  • - Hey, guys, it's YB.

  • I'm in Korea.

  • It's my first time being back in 10 years.

  • I was born in Seoul, South Korea,

  • and then I moved to America when I was 12,

  • and I came back briefly when I was 14,

  • but since then, I haven't been back.

  • The thing is, I'm not in Seoul.

  • I'm in Jeju, which is like the island of Korea.

  • My parents moved here,

  • and it's actually my first time being in Jeju.

  • I'll do what I do best, eating.

  • So, I'll show you guys what I eat on this island

  • and all the experiences I have.

  • So, come with me.

  • So, for breakfast, we went to Paris Baguette.

  • In Korean, it's Paris Baguette

  • It's a bakery super popular in Korea.

  • I think there are some in America too,

  • but they're Korean bakeries.

  • They had some of the breads I used to grow up on.

  • This is one of them.

  • See, it's shaped like Hawaiian bread,

  • but inside there's kind of cheese layers in it.

  • There is this pastry with sweet potatoes in it, really good.

  • This is my favorite, it's called soboro-ppang.

  • It's known for the bumpy crust,

  • and it tastes like peanut butter.

  • This is tteokbokki, spicy rice cake along with fish cake,

  • dumplings, and boiled eggs.

  • This one also has ramen in it.

  • Korean fried chicken.

  • This one is sweet and spicy, called gangjeong chicken.

  • This one is a regular fried chicken called huraideu

  • and my favorite, soy sauce chicken.

  • It's called ganjang chicken.

  • They're crunchy and juicy with perfect amount of salty,

  • and we ate two whole chickens.

  • So, Cheju-do is a volcanic island,

  • meaning it was formed by volcanic eruptions.

  • That's why there are a lot of rocks everywhere.

  • (speaking Korean)

  • So, I got a guide to learn more about the rocks.

  • It says Jusangjeolli is a column-shaped joint

  • that commonly develops in basaltic rocks in a lava flow.

  • These tall statues are all over Jeju

  • and are called dol hareubang,

  • which translates into stone grandpa.

  • They're made from hyunmuam,

  • the volcanic rocks with holes my mom just talked about,

  • and they're know to protect the island.

  • And also, I found out about this

  • after I posted a picture hugging one of them,

  • people commented about the statues

  • very closely resembling a penis,

  • and apparently there's a myth that dol hareubangs

  • were indeed shaped after a penis, and if you rub their nose,

  • you will give birth to a son.

  • Thanks, guys, for the info.

  • So, we're gonna try black pork today.

  • In Jeju, it's really famous.

  • How you tell is there's hair on the meat,

  • that's how you tell it's the black pork.

  • Looks like regular pork belly.

  • Wow.

  • So chewy, super tender, so good.

  • - Mm!

  • (laughing)

  • - This is seafood heaven.

  • Sushi buffet, all you can eat.

  • Here we are at Hamdeok Beach.

  • Look how clear the water is!

  • It's still a little cold to go swimming,

  • but didn't stop me from getting in the water.

  • Here is nakji-bokkeum which is spicy octopus,

  • nakji-pajeon, which is Korean pancakes with octopus,

  • and dumpings.

  • You fry it perfectly and very crispy.

  • You can taste the protein.

  • This is kalguksu, a traditional Korean noodle dish.

  • It literally means knife noodles.

  • Kal is knife and guksu is noodle.

  • It's made with knife-cut wheat noodles.

  • Usually, the color's white,

  • but this one has mulberry leaf, so it's green.

  • (speaking Korean)

  • So, now we're at (speaking Korean),

  • which is Seogwipo's National Recreational Forest.

  • But this is just actually a small part of Hallasan,

  • which is a mountain in Jeju,

  • and Hallasan is the highest mountain in South Korea.

  • So, for dinner, we'e going to (speaking Korean),

  • which is apparently really famous for mackerel sashimi,

  • which is very uncommon.

  • It's located at a fishing port in Jeju

  • called (speaking Korean).

  • As you can see, there are tons of boats here.

  • This is the famous mackerel sashimi,

  • (speaking Korean) in Korean, and all the side dishes here.

  • They're right from the ocean, so they taste clean and fresh.

  • The plain seaweed and spiced scallion make perfect combo.

  • After the sashimi, they give you a mackerel soup.

  • It's peppery, spicy, and super savory.

  • So, my mom and I are gonna go get some lunch.

  • We're gonna go look at Porch.

  • It's chuk in Korea.

  • - It's called the Sick Pickle because it helps digestion.

  • - Yeah, so it's good when you're sick,

  • but good also when you're not sick.

  • - These are potato skin dumplings.

  • And my mom got octopus kimchi porridge.

  • - Mm, yummy.

  • - And mine is called maesaengi soup.

  • Maesangi is a type of seaweed that's in Korea,

  • that's what makes it green.

  • Hot, but very good.

  • Oh my God, look at all these Korean snacks.

  • This is heaven.

  • This is one of my favorite snacks, or even a quick meal,

  • Samgak-gimbap.

  • It translates into triangle bimpap

  • like a sushi roll, but triangle.

  • They sell it at any convenience stores,

  • and there are many flavors, but this one is tuna.

  • It's so good.

  • Welcome to a Korean family feast.

  • These are just the appetizer side dishes.

  • The main course is this one,

  • Maeuntang, which is a spicy fish soup.

  • The broth is the best with rice.

  • The giant tower of rocks over there is Oedolgae,

  • which basically means a lonely rock.

  • It's 20 meters or 66 feet tall.

  • It does look a little lonely by itself,

  • but I think it's beautiful.

  • So, today's my last day here.

  • I'm about to go back to L.A.

  • and I'm really sad that it's come to an end,

  • but I had so much fun exploring Jeju Island.

  • I learned so many new things on this island,

  • and it was great to get back in touch with my culture,

  • and most importantly, the food was great.

  • So, thanks, guys, for coming with me.

  • I hope you enjoyed it,

  • and hopefully I can travel to another country soon.

  • So, until next time, Korea.

  • (upbeat music)

- Hey, guys, it's YB.
