Chatting with Esquire Korea, LE SSERAFIM‘s Sakura and Chaewon shared some little-known facts about themselves. One of them was Sakura’s obsession with a particular Korean food.
Looking back on their debut, Sakura remembered eating the same thing for a month straight. She said, “When we were doing promo for ‘FEARLESS’, I had it like twenty-five times a month.”
Because her estimation wasn’t high enough, Sakura added, “I mean like every day.”
The food that had such a chokehold on the Japanese idol was something quite familiar. Sakura declared, “I really love kimchi jjigae.”
Though Sakura ate it the day before the interview, her love for it has become far less obsessive. She noted, “But lately, I haven’t been eating it these days.”
Sakura isn’t the only idol obsessed with some tasty kimchi jjigae. INFINITE‘s L had a similar phase where he ate it every day for three months straight as well.
Kimchi jjigae is so tasty that Koreans and non-Koreans alike can’t stop eating it. See Sakura talk about her love for it here.
