MUFFIN-like bread with soft-boiled egg topping

Thanks to my distrust of weather forecasts, I found myself shivering in Seoul last week. Though various weather sites predicted lows of 1-degree Celsius, I still insisted on dressing up like it was spring, foregoing heavy socks and tights in favor of loafers and cotton leggings.

It’s 2 p.m. in sunny Bangkok. Just inches away, Thai-American K-pop idol Nichkhun is slouched comfortably in his seat, lips curved into that closed-mouth smile of his.
