The cast of Korean drama Sikgaek (also titled as Gourmet) – i.e. Kim Rae-won, Nam Sang-mi, Kwon Oh-joong, Kim So-yeon, Choi Bul-am and Won Ki-joon – met the press on June 9 to promote the drama. Image by Newsen [Kr].
Based on Huh Young-man’s popular comic, Sikgaek is about a chef on his journey of discovery to become the rightful heir of Korea’s last royal chef. The drama will start showing on SBS channel on June 17 in Korea.
A movie version of Sikgaek, also known as Le Grand Chef – starring Kim Kang-woo and Lee Hana – was shown in 2007 and was quite a hit. I liked the film, hopefully the drama could be an even better one, or at least just as good.
