Good production. Weird message.
Put some adjectives in one bag and the names of K food in another.
Draw one slip of paper from each bag and late fate decide the rest.
The best adjective-noun combos since Sparkling Korea.
BTW, when will Koreans stop calling bell pepper paprika?
Romantic Mushroom, eh?
Fit milk…is it fit in the same sense as the guy in the video we discussed earlier or is it the other way around? Seeing as he is a boring, pasty, whitey I would say its the latter.
Yuna will know, she is an expert on the usage of the word ‘fit’
Notice the lack of the word FRESH. As in no fresh vegetables at any meal. I get that fermentation can be healthy and that in the times of Dangun there were no fridges so the bear had to eat fermented garlic but really, isn’t it time to incorporate some fresh vegetables into the national diet? A vegetable can be delicious without being smothered in salt and rotted.
Thanks for your consideration Korea Agro-Fisheries Trade Corporation.
OK, I get some of them, but milk? That’s unique to Korea? Or is there something special about Korean milk no one’s ever explained to me? As for the mushrooms, there are a good dozen mushrooms that taste far better than what they showed, even in Korea (and don’t get stuck in your teeth).
Korea gave milk to the world. Everyone knows this.
… and pizza.
Korean milk has 4 seasons.
Actually, four different recipes for four different seasons might be a good idea.
The fishery guys know they need to consider a pitch that has branding potential but this is not quite as polished as it needs to be.
Trying to rebrand “milk” as Korean food® is pretty hard to believe.
happy to see them support japanese ramen.
That’s truly awful. Quite funny though, in a twisted kind of way.
I mean it has 4 seasons in the actual milk. If you drink it it fills you full of spring, summer, winter and fall, while western milk just fills you full of fat
Don’t ask me, I am trying to uncurl myself from a contorted physical reaction this GODAWFUL thing has put my body in. 손발,온 몸이 다 오그라들었음.
It’s just the pits! It’s like 1000000 times worse than this
Can’t fault the production values – I’ve always thought Korean creatives, editors, typographers and designers are world-class.
The content on the other hand…who is this aimed at? Why?
What? No rice?!

Very weird. Nice production value though.
A new girl band?
Wow, S. Korea has apples and pear at 3 – 5 times the price as America. Now only if the 3 thousand Won each(approx. 3 dollars + ) pears weren’t black in middle.
In the US (the part where I am from, at least) we call “bell peppers” what they labeled “paprika”. Is there any other English-speaking country that calls them paprika? If not, why didn’t they say red peppers, green peppers, bell peppers, etc.?
The production values were high, but the content was ridiculous. Other than the kimchi and red pepper paste, nothing was uniquely Korean. Who was this advertisement targeted towards? If it was a “look at how awesome our food is” targeted at Koreans living in Korea who have never experienced another culture, then I guess it could be considered a success. Otherwise, I would consider it a waste of money.

“Is there any other English-speaking country that calls them paprika? ”
No. In English paprika is the spice made from ground peppers (typically bell peppers and/or chili peppers). You can refer to a whole dried pepper as paprika if it’s destined to be ground into a powder.
