U-KISS will be fighting a kimchi battle with each other to help member Eli out with his MC duties.
The battle will be aired through O′live′s K-Pop Tasty Road, a show hosted by singers NS Yoon-G and U-KISS′ Eli. In the show, the two travel far and wide within Korea to complete their ′hallyu star food map′ and in the process learn more about Korean foods. The November 17 episode will feature the top three sights in Korea recommended by K-Pop stars, and Korea′s drinking etiquette.
When the two MCs arrive at a hanok (traditional house) village in Bukchon, U-KISS will meet up with them to experience traditional kimchi-making methods together. In the end the U-KISS members will divide up into two teams, the Eli team and the NS Yoon-G team, and battle to make the finest kimchifor a prize of delicious kimchi bossam (boiled pork with kimchi). Although they were all confused at first, they soon got down to reading the recipe and following it step by step.
K-Pop Tasty Road is a show that joins the concept of the original Tasty Road, a food tour show, with K-Pop culture. It is hosted in English to target global fans interested in Korean food. It will air in 11 countries around the world through tvN Asia and Mnet US from December.
