[ Production Note ]

A world of delicious cuisine to enjoy with colorful images!!
The production diary of <Sikgaek> that catches the eye and stimulates the tip of the tongue!!

– Special delicious hunting behind-the-scenes –
The scene of a tense nerve battle between sacrament and bonju against the backdrop of hundreds of jars spread out at Unamjeong Jangdokdae was filmed at Seoil Farm in Anseong, which makes traditional soy sauce. The Jangdoks there are said to have been purchased through antique dealers all over the country and preserved, and it is said that it is impossible to feel the history and elegance of it without seeing it in person. When hunting at Seoil Farm, the producers of <Sikgaek> were amazed at the amount of Jangdok spread in front of them, and they were impressed by the miso soup and the food they prepared there, choosing it as an unforgettable place.

In addition, in order to make a proper charcoal shape among various episodes, not only the staff but also the actors directly went into the fire and watched the process of making charcoal, paying attention to the scene directing. When I went hunting to make real charcoal, I found the Chilbong charcoal village in Wonju, where about 10 kilns are cozy. It is said that the production team and actors who made the shape by burning charcoal in three kilns for 7 days for the filming of <Sikgaek> bought the charcoal as a souvenir after the filming was over. As an added bonus, I steamed in a kiln without charcoal, and enjoyed a three-second samgyeopsal dinner where the pork belly is grilled at once in the kiln, leaving behind memories of three groups in one seat.

Other places recommended by <Sikgaek> include the Gochang Academy Farm with sunflowers and buckwheat fields, the authentic Gongju beef market where guerrilla-style filming took place from 4 a.m. at the 5-day market, and 'Unamjeong', which boasts the best taste in the movie. Gangneung Seongyojang, where the film was filmed. In particular, Gangneung Seongyojang is known as a famous tourist attraction, with dramas such as <The Palace> and <Hwang Jin-i> being filmed in addition to <Sikgaek>.

– Cooking behind the scenes-
A variety of foods are included in the movie <Food Eater>. From doenjang stew and egg rolls that are commonly found around the area, to the best royal cuisine, royal pheasant wanja hotpot. Among these numerous dishes, the most expensive ingredient is A++ beef. In order to shoot a small scene, it was necessary to purchase more than 6 million won of Korean beef. When filming for Sojeong-type, they cut beef and dip it in salt and eat it, and after filming, all the staff and actors invited a nearby dakgalbi restaurant to hold a beef party and have a sudden dinner.

Contrary to the most expensive ingredients, samgyeopsal is a dish that has always been shared with everyone. But in <Sikgaek>, pork belly is also special. On the day of the filming in Gwinemi-gol cabbage field in Taebaek, the taste and atmosphere of the good people in harmony with the taste and atmosphere of the samgyeopsal prepared in the field at the recommendation of the owner of the cabbage field, were made with charcoal, and eaten with high-naengji cabbage directly harvested from the field. It is proud to be the best food of <Sikgaek> and the best memory.
Other mouth-watering episodes such as Hwangbokhoe, Domimyeon, and Seopsanjeok can be found in the movie <Sikgaek>.

Among them, the most memorable dish is none other than 'Rolled Egg'. It was a dish that he thought would be the easiest, but he was able to finish it after many twists and turns. In the end, as much as I worked hard, it remained in my hand even after filming was over, so it became the best food. In addition, Im Won-hee, who is usually left-handed, heard that left-handed people are rare among the best chefs, so she practiced right-handedness while cutting with her right hand. Imwon-hee, determined to show that he cooks with his right hand, is said to have learned how to use his right hand through the movie <Sikgaek>. The most striking thing among Kim Kang-woo and Im Won-hee's culinary practice march is that they have mastered the small formal process that is usually difficult to come across. He even surprised the production team by completing regular small-format training while learning directly by entering a cold storage that is not easily accessible.

Kim Kang-woo and Im Won-hee, who usually like to cook and cook simple food themselves, were given the opportunity to learn how to cook properly, so they practiced happily, and they showed off their skills by passing the food they made to the staff. With the passion of Kim Kang-woo and Im Won-hee, who wanted to show the audience the way they cook themselves, rather than a stand-up, the two will perform many cooking scenes directly without a substitute, showing splendid hand movements.
