think he’s going to set up a noodle restaurant in the future,” and Changmin replied, “This must be why people call you the influencer of the food industry.”
“Style of Western Food” will premiere on December 1 at 11 p.m. KST.
