Korean Dishes Kpop Idols Love
Kpop idols receive a variety of things from their fans. Most of it is the usual, such as stuffed toys, notes and clothes. There are those who dare to send more unconventional things, such as their hair, but things like that fall under the category of “strange things never to give your idols” kinds of stuff.
One of the things that actually caught my attention is how some of these fans go the extra mile and buy their idols lunch. It’s actually quite common for fandoms to send food to their favorite Kpop idols.
Of course, who isn’t happy seeing their favorite having a hearty meal and eating well? And who isn’t happy when someone sends them food?
Here are some favorite Korean dishes of Kpop idols:
Korean Fried Chicken
You could say this is another version of KFC. Spicy fried chicken that’s been fried twice and with lots of spices.
Idols who love this dish: Onew (Shinee), Doojon (BEAST), Kai (EXO-K).
This dish’s main ingredient is tofu, mixed with other ingredients such as meat, veggies and sea food.
Idols who love this dish: Donghae (Super Junior), JB (GOT7), Gyuri (Kara).
Who doesn’t love BBQ! Aren’t you getting hungry just looking at this meat skewered on a stick and grilled to perfection?
Idols who love this dish: Victoria (f(x)).
Korea’s national food! No meal is complete without kimchi. There are different ways to prepare the dish, such as using radish, cucumber and scallion, but the most common ingredient is cabbage.
Idols who love this dish: Gongchan (B1A4).
It’s spicy, sticky and yummy. This is a very popular Korean street food and consists of rice, gochujang and fish cake.
Idols who love this dish: Dara (2ne1), Sunye (Wonder Girls).
Samgyeopsal (Grilled pork strips)
This dish is mainly served in the evening when most people take time to unwind. This dish is usually paired with grilled garlic and lettuce wrapped gochujang.
Idols who love this dish: Hyuna (4Minute).
Korean Chop Steak
Another popular meat dish! I swear Koreans love anything that has to do with meat, and anything that’s spicy.
Idols who love this dish: Seung Yoon (WINNER).
Now the following dishes may not be Korean, but they are still worth mentioning, since there are specific idols that directly come to mind when talking about these foods.
Gogumas (Sweet potato)
The starchy sweet potato is common in Korea and it’s quite popular with the idols too! Seohyun (SNSD) loves eating sweet potatoes.
Park Bom (2ne1) loves corn and pudding and is not afraid to show it!
Chansung (2PM) loves his bananas! He’s known to bring them in bundles and eat them in full bites.
It’s no surprise Kpop idols love food as much as we do! When you want to be more daring in showing your dedication and you want to send your bias food, you should take note of their favorite meals.
Or you could just buy these dishes and eat them yourself and connect with your idol on a “foodie” level. Looking at all these dishes makes my mouth water. Have you tried any of these Korean foods? Which one is your favorite?
