Korean food

my research. So far, I think my project is very successful.

I know that autoethnographic is a kind of research style and a writing style that connects individuals with culture and puts them on social and cultural background. It is an autobiographical study of researchers’ self-life experience, and it is a kind of personal narrative (Ellis,2011). So I used the autoethnographic method into my investigation.

I intend to discover the characteristics of Korean food culture and the differences with Chinese food culture through my own experience in cooking Korean food.

The ingredients, sauces and practices of cooking Chinese cuisine are similar to cooking Korean cuisine. I need to watch the video tutorial once so that I can make the whole dish almost smoothly. I uploaded two videos about my cooking Korean food experience on YouTube.

For the first time, I learned the practice of kimchi soup according to the online…

Experiences of making Korean food by myself

王曉萱 Felicia Wang

By reading articles and searching online, I know that autoethnographic is a kind of research style and a writing style that connects individuals with culture and puts them on social and cultural background. It is an autobiographical study of researchers’ self-life experience. It is a kind of personal narrative.

Because I am a senior foodie, my research direction will be more inclined to Korean restaurant and food practices.

About Field Site, I’m going to go to different Korean restaurants every two weeks. I will record from three aspects:
1. Observe the decoration style of the restaurant
2. Observe the overall atmosphere of the restaurant (including the smell of the restaurant, hygiene, noise, etc.)

Live tweeting-Akira; What is Autoethnographic and the difference between autoethnographic and ethnography.

Part A: Live tweeting- Akira

“Akira” is the work of Japanese animator Katsuhiro Otomo and was released in Japan in 1988. After the release, this animation caused a strong response within the scope of the world. In 2002, it was selected as one of the 20 best science fiction films in the history of the movie by the authoritative film publication <Wired>. “Akira” is also the only film in Asia that is on the list and the single animation.

The story of “Akira” took place in Tokyo in 2019. The society is in turmoil, and the country has become a state without government. This background setting is somewhat similar to Hollywood’s sci-fi action film “Blade Runner” (I also mentioned it in Twitter in class).

This week we watched The Host, a film by Korean director Bong Joon-ho. This film was recommended by my friends a few years ago, but I did not watch it because I am timid and afraid to watch this horror film. It wasn’t until after watching this in class that I found that I had missed such a good movie for so many years.

Through the comments of media and film critics from all walks of life, I found that The Host is not just popcorn entertainment, but an ironic social and political work.

Everyone in the Park family represents the social and cultural background of Korea in different periods. Grandpa is the backbone of the family and a survivor of the Korean War that has gone through decades of military power. After suffering, he cherishes the current family, his children, and willing to use “bribery” means to win any…
