Video: Bibimbap commercial in NY Times Square
A pretty cool commercial for Korean food, culture, and bibimbap specifically is airing through December on the New York Times Square video screen. Evidently, there has been an ongoing push to familiarize New Yorkers with Korean Food. I think bibimbap is one of the most accessible Korean dishes to Westerners (I’ll get a recipe posted soon).
According to the blog Allkpop:
“Over 200 different students from Seoul Arts University participated in the CF, in addition to the ‘Infinity Challenge’ members and the Nanta performers. The result was a stunning and vibrant CF, which also exhibited other traditional Korean arts such as nongak, janggu dance, tae kwon do, the fan dance, and ganggangsullae.”
I really liked the use of the traditional arts throughout. Take a look and let us know what you think!
