Perfect for fans of korean food -bussiness orientated variety show !

I think the current rating did not do this show justice . For me this deserved at least 8.5/10.

To me, the show was as entertaining as watching Jinny's Kitchen and The Backpacker Chef . If you enjoyed the other show I mentioned, you probably will enjoy this one too! The level of intensity shown in every episode was insaneee. BJW and his team really worked hard in serving and meeting their costumer's demands and overcome every challenge that comes their way. My favourite workers are John Park ( I love listening him speaking Italian) & Yuri (the mood setter of the show who lighten the mood when things get hectic & tiring). The foods also looked delicious! BEWARE though like when you're watching other food orientated variety show , only watch this during eating / with full stomach .

Just wanna share my thought on the first few episodes in Morocco. Those episodes were hard to watch to me. I feel for the cast and at the same time I understand what local people was worried about. As a muslim myself, I understand why they faced that kinda difficulty. For anyone curious, our religion is quite strict about our food . It's like when a vegetarian have rule on what to eat and what not but I admit we're more strict . I did not blame the cast because of course they did not know this as non muslim not obligated to know this . Just wish the production behind the show make a research firsthand before deciding to sell food in muslim country . You know.. for reasons. Because halal food is not only about no pork , no lard , no alcohol but including the whole process of food making and every ingredient used in the food need to be halal. Like when use any livestock , they must be slaughtered in accordance with the methods prescribed under Islamic law. And like we can eat grapes but when it was fermented to make alcohol for consumption we can't eat it because of the effect of it . And there's many more. These the reason why people had doubts and keep asking about whether the food was halal or not . Anyway , it was a relief things went well for them afterward. This was just my thought on this matter hope it did'nt offend anyone ✌️

Business Challenge Abroad

A genius indeed! We can really see how Paik Jungwon is experienced in food business! I think, no matter which country he goes to, he'll definitely succeed despite the challenges like language barrier & difference in culture.

He confidently face anything & he is inspiring!

Just by watching the first episode, I learned a lot of strategies in starting up a business.

Hopefully in the future, he comes to Philippines too and do this business challenge as well!

More power to you Paik Jungwon and to the team of this show! You produced an interesting show!

From your fan in the Philippines,
Viemer Jhosnil Espacio
