Christmas is just a few days away. If you are running out of ideas on what to give a Kdrama or Kpop addict friend, we have a few suggestions for you. We spotted five items from our recent Korean grocery raid that we think they would appreciate.
EXO x Pepero
The white chocolate cookie was one of the hottest items in SMTown. They made the perfect pasalubong for EXO-Ls. We could not contain our excitement when we spotted them in abundance at Assi Grocery for P45. Go hoard. You’re welcome.
Nam Joo-hyuk x Nongshim Prawn Crackers
“Weighlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo” leading man is the face of this prawn cracker. It will be difficult to bring home Nam Joo-hyuk but you can give a snack with his face on it.
Park Seo-joon x Bibigo
The actor of several drama hits including “Fight my Way”, “She Was Pretty” and “What’s wrong with Secretary Kim” also has a long list of endorsements under his belt. We know that Park Seo-joon is the face of a milk tea chain, he is also the endorser of the Korean food brand Bibigo. This package is dumpling called mandu. They are often steamed or fried with a dipping sauce of soy sauce, vinegar and sesame oil.
K-addicts will always appreciate a box of chocolate pies. The pies are SHINee Minho’s favorite. He once made a birthday cake with it. He always gives it as gifts to foreigners. It makes sense that you give this to someone whose life needs to be sweetened up.
What is a k-drama without ramyeon? Instant noodles are comfort food even for your favorite celebrities. Park Seo-joon cooked it in “Yuon’s Kitchen 2” before heading home. It is almost a staple in all of the “All the Butlers” episodes. You can never go wrong giving this to someone who loves watching K-dramas. Just be warned that Korean noodles are almost always spicy. Try to bring the heat down by putting half the condiments it comes with and adding cheese on its stead.
