Win Tickets to the L.A. Premiere of ‘Kimchi Chronicles’!

Printer-friendly version

We all know how amazing a great plate of kimchi can be, but did you ever think that Korean food would get the credit that it deserves? That’s what Kimchi Chronicles hopes to achieve. As we mentioned back in May, the thirteen-episode journey follows Marja Vongerichten and her star chef husband, Jean-Georges, as they travel all over South Korea’s culinary and cultural landscape. The show even boasts some celebrity support with appearances by Heather Graham and Hugh Jackman.

Kimchi Chronicles is making its nationwide debut on July 7th*, but Korean Beacon is giving away VIP tickets to the L.A. premiere on July 6th. We really want our beloved readers to get an early experience of the show’s whirlwind tour of Korean cuisine. That’s why TWO lucky winners will each receive a pair of tickets to the premiere and VIP screening and reception in L.A.’s Koreatown!

To win these tickets:

- You must be an L.A. resident (unless you don’t mind trekking from wherever you may live)
- “Like” Korean Beacon on Facebook (
- E-mail us at with a valid e-mail address and share your favorite Korean restaurant with us and tell us why you love it.

We might feature your favorite Korean eatery in our next Korean Food USA post, so give us details (photos would be awesome). And please put “KC Contest” in the subject line and send us a link to your Facebook profile when you e-mail us. We will be reading all of your restaurant recommendations and announcing the two lucky winners with the most descriptive, mouth-watering homage to their favorite Korean restaurant on Tuesday (7/5 – check your e-mail inbox then!).

The contest ends Monday, June 4th @ 2pm PST, so act fast! You definitely don’t want to miss out on this opportunity. Also, follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@KoreanBeacon) — we’ll be giving away other exciting prizes in the future, so follow and be in the know!
