My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I watch a lot of K-Dramas and the food in them is always amazing. I had a lot of fun reading through the recipes and was excited that I could make them at home. Also seeing some of my favorites like Record of Youth and It’s Okay Not To Be Okay. The pictures of the food were wonderful. I can’t wait to try to make some of these myself.

My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
