Such efforts in cross-cultural exchange further strengthen ties between nations and promote mutual understanding.
Haneen mentioned that some Korean food ingredients are not readily available, so she uses alternative options and spends time and effort in searching and bringing them. However, for Haneen, the most crucial aspect is to properly convey the essence of Korean cuisine!
