Editor's Picks: 10 Seriously Addicting Korean Fried Chicken To Fall In Love With

Even your Oppa will agree

Korean-style fried chicken has been available in Metro Manila for quite a few years now, but when we watched Crash Landing On You's Captain Ri and Yoon Se-ri sharing fried chicken and beer while watching the first snowfall in that North Korean restaurant, well, it triggered a craving. And that craving’s still with us, even after a lot of reruns of that show.


The secret to good Korean-style fried chicken is the double-frying to achieve that satisfyingly crisp exterior. Plus, the chicken pieces are dredged in flour then tossed in a mixture that might include soy sauce, gochujang, rice vinegar, sesame oil, or honey. The result is an addictive fried chicken that’s become our ultimate comfort food. Just one bite makes us smile, lifts our spirits, makes us want to eat more and more. Pair this chicken with cold beer or soju and you’ve got the perfect meal for your next Kdrama binge.
