    Haven't seen Maangchi's recipe, but the traditional dish is very simple in cooking method as everything is just one pot cooking which is pretty common for Korean food.

    First things on the table with a for sure Asian dish are going to be salt and soy sauce because it's such a common seasoning but he just completely ignored it 😅

    Chris, putting asian pear into the chicken after he cooked it: "This method feels wack to me."
    me, in pain: "Then why are you still doing it?"

    You can tell Chris does mostly western style cooking. Scallions and soy sauce are staples for asian cooking, as is incorporating all the ingredients into a sauce without any prep. They all get soaked and cooked together.

    How does he know without a doubt that it's Gochujang and Gochugaru, but never considers raw chicken, milk and apple?
