Happy New Year! Welcome to my new website! It has been in the works for a year now and I am excited to begin in the new year!
It all began in the summer of 2012 when I first watched Boys Over Flowers – I was obsessed with Korean dramas and movies. I enjoyed the storylines and learning about Korean culture. The food in each drama also piqued my interest so I began to delve into Korean food culture. Then I decided I should record everything I’ve learned about each in one place: Melodramas & Muffins.
But my history with films and food has a longer history. While others would listen to music while studying during college, I could focus better while watching a film or show while studying. I also have studied Japanese and Japanese culture since 2005 so that is another influence in my recipes.
I hope you’ll stay around and read my posts and join in on discussions! Though I’ve learned a lot there is still a lot I do not know. I am not Asian nor did I grow up in an Asian country. I depend on research and stories from my peers so I hope I can learn from you all!
P.S. My Happy 2014 banner above is an ode to the newly announced Lee Seung Gi and YoonA couple!!! I love them both and wish them an awesome future this year!
