I’ve never been to South Korea but I must admit that the Koreneanovela memes has gotten the Koreanmania into my system. This is mostly the influence of my lola who is a certified fan of Koreanovelas. She has an entire collection of Koreanovela DVDs spanning from the hit Lovers in Paris in 2004 to present. And mind you, she knows if one of her beloved DVDs is missing so never touch it without her permission. As such, it is not surprising that the Koreans have a big impact in my life. Well, you can’t blame me for that because there’s so much to love about Korea!
Here is a quick rundown on the things I love about Korea.
There’s something about Korean drama that appeals to the Filipino audience. Proof of that is the consistent feature of these dramas in prime time TV, not to mention the high ratings that they get. I’m pretty sure my lola isn’t the only one hoarding K- Drama DVDs in our neighborhood. Full House, Boys Over Flowers, Rooftop Prince are some of my favorites!
My appreciation for K-Pop started when I saw a documentary about K-Pop groups. I was amazed with the amount of training that they put into their acts. Unlike young western pop stars that often rise to fame in a short period of time, K-Pop artists are groomed and mentored for years at a time before recording their first song. I also admire the creative use of costumes and color in their music videos. Another thing that fuels the K-Pop craze is their unique, extravagant, and eye-popping personalities. They have a fun and carefree vibe that says “let’s all have a goodtime”.
You can definitely see some Korean influence in our ready to wear fashion lines. Those of you who love to shop online would probably notice a number of Korean brands being sold online or featured as OOTDs. One could say that they are trend setters in their own right. They never shy away from making a splash, and have a decidedly unique way of interpreting current trends.
Well, there is no denying that Korean food has long conquered the palates of the Filipinos. I for one love their Bibimbap, Hetopap, Kimbap, and Kimchi! You don’t have to look far to find these dishes anymore. You are likely to find one in food courts, fast food or restaurant joints anywhere in the Metro.
There is no question about it the Koreanmania has been infused in our culture. But it doesn’t matter if you have been bitten by the Korean Bug or not. Having a taste of Korea is an adventure in itself. Their use of fresh and spicy ingredients can definitely add flavour to your day. Now, there is a new way for you to get a taste of Korea at Wendy’s.
Grab yourself a Wendy’s Kimchi Chicken Fillet & Kimchi Loaded Fries and get a delicious spin of Korean flavour in your favorite western meal.
The Wendy’s Kimchi Chicken Fillet lets you experience a bite into meaty chicken fillet mixed with fresh slaw and rich savory kimchi sauce. Pair it up with the Wendy’s natural cut fries covered in thick and delectable kimchi sauce and crispy bacon bits of the Wendy’s Kimchi Loaded Fries. This is one great way to bring Korean flavours to your day, in a delightfully tasty, incredibly filling, and satisfyingly affordable meal.
The Wendy’s Kimchi Chicken Fillet & Kimchi Loaded Fries brings us flavours from two continents without leaving the Metro. You get a combination of the western flair for sandwiches & fries along with the rich and savory spices of Korea in one meal. That’s two delicious world destinations, only one Wendy’s Philippines.
What makes this work? Here’s a little trivia: In Korea, Almost all ingredients are locally grown, so the food is about as fresh as it gets.
Just like in Wendy’s. They only use fresh ingredients in their meals and do not stock items over a period of time. All their ingredients are delivered fresh every day. So you get to enjoy the same crispness and freshness in your Wendy’s Kimchi meals as you would in Korea.
There have been so many things that I have grown to love about Korea. But I feel that there is more to love about it. Here is a short video that I made to sum up some of the things that you will love about Korea.
I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I loved making it. Oh, and don’t forget to grab your Wendy’s Kimchi Chicken Fillet & Kimchi Loaded Fries for an added Korean flair while watching.
Another new addition to the Wendy’s Menu is the Wendy’s Philly Bacon Mushroom Melt.
It’s 100% pure beef patty with Wendy’s signature mushroom cheddar sauce, crispy bacon strips mixed with crunchy sautéed bell peppers and caramelized onions. This new sandwich along with the Wendy’s Kimchi Chicken Fillet & Kimchi Loaded Fries simply shows how Wendy’s is committed to bringing new world flavours into your meals.
