KDrama: 18 Again Review and Life Lessons

I started watching Kdrama a few years ago. It was influenced by my sister who is such a fan of Korean actors and I eventually got curious about it. It started with the trending Kdrama that time which I will write about later on. Initially, it was just a pastime because I really love binge watching tv series. Now, I found myself subscribed to Netlfix, Viu and other Kdrama platforms. The first Kdrama that I will be reviewing here is 18 Again. The story is about a young college couple Jung Da Jung (Kim Ha-neul) and Hong Dae Yong (Yong Sang-hyoon) who was blessed with fraternal twins Hong Shi-ah (Roh Jeong-eui) and Hong Shi-woo (Ryeoun). Their marriage started to fall apart when Jung Da Jung thinks that her husband has been into alcohol and not realizing they have pressing problems other than alcohol. Hong Dae Yong wished for him to turn back so he could fix his life, and suddenly morphs himself into a teenager with a mind of a 37 year old. He began living his life like a teenager and made

Miki Bihon Guisado

One of our menus for media noche includes a quite complicated recipe. Since I failed to bring home some of my ingredients here, I had to uncomplicate the menu and shopping for ingredients there was quite tasky because aside from braving the traffic, I won’t be able to complete at least half of the ingredients I had in mind. So I thought, why not uncomplicate my menu instead. So miki bihon came into my mind because it’s ingredients were readily available in the market.

Ingredients:

  • 250 gms Miki Pancit (round egg noodles)
  • 250 gms Good Life Bihon (cornstarch noodles)
  • Chicken liver, thinly sliced
  • Chicken breast, boiled
  • Shrimp (optional)
  • 1 small carrot, julienned
  • 1 onion, julienned
  • garlic, minced
  • snow peas
  • cabbage, sliced thinly
  • Parsley
  • Premium soy sauce/Kikkoman soy sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Good Life Sesame Oil
  • Chicken Broth Cubes
  • Olive oil/corn oil
  • Shallots

Directions:

  • Boil chicken in 4 cups water and add chicken broth or you may use your own spices. Sometimes I make my chicken stock by boiling the chicken with garlic, onion, salt, thyme, bay leaf and peppercorn. Bring to a boil and set aside chicken stock. Remove the chicken and shred the chicken meat. 
  • Saute garlic and onion until brown. Add chicken liver and the shredded chicken meat until slightly brown. Add soy sauce, pepper and chicken stock.
  • Toss in bihon and egg noodles until all the water is absorbed. Add carrots, cabbage and snow peas until cooked. You also have the option to blanch the vegetables prior to cooking the noodles to prevent it from getting overcooked or breaking into pieces.
  • Drizzle it with sesame oil for added flavor and sprinkle with shallots.
  • Serve and enjoy!


Note: I didn’t place exact amount of seasonings and the chicken because I only made half of 250gms noodles. But basically I only used approximately 100 gms of chicken liver as well as chicken breast.

Let me know if you tried this and share your thoughts.
