This is a Kim Rae Won fangush post

Kim Rae Won was in the first K-drama I ever watched so him and I go waaay back (ahem). And now that I’ve picked up Gourmet, I’m all over him once again. He also makes me want to cook when I’ve never really picked up cooking before, and that’s kind of important. Because I am learning the techniques to survival all the time, ahem.

I actually really like watching him — or just his character, Lee Sung Chan — prepare food more than I like looking at the final product. Of course, the final product is good too, but preparation in cooking makes me excited.

Kim Rae Won is so earnest about his character that it makes everybody else on the cast more fun, more meaningful and it definitely gives a subject like cooking more life. And that’s how you know an actor’s good. :)
