‘Go Go with Mr. Paik’ cooks up a storm in Singapore

From Oct 31 to 2 Nov, the bubbly cast of tvN’s ‘Go Go With Mr Paik reunited in Singapore to spend some invaluable time together—with food and sightseeing as top priority of course!

Chef Paik Jong Won, SHINee‘s Onew and DIA‘s Chaeyeon headed to local markets in Chinatown and Little India in search of ingredients to whip up local delicacies like kaya toast, laksa, bak ku teh and chicken rice. With Christmas around the corner, Chef Paik also prepared special party menus for Onew and Chaeyeon, as well as a few ‘special guests’ (you will have to watch the episode when it airs to find out who they are!) Of course, the trio also enjoyed their time around Sentosa, making stops at Universal Studio Singapore and the S.E.A. Aquarium to take in the sights and activities.

Dinoseoul met up with the cast for a short interview yesterday evening to find out a bit more about what they have been up to.

Korean and Singaporean dishes are not too different! 


During the media interview, Onew shared that Korean and Singaporean dishes are actually rather similar in terms of taste, except both countries use different spices! He was also praised by Mr Paik as the better cook when compared to Chaeyeon (“He can express the taste really well!”), and a natural joker full of witty quips!

Bringing fellow idol group members along?

Given the opportunity, Onew said he would bring SHINee’s maknae, Taemin (because he eats really well!), along on a recording of ‘Go Go Mr Paik, while Chayeon picked DIA member Yebin as someone she would like to have around for foodie adventures. Aren’t they sweet for thinking about their fellow members!

On desert island food priorities…


When quizzed on what would be the one item they would choose to eat forever if they were stuck on a desert island, it seemed none of them had any problems with making a decision. Onew immediately picked his all-time favourite—chicken—which ensued laughter among those present as the idol is known for his longtime love for it. Echoing her favourite food from episode 2 of the show, Chaeyeon picked meat, while Chef Paik said he would definitely make rice his staple!

Chef Paik believes that anyone can cook, starting with simple recipes. 


Simple dishes are the best, and this is what Chef Paik personally believes in. In fact, he brands himself as someone who cooks simple dishes during his show because he hopes to deliver confidence to those who are cooking beginners. We think that’s really great—everyone has to start somewhere!
