I’ve been anticipating PBS’s 13-episode Kimchi Chronicles series centered around Korean cuisine, but unfortunately the exact air date for metro Atlanta seems to be a bigger mystery than Jimmy Hoffa’s whereabouts (or his body at least).
Anyway, the show has already debuted in heavily Korean-populated areas of the country such as metro New York/New Jersey, California and the District of Columbia. I imagine metro Atlanta is high in the pecking order due to its respectable Korean representation, but until then I’ll just continue drooling over the show’s teaser videos like the one posted above.
In other news:
