  2. 190419 ‘4 Wheeled Restaurant’ Shinhwa’s Eric Highly Praised by Lee Yeon-Bok, Lives up to His Nickname “Three Meals A Day E-chef” + EP.1 (Comprehensive) Eric, Shinhwa-member-turned-chef-apprentice for chef Lee, showed his skills and proved his worth of his nickname ‘E-Chef’ from Three Meals A Day. Before leaving for America, Lee Yeon-Bok showed his enthusiasm for Jajangmyeon to the producers through an interview saying, “I want to try Jajangmyeon wherever we go. This style of Jajang-Myun only exists in Korea. I was most curious about how it will be received in China. But now I’m curious about how it’s going to be like in America. I’ve never seen an American eat Jajangmyeon. Let’s try it out even if it fails.” As soon as they arrived in America, they went to see ‘Bok’s Food’ truck which is named after chef Lee Yeon-Bok. He was all smiles after seeing a bigger kitchen compared to the kitchen from last season. The producers upgraded the size of the food truck. There are now four stoves. Lee Yeon-Bok showed his satisfaction by saying, “This is well made. The truck got bigger. The interior is upgraded a lot compared to the one we used in China. I think we’ll be able to work more comfortably.” ‘Bok’s Food’s first menu were Jajangmyeon and Tangsuyuk. The crew sold Jajangmyeon for $7, Tangsuyuk (crispy sweet & sour pork) for $9 and the combo of both for $15. Producers announced that the initial capital is 2 million wons (approximately USD $1,800) and all profits will be donated to charity organizations. The first spot for the food truck was LA’s ‘Hermosa Beach.’ The beach is popular among locals for restaurants and pubs. It was also featured in the movie ‘La La Land.’ The dark horse of this episode was the new kitchen assistant Eric. In a pre-production interview, Eric revealed, “To be honest, coming up with new recipes for ‘3 Meals a Day’ was really tough, especially the setting up. But this times Chef (Lee Yeon-Bok) is here, I’m here to learn more.” When Eric met his ‘LAN cable mentor’ Lee Yeon-Bok, he listened and learnt carefully to every words his mentor said. He was pleased to learn Lee Yeon-Bok’s dumpling recipe. “This recipe is impossible just by looking it up on the internet”, Eric said. He was highly praised for his quick learning and cooking skills by Lee Yeon-Bok. Also in the pre-production interview with the producers, Eric said that he and his wife, Na Hye-Mi, visited Lee Yeon-Bok’s Korean-Chinese restaurant about four years ago. He said, “I personally made reservation and waited for a month. I was looking for a chance to meet him. So when I saw him outside, I asked if we could take a photo together.” Their relationship continued into ‘3 Meals a Day’ when Eric asked Lee Yeon-Bok for his advice on cooking. Eric still admires him as his ‘LAN cable mentor.’ As a kitchen assistant and Lee Yeon-Bok’s right hand man, Eric was busy running and learning. Eric learned how to boil noodles, how to pour Jajang sauce evenly and how to put cucumber garnish for topping from his master. He was also seen tiptoeing over the counter to watch Lee Yeon-Bok when he was far away, showing his passion. Yeon-Bok reacted to Eric’s passion and progress. He improved his knife skills day by day and Lee Yeon-Bok praised him “Oh that’s good, really good.” While watching Eric, Heo Kyung-Hwan also praised, “This is why everybody is saying Eric Eric.” Source: Newsen, News1, OSEN Translation: EricMun.tumblr
  3. Just saw in Twitter that DL will be taping for Happy Camp with The Great Escape cast and Didi on the 29th! Wow! As fan of both Lun and Didi.. I am excited!! Hope we get English subs (request as always) LOL
  4. All except for D but only because we have yet to be shown if DM has a sleeping habit. It is possible though, which led Ryan to shifted his sleeping position to be near her..hehehe. But the almost kissed pic is the trigger for him. He deduced it further through her writing and drawing style (compared to the diary), the text at the gallery, the photographing style (someone mentioned this, I kinda agree too), seemed to make his suspicion stronger. I think later we will be shown how he knew.
  5. Ah ha, he is naturally classic handsome , omg we start to talk about his face LOL.
  6. That's really good start. I didn't expect it that high for cable TV, consider the late time slot during week day. Season 2 had the best timeslot and this is in the upper rating of S2. Hope they can keep up 190419 Shinhwa‘s Eric - “4 Wheeled Restaurant 3 US Edition” A Hit… With 5.2% Viewership Rating On April 18th, tvN’s ‘4 Wheeled Restaurant 3 - US Edition’ had a successful first episode viewership rating of 4% peaked at 5.2% on a paid subscription platform for cable, satellite, and IPTV. Target audience viewership (20 to 49 years old) also recorded average of 2.7% and 3.4% on peak, proving how much the show was anticipated. (Nielsen Korea/Paid Platform/National) “Curious if Jajangmyeon would work globally,” Chef Lee Yeon-Bok with Eric, Heo Kyung-Hwan, John Park’s ‘4 Wheeled Restaurant’ set off to America to show different kind of entertainment compared to the successful Chinese season. From the enormous wholesale market to the reaction of the locals eating Jajangmyeon for the first time, there was a lot of fun to look for. Chef Lee Yeon-Bok and the team displayed their perfect chemistry on the first day of their arrival in LA, getting together to prepare for business. After buying ingredients from local market, Chef Lee Yeon-Bok amazed people by showing his 47 years of experience in perfectly distributing workload to Eric, Heo Kyung-Hwan and John Park as well as preparing ingredients that would serve up to 80 people. The next day, the food truck had its first opening at Hermosa Beach which was featured in the movie ‘La La Land’. It was immediately popular among customers. People used fork and their hands instead of unfamiliar chopsticks to eat Tangsuyuk, all praised “Delicious!” The popularity was so high people were waiting in lines for empty seats. Although veteran Chef Lee Yeon-Bok was initially nervous about the reception of the locals, he was quite happy with the result. Chef Lee Yeon-Bok presented his charismatic leadership. He was seen cooking dishes by dishes quickly navigating through upgraded food truck and never showing weaknesses despite unusual requests like vegan Jajangmyeon. Lee Yeon-Bok’s new apprentice Eric, confident Heo Kyung-Hwan, friendly waiter John Park all showed their tight team work, adding more excitement to the next episode. ‘4 Wheeled Restaurant US Edition’ will be featuring Chef Lee Yeon-Bok’s specialty ‘Bok Dumplings’ next week.

  10. 190617 Shinhwa’s Eric’s perspective on ‘4 Wheeled Restaurant’, what to look for, #Bufferic #Gear #Teamwork Shinhwa’s Eric revealed what to look for on the newest episode of tvN’s ‘4 Wheeled Restaurant.’ On the 17th, Eric shared his thoughts on what to look for on the tvN’s 4 Wheeled Restaurant’s press conference. The press conference was shown through TOP Media’s official Youtube channel. To the question on how difficult it was to work in a small food truck, Eric replied “I haven’t done much experience with running this business so the pace was a bit fast for me. But when customers began to rush in, it was lively and quite fun even though the work was hard.” Eric, who said the team worked like a well-oiled machine, expressed his affection for the team saying, “The kitchen and the front of the house had perfect chemistry.” When asked about the nickname ‘Bufferic’ that he gained during his previous show, tvN’s ‘3 Meals a Day’, Eric replied, “From picking a menu to distributing works, I had a lot of things to juggle at once. But this time, we have Chef (Lee Yeon-Bok) so it is less stressful. We worked like clockwork under his leadership.” When asked who he wants to bring in as a new member next time, Eric answered “I would say Andy. He works hard, is very diligent and efficient.” Source: Mydaily Translation: EricMun.tumblr
  11. What is your most favourite phrase / sentence that come from Wuji that really show his love for ZM? I have two. 1. Even if we can't find the truth forever, i will still believe you. This is like, i love you, I trust you. Wow even more romantic than I love you 2. Him said to monk, in future, i will bring her to Shaolin to pay respect to buddha, to say sorry to show her remorse. In my opinion this sentence show him shouldering blame together with her. So man....

  14. Heads up! A long, crazy a$$ post below. You’ve been warned. Here’s my take on how Hyunnie and Aluu CEOS managed to attend a very popular musical and be almost invisible. Even LDH (actor who played Chairman Byun) couldn’t escape a photo sighting from a fan cam. All pictures I’ve seen of the cast and the fans seem to be pre-show. The cast are in their street clothes and sometimes with no make up. If the cast members are anything like me, buying my silence comes at a very low cost. I’m talking an autograph, a piece of chocolate, a milkshake, pizza, chicken, or pizza AND chicken....(I’m just brainstorming, but you get the idea). I am 99% sure that Wook gave Hyunnie the tickets and because this is all speculation and because I try to be a responsible shipper, I will leave a 1% margin of error. What if.....?!?!? Hyunnie arrives early with some kind of food bribe and spends some quality time handing out autographs and talking to other cast members about how they prepped for the show. Didn’t she mention how hard the cast prepared for the musical in her sweet IG post? How would she know how hard they worked or how much preparation if she didn’t hear it first hand? While she’s chit chatting with the cast, Wook made his quick appearance to take a few pics with the fans in order to create a diversion and drive shippers like myself crazy. It is important to note the huge smile on his face from the pics that did get leaked. He looked like a giddy little girl and I know what giddy little girls look like. I used to be one. All this is happening while the audience is starting to pour into the theater. I think Hyunnie went to the 8pm show so who’s to say she has to be in her seat exactly when the show starts? For this, I need to enlist the help from our dear friend, @Changsky. Does everyone have to be in their seats right at 8 or are people allowed in late? Let’s just assume the latter for my theory to take shape. Everyone is in their seats, cast is behind stage while Hyunnie is ushered to her seat by manager Bangchigu. Since the main hall is empty and everyone is supposedly in their seats, they stop to take a picture in front of the cast board, hence Mission accomplished for the IG bomb later!!!! I’m assuming the lights are dim at this point, which makes it a perfect time for Hyunnie to take her seat to enjoy the show. Even if she is recognized by now, pictures are strictly not allowed. Fast forward to 10 minutes before the show ends, Manager Bangchigu whisks Ji Hyunnie away so she can wait for Wook backstage. The CEOs remain to enjoy the rest of the show. Since I think the show is pretty long and if I remember correctly it lasted for a good 3+ hours. This will take us to 11pm-ish and would be too late to actually spend any quality time once the show ends. Also, I think fairy godmother’s IG post was close to midnight. Once Wook is done with his performance, Hyunnie is already there to greet him with a supportive and congratulatory hug since there are eyes everywhere so they keep it tame, but I wouldn’t blame Wook if he was ninja naughty and kissed her neck or something. Being the perfect gentleman, he comes up with an excuse to walk her to the car. He probably sent manager Bang to escort the Aluu CEOs to the pick up point. Wanting to give the lovebirds some precious alone time, manager Bang and Aluu CEOs drag their feet and take the scenic route walking to their car. The genius CEOs stop to use the restroom (from my own personal experience and regardless of any event that I go to, the ladies room ALWAYS has a long line). Just sayin’. In the meantime, Wook pulls Hyunnie into an empty stairwell and they say their goodbyes, exchange a little pre-white day gift, while kissing for I don’t know.... 27 minutes? Lol! They walk hand in hand to where the Aluu fairy godmothers’ car awaits to take a very happy Cinderella home safe so she can innocently mass murder shippers and haters everywhere....hahaha! And until someone can debunk my theory, this is exactly what happens in my mind....lmao!
  15. He explained it earlier that he doesn't like the feeling of the letting go of the hands. Also there is a flashback (dream?) of him when little, how his hands were forced to let go to be left in front of an orphanage(?) by his mother(?).
  17. I can’t wait to watch this ep. keke The heat is off the charts cos the scarf removal scene is subtly representative of something else. Quite creative. Sometimes I wonder what goes through the Director’s/Writer’s minds when they come up with scenes like these... Curious...why does Ryan not like to hold hands?
