Trailer for Le Grand Chef: Kimchi War [video]


Here's the trailer for Le Grand Chef: Kimchi War, currently playing in theaters. The prequel to the 2007 film Le Grand Chef, Kimchi War follows two chefs competing in a culinary contest created to popularize kimchi outside of Korea, and was based on a graphic novel. Although the trailer speaks the universal language of food porn, EMD reader bluexmas was kind enough to provide an English translation. Video and captions below.

  1. This film opened the LA Korean Film Festival (KOFFLA) on March 4th, but the tickets were $20. I'd rather eat soon doo bu with kimchi for $20, so we didn't attend.

  2. And I am the cook who makes the world better!

    We have heard this before..?
