Bossam (보쌈) is a typical Korean dish where you wrap pork, kimchi and vegetables:

Here is darling Ilwoo making Bossam for his family (after making Gimjang, Winter Kimchi) all day!


The first time I saw these photos I thought to myself, who is this guy? Why is he spotlighted with Yuri and not Jung Ilwoo?!  ^ ^  I didn’t recognize him!  Then when Ilwoo posted the same photo, I had a better look… and there hiding among all that hair was the beautiful profile of Jung Ilwoo!  He looks so different… more mature.
