Published by Darron Toy on

(Numerous great tips on trips) (Lee Hwijae, San E) (Kim Sook, Sung Sikyung) Travelling is a war! Battle Trip! – Today is the first full moon. / – It is, indeed. We eat peanuts and walnuts on such days. It’s called “breaking bureom.” San E, do you know this custom? Up until now, I thought “bureom” was a kind of nut. But it turned out to be the act of… – Biting on the nuts. / – The action? – That action was called “bureom.” / – The action? You thought it was a kind of nut. I thought it was a type of nut. He’s changed since he shot a public advertisement. I studied a lot. It’s not just that. – People mix veggies with rice. / – That’s right. There’s food we eat on special occasions. We eat rice cake soup on Seollal and stuffed rice cakes on Chuseok. We have those seasonal food. Other countries would have that too, right? – Every country has it. / – When you look at food… – You can learn the country’s culture. / – That’s right. That’s why we’ve prepared Foodie Special for the new year. We’ve watched One Shot Tour for the past two weeks. So we’ve learned about the drinking culture of China and Japan. – It was amazing. / – It’s part 2 of the Foodie Special. It’ll be fun. Sook, is there any food… – You cannot forget? / – For me it was in France… Looking at the Eiffel Tower… – Eiffel Tower? / – And eating snails. I had snails. I also ate fondue in Switzerland. – Fondue. / – I liked neither of them. They didn’t suit my palate. They were too rich. – Is that so? / – After watching Battle Trip… I went to Singapore with my parents. I went to Lau Pa Sat, the skewer alley. – The skewer alley. / – The skewers were… Served in such big portions like this. – You end up eating a lot. / – You end up finishing it. – While sweating a lot, right? / – Exactly. I can never forget that flavor. – Skewers in Singapore. / – It was only a while ago. – It’s related to today’s topic. / – There’s more? I can’t forget the noodles I had on the streets that costs around $1 or so in Vietnam. – It’s really delicious. / – I cannot forget it… Despite a lot of MSG inside. I had it with a cool beer. That makes you want to go back. If there’s a dish you cannot forget, it makes you want to go there again. Let’s find out what kinds of food made them go travelling. Let’s meet our client. Hello, I eat noodles at least once a day. I’m a noodle enthusiast. I want to eat a whole bunch of noodles while travelling. I’d like you to plan a trip of “Real Noodle Road.” A noodle enthusiast. Noodles are the best. The 2nd part of Foodie Special is… – Noodles. / – Noodles. It’s called Noodle Tour. – There’s Japanese ramen. / – We’ve got to eat ramen. – We have different Korean noodles. / – Right. Dandan noodles in China, pasta and cold noodles. – Cold noodles… / – They’re so good. – I even had it yesterday. / – It’s better on cold days. – Your kids eat noodles? / – They eat adult portions… – When they eat udon. / – You can slurp it down. It’s good even when it’s soggy. Let’s see what kind of noodles made them travel. Let’s meet the trip planners. – Come on out! / – Come on out. (Taecyeon, Kim Gwanggyu) – He’s handsome. / – Hello. – Hello. / – Nice to meet you all. Welcome to the show. We have some amazing people here. – Seriously… / – In fact… The staff members struggled for about 8 months to cast Gwanggyu and Taecyeon. It took 8 months just to cast them. – Because of their schedule. / – They’re both so busy. The staff chased… Taecyeon and Gwanggyu for 8 months to cast them. But we chased the staff for 8 months to be here. We wanted to be here but we couldn’t. We chased after them for 8 months to be casted here. – You chased after them? / – Don’t lie. I mean it. Yongjin came because he loves travelling so much. – He really loves it. / – Right, all comedians know… How much he loves travelling. Since the theme this week is noodles, you should know how to eat deliciously. – Taecyeon is good. / – How did you like the trip? There’s actually nothing that I can’t eat. Taecyeon eats well. He knows how to eat deliciously. – He’s amazing. / – Is there any food you don’t like? – In fact… / – There is a lot. – There’s a lot of food you dislike. / – There’s so much. This program is weird. – How did they become a team? / – There’s a lot. – I eat everything. / – Actually… I went to a famous dried yellow corvina… – Restaurant with him. / – Dried yellow corvina? – I was really surprised. / – Why? He only ate the side dish glass noodles. – Instead of dried yellow corvina? / – Didn’t it suit you? I like glass noodles. Glass noodles is delicious. In fact, I can’t take spices very well but this time, I ate very well. – You ate well? / – Really? – It’ll be on the footage. / – If you lie right now… We’ll all find out the truth from the footage. You’ll see everything from the footage? Just be honest with us. It’ll be the ultimate true eating show. – Alright. / – You ate well, right? In fact, my brother and I are both known for our love of noodles among comedians. Since I love noodles, the theme was perfect for me. I enjoyed them all. Yongjin also ate a lot. We’re now about to go on our trip. Taecyeon and Gwanggyu, where did you go? We went to Vietnam. – Vietnam? / – Vietnam. – He doesn’t like spices though. / – Yes, we won! Where in Vietnam did you go? We went to Hanoi and Haiphong. – Haiphong. / – Haiphong. – Hanoi and Haiphong. / – That’s where we’ve been. Vietnam is the country I can’t forget because of its noodles. We can win. We went to Hanoi to try its original flavor. Did you eat well on this trip, too? – I ate well. I was… / – Did you eat a lot? Really happy but… – “I was really happy but…” / – Exactly. – That means… / – According to Taecyeon’s itinerary… I followed him and had a great time. – It sounds a bit… / – It sounds a bit… Like a parent who were sent on a trip by their children. It’s like he was a good son. “Thanks to you, I had a great time.” You didn’t carry him on your back, did you? – Taecyeon came up with… / – Taecyeon… A nice itinerary so I ate well and relaxed well. – Is that so? / – Sechan and Yongjin. Where did you go for the Noodle Tour? – Where? / – We focused on the theme, noodles. That’s why we ate udon. – Japan! / – Japan. – Japan. / – We went to Japan to eat udon. – Udon is really delicious. / – Udon Tour. The thing about udon… – You want to switch teams? / – Sikyung. – Can we switch right now? / – Sikyung. – It’s a bit… / – Gwanggyu will pout. – You should look after an elder. / – He sulks easily. Where in Japan did you go for the udon tour? Have you heard of Sanuki udon? – Yes, I have. / – We’ve been to its home. It’s Kagawa Prefecture. Do you know Takamatsu of Kagawa Prefecture? – You don’t, do you? / – I’ve never heard of it. – Shodoshima. / – I don’t know. We’ll introduce the places you’ve never heard before. It was our first time, too. We already know about Tokyo, Osaka and Sapporo. – Today… / – It’s really tough. We have 100 people in the audience who will be judging udon and pho fairly. – Hello. / – Welcome to the show. I’m glad to see you all. It’s the match of the century, pho vs. udon. Elders first so let’s watch the trip to Vietnam first. – Shall we go first? / – Sure, I was standing for too long. Let’s sit down. We just started though. I thought we’d be sitting on a sofa from the start. It’s only been 5 minutes. There’s no couch on a stage these days. Normally, you are seated for the morning shows. This isn’t a talk show. We just started. Gosh, Sikyung. We still have quite a bit to go. – You should sit down first. / – Have a seat. Thank you. It’s the very first time. No one has ever done the opening sitting down. I got injured from the Vietnam War. – The Vietnam War? / – What nonsense. – Are you over 100 years old? / – Have a seat. We’ll first show you the map. Vietnam is long. – Haiphong is on the other side. / – It’s very long. It takes about 4 hours and 50 minutes by plane… – From Korea to Hanoi. / – It’s close. It’s closer than Ho Chi Minh. – Hanoi is located further north. / – That’s right. Were you okay? You’re someone who sits after 10 minutes of a shoot. Was the 5-hour plane ride okay for you? You lie down on a plane. I wasn’t lying down. Come on. We went there with a low-cost airline. – I’m serious. / – Of course. Taecyeon is tall. You’re supposed to convince the judges to go on the trip. – That’s right. / – That’s what you need to do. – That’s right. / – Make it sound nice. Are you telling them not to go? This is a first. Later on, you have to reveal your budget. Most importantly, it was Noodle Tour. There was a plenty of pho introduced on Battle Trip. – There was too much. / – There was a lot. I think you would’ve had the same stuff. Was it different? Since it’s the home of pho, there were so many different kinds. You’ll feel the difference from the ordinary pho. Do you like coriander? I don’t mind coriander but since he couldn’t take any spices… In fact, seeing Gwanggyu eat made me think that those who can’t take spices will be able to figure out what food to avoid. That’s right! – It would be a good comparison. / – Right. It’s great information. Information to avoid. Those who like local food like me would follow Taecyeon’s choices… – And decide to go. / – Exactly. Alright, let’s go on a trip now. The 2nd part of the Foodie Special, Noodle Tour. Let’s go on a trip. – Have a seat. / – You were studying? – I was. / – I know nothing about Vietnam. – Is it your first time going there? / – Yes. – Didn’t you perform there? / – I thought so but I didn’t. Really? Didn’t you say we’re going for burning? Was it backpacking trip? – It’s Danang. / – Danang. – Danang. / – He mistook Danang for backpacking. Do you like noodles? I do like them. – Is that so? You like them? / – Of course, yes. Okay, so I’m… Thinking of taking you to Hanoi. – Hanoi? / – Hanoi. Vietnam. I love Vietnam. I love this kind of stuff. It looks delicious. – I love it. / – It’s the home of pho. While eating a variety of pho… – You’re okay, right? / – I don’t mind any of that. I like everything but spices. That’s the biggest problem. There are spices in all kinds of pho. – They all have spices. / – Right. I should learn the Vietnamese expression to leave out the spices. Spices, die, die. Die, die? We’ll have about three meals there, right? In a day? – No, in total. / – In total? Will you have only one meal a day? I’m on a diet these days… – Fasting. / – Why do intermittent fasting here? – It’s supposed to be a food tour. / – I hate… Eating on shows like “Three Meals a Day”. Is it okay for you to say things like that? (“Three Meals a Day…”) (Taecyeon and Gwanggyu plan their Hanoi Noodle Tour) We’ll be able to go here as soon as we arrive. (What’s the name of their tour?) The key concept of our tour is noodles. – Noodles. / – Yes, for we’ll have pho. You didn’t mean nude? – Noodles. / – Say something… Appropriate for the show. It’s because I was with old people, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. My apologies. I was thinking Noodle Nude but I guess it won’t work. How about Team Zeus? – What is that? / – He’s so old. Zeus? Vietnam… How about Good Morning, Vietnam? You didn’t see that great movie? Don’t you know, “Good morning, Vietnam!” Good morning, Vietnam! (“Good Morning, Vietnam,” 1987) Be a radio DJ for me once. What are you suddenly talking about? What’s with this disconnecting flow? That’s why Na Yeongseok didn’t cast the two of us. (About to lose it) My uncle injured his back in the Vietnam War. (Will their Noodle Tour be okay?) Since you don’t know about this, as your Guide Ok… Take one zero off it and divide it by two. The chitin that comes from crab shells… – You even know that? Chitin? / – Yes, yes. (Ok Taecyeon, the knowledgeable tour guide) It’s computer graphics, I didn’t have that flag. What a surprise. I thought it was stuck like the sword in “Guardian.” You must ride scooters in Vietnam. – Are you buying this for me? / – Of course! I’ll pay. Oh, thank you. I used to brew coffee. Where are you from? We’re from Germany. My name is Kim Gwanggyu. Vietnam is known for its coffee. (Gwanggyu is old and balding but he has everything) We’ll see you in Hanoi. – Good Morning, Vietnam. / – Vietnam. – It’s cheap. / – A plane ticket is $147? – People all gathered. / – How did they find out? You didn’t announce it but everyone knew. – That’s right. / – He still has it. – But… / – We can’t even see Gwanggyu. I’m so embarrassed. Why am I even here? Nice. There are people outside as well? – We finally arrived. / – Indeed, 2PM is… Good Morning, Vietnam. We’re here. We’ve arrived. So many fans have come here. – Where are we going first? / – One Pillar Pagoda. – There… / – It’s a landmark with one pillar. We’ll go there first then there’s a cemetery in Ho Chi Minh. We’ll go there as well. – You’re speaking very fast. / – I’m feeling impatient. – Shall we go? / – For our Noodle Tour… Good Morning, Vietnam! You must’ve felt embarrassed to say that… – In front of your fans. / – It felt as though… I was becoming smaller. (Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and One Pillar Pagoda first) It started raining. It started to rain as soon as we got here. The weather in Vietnam is… This is… Where are we? – It’s One Pillar Pagoda. / – One Pillar Pagoda. Along with the temple, there is a mausoleum of the very first president… Who worked hard to free Vietnam. That’s how the mausoleum looks like? – How unique. / – It’s like a royal tomb. First, we’ll go to One Pillar Pagoda. – It’s the first national treasure? / – This must be it. There are so many people lining up to get in. (An old temple built in 1049 which represents Hanoi) It’s a temple built on top of a pillar. It’s built on a single pillar. Money, money. – Gosh, you brought money. / – I’ll put some money. You’re really rich. I should insert about this much. – I wish you well. / – My wish is… I wish you happiness and health this year. (This place, however, is…) (Where people come to wish for a child) – Those who want a child… / – Gwanggyu. – Do you want a kid? / – My gosh. I didn’t even know about that. (Why did he desperately ask for a baby?) Do you put money in it and wish for something? – People are waiting so let’s go. / – Let’s go. Now… Let’s go to the first course of the Noodle Tour. Let’s go have some pho. – Let’s go. / – You must eat pho in Vietnam. I already want to eat it. It looks amazing. – What’s on top? Coriander? / – They’re green onion. Coriander and green onion. – Beef pho. / – Beef pho. – Our first pho. / – Is this our first pho? Yes, we’re here to have some. I hope the spices won’t be too strong. I’m worried that you might not be able to eat it. – I actually can’t eat coriander. / – That’s right. I’m a picky eater. I’d like to say that I can eat everything… – But it’s obvious if you lie on TV. / – Of course. We will be honest. If it isn’t good, let’s be honest. Yes, we’ll say that it isn’t good. It’s here. This place has a long history. It opened from the year I was born. – It was open since 1979. / – 1979. Gosh, it looks delicious. (Taecyeon looks around) It’s 50,000 Dong. (50,000 Dong?) How much is that? If you want to change it Korean Won… Remove one zero and divide by two. That would be… But we’ll order two bowls. That makes it 100,000 Dong. – One less 0 from 100,000 is 10,000. / – That’s right. – Divide 10,000 by 2? / – Divide it by 2. – So it’s $5 then? / – That’s right. – $5 for 1 bowl? / – No, for 2 bowls. It’s $5 for 2. – It’s $2.50 for 1. / – That’s so cheap! It’s cheap. It’s on me. Thank you. There’s only one menu here. – The place is packed. / – It’s crowded. – It must be really delicious. / – That place is… Only known to the local people there. – It looks amazing. / – Not many tourists know it. – My mouth is watering. / – Gosh, it looks delicious. Our noodles are here. Here you go. Our first pho of Vietnam has been served. It’s like ox bone soup with green onion. Ox bone soup with green onion. It’s only $2.5 but the portion is big. – That’s right. / – This seems to be the sauce. Look at the beef on top. – We mix this together… / – That’s right. And eat it with this sauce. You mix all three of them? We should see how others are eating. Let’s see how that person is eating. – Chili pepper. / – He puts a lot of chili pepper. I guess he likes spicy food. – That’s it. / – He didn’t add any sauce. – Let’s just a bit of chili pepper then. / – Just chili. Won’t it be too spicy? (Let’s try one) (Is it okay?) – Goodness! / – He tasted the chili first? Gosh, the chili pepper. Vietnamese chili pepper is really spicy. I apologize. I’m sorry. Chew one chili pepper. It’s really spicy. (Taecyeon tries a chili pepper) (How is he okay with it?) (He shows a late response) If you visit this restaurant, put in a little bit of chili peppers. It’s very spicy. I was just following the man sitting over there. He put in a lot of chili peppers. It’s spicier than Korean chili peppers. This is a really spicy pepper. Taecyeon, do you like spicy food? – I do but it was too spicy. / – Was it that bad? It was too spicy. – I will add some of this. / – It’s vinegar. Like apple cider vinegar. And they have a special sauce. They have a secret recipe so all I know is it’s made with soybean milk. Really? I put it in. Now it tastes like… Your normal pho. – Really? / – It has its own unique flavor. How would it taste? – He doesn’t like it. / – What’s wrong? – It’s the vinegar. / – Is it because of the vinegar? – Too much vinegar? / – Why did you put so much? You put in a ladleful of vinegar. I thought he was eating cold noodles. (You should have told me sooner) Do you want to taste mine? It tastes different. (The smell is okay!) (How would Taecyeon’s pho taste?) It’s not bad. The broth tastes different with the special sauce. You are right. It’s not bad. – You should go easy on the sauce. / – I see. Don’t put in too much. It looks like spicy rice cake sauce. (Gulp) (Slurps) (Is it good?) The sauce smells a bit fishy. – But it’s good. / – It adds to the flavor. I want to eat it again. – It was delicious. / – Did you like it? I liked it. It was delicious. This was your first pho in Vietnam. How was it? What’s the score? I’d say… – It’s 3.5 points out of 5. / – 3.5 points? There are a lot of other pho dishes we have yet to try. – This is just the beginning. / – That’s right. Then I will give it 3 points out of 5. – Why did you change your mind? / – 3 points. I don’t want to be generous from the beginning. I see. I was worried because of the coriander but this wasn’t so bad. (Beef pho got 3.25 points out of 5) If you don’t like spices… – You can eat it without adding any sauce. / – Cleanly. It’d taste light and clean. – The roads are clean in Vietnam. / – Vietnam is fun. – It looks good. / – It’s a nice place to take a photo. Railroad tracks from Hanoi to Long Bien, there are houses on either side of the railway. I don’t think it’s a fast train. – I bet it’s for a local train. / – I think so. As if it’d be like the KTX in a residential area. A train running at about 300km per hour… The laundry would go flying. (It looks as if time has frozen on the railway) – The train runs so close. / – There’s a shop. (Where Vietnamese life is) (Hanoi railway village) There are supermarkets and beauty parlors… – They’re all open for business, right? / – Yes. This place looks like… Busan in 1970s. Did Busan look like this place in 1970s? Yes, it had railroad tracks in some neighborhoods. (A village that seems to suck you into the past) – Briquettes. / – The briquettes look cute here. – The briquettes are small. / – They use small ones. – It looks good. / – What is it? It looks like ground meat… Wrapped in bamboo leaves. When I was young, my friends put some bottle caps or coins on the railway to make a necklace. Really? Aren’t you from the same generation? I’m not from that generation. – Which generation are you? / – How old are you? I look young in the photo. You should take a selfie from above. Looks so young. – Who? / – Me. (Taecyeon..) He seems to have weak ankles. Do you still think you look young? He has fair skin but weak ankles. I do have weak ankles. (I’ve lived with my weak ankles for the past 50 years) (I used to have a lot of hair and strong legs) I want to go back! That’s very old. – “I want to go back.” / – So old. – The place looks nice. / – We should… – Go have our second pho. / – Our second pho. This restaurant is very famous in Hanoi. It’s made of this. What did he say? It uses… – What did he say? / – What do they use? Gwanggyu can’t eat strange foods. – Cha ca? / – Is it cha ca? Here… (♪ Feels something instinctively ♪) (♪ That you will be mine ♪) (♪ The moment I saw you for the first time ♪) (♪ I felt a thrill that I’d never forget ♪) That’s nice. I look handsome in that hat. With the hat on, people can’t see my forehead. Then I won’t look much older than Taecyeon. (It’s the Vietnamese hat, Non La) (He looks cute) Everyone buys that hat when they go to Vietnam. – It’s Non La. / – Right. – Will you buy me one? / – Of course I will. – Go ahead. / – I will pay. (Non La is about $2.50) – Thank you. / – Thank you. It’s right there. Cha Ca Thang Long. – Cha Ca Thang Long? / – Yes. – Okay. / – Let’s get in. (Perfect harmony of fried fish, spices and rice noodles) What is that? – Is it fried? / – It is made with snakehead fish. – Snakehead fish? / – Snakehead fish? – Does cha ca mean snakehead fish? / – Yes. It’s the only menu available. I see. We came here to try it. Yes, we did. I should wash the dust off first. – Pho with snakehead fish? / – Yes. (Fills the glass with Hanoi beer) – Cheers. / – I had a good time with you today. (Gulping down) (Awes) Wow. It’s here. This is the snakehead fish. The smell… You should smell it. – I’ve never tried it before. / – Look at his face. It smells like curry. I smell olive and rosemary. What is this spice? I don’t know what it is. Is it cosmos? – Cosmos? / – That’s absurd. Cosmos? (The smell of the spices…) – Dill? He says it’s dill. / – Dill? Oh, dill. Look. (How would they eat cha ca with dill?) It looks delicious. Put rice noodles on the plate first. Then put some vegetables on the noodles… – Like salad. / – Do you mix them together? There’s crown daisy. And you should put cooked dill and spring onion on it. He just put some snakehead fish on it. I guess he’s putting fish sauce on it. These are peanuts. – He put in three peanuts. / – Mixed noodles? – That’s very unique. / – I want you to try it first. (What would cha ca pho taste like?) Gwanggyu might not like it. – He eats it with relish. / – He enjoys it. I think you will like the fish. – You think I won’t like it? / – I think you will like it. What is Gwanggyu talking about? He can’t hear well. He doesn’t understand what Taecyeon says. The fish is so tender. It’s very plump. (He carefully takes a bite) (Isn’t it good?) People in Korea eat snakehead fish… Like a soup to recover after childbirth. Not cooked in a dish like this. In fact, I’ve never tried it before either. I bet you haven’t. This is my first time, too. – Really? / – Yes. Actually, he did many things related to pregnancy. He wished for a child… And ate some food that’s good for postnatal care. To be honest, I was a bit worried. It is very tender. – It looks delicious. / – The fish looks so good. It tastes refreshing with all the spices. This is better than what I expected. You’ve tried braised monkfish, right? – I like that. / – It’s more tender than monkfish. – I know. / – I’m surprised. – And it doesn’t smell fishy. / – It doesn’t smell at all. The flavor of coriander doesn’t ruin my appetite. It is very nutty because of the peanuts. It adds a nice finish. I was worried about it but this is pretty nice. He seems to like it. Dill doesn’t have a strong scent when it is cooked. – You are right. / – Do you think anyone would like it? That’s right. (Big mouthful) (He’s about to eat the bowl too) One on top. I want to try that. With these small hats… What score would you give this restaurant? – It has to be 4 or 5. / – In my opinion… Gwanggyu will probably rate it 2.5. My decision? He enjoyed it, right? 3 points. – 4 points? / – I’ll do this. 4.5? – In my opinion… / – It must’ve been alright. – It was really good. / – This place will be the best. In my opinion, this place will be the best. – There can’t be anywhere better. / – Really? – It was so good. / – People who dislike coriander… People who dislike spices and coriander will be surprised if they come here. I can’t eat coriander but I can’t tell at all. It’s light and clean. Where else would I ever eat snakehead fish? I don’t need postnatal care. I loved the soft texture of the rice noodles. So the noodles receive a point. Where else would I eat snakehead fish as well? It’s my first time. The snakehead fish gets a point. I’ve never heard of dill. It was stir-fried and the scent went well with meat. So it gets a point again. The most important part was… the peanut and sauce toppings. They were really delicious. I’ll stop at 4 points. (The cha ca pho receives an average of 4.25 points) It’s so good. Isn’t it good? I didn’t have high expectations. He likes it. I was worried but it’s really good. It didn’t smell bad when we first got here. Goodness. – I want to go to Vietnam. / – Cha ca. Vietnam is known for its coffee. Their coffee beans aren’t considered high-quality. But they grow a lot of it. You studied? I’ve taken barista lectures once. I can brew coffee pretty well. Is that so? I didn’t know you were a barista. Let’s go to a nice place like this. – With the lake… / – Great. I don’t normally drink coffee but I drink it in Vietnam. – Really? / – Vietnamese coffee is delicious. – It smells different? / – Yes. We’re going to drink coffee but there’s something… – Special in Vietnam. / – What is it? Coffee with condensed milk. Two or three years ago, they sold coffee with condensed milk on the streets. – Is it really 2 or 3 years ago? / – I meant 20 to 30 years. 20 to 30 years. – Please do a good job as a tour guide. / – I will. – I won’t make mistakes. / – Good. (Where are we?) (Where is this place?) What is this? What’s he looking for? What’s he looking for? (What are you looking for?) We’re going in the wrong direction. I told you to do a good job! What does your father do? Goodness! He’s scolding him. – He immediately got physical. / – He grabbed him. I trusted you and you lead us in the wrong direction. I’m sorry. I’ll do a better job in the future. This coffee shop is a hidden gem. – Really? / – It’s my first time too. That’s why it’s hard to find. – It’s a clothing store. / – That’s right. There’s a coffee shop inside the clothing store? – What’s that? / – It’s hidden. There are many places like that in Vietnam. – This is it? / – It’s tucked away in a corner. – What a new world. / – It’s a new world. – That’s a coffee shop? / – How can we find it? It looks like a family home. They must’ve found it online. They have a chicken like it’s a parrot. Cock-a-doodle-doo? – Isn’t it a normal chicken? / – Isn’t it just a chicken? It’s the Year of the Rooster. It’s nice to meet you, friend. Nice to meet you, friend. – He’s good-looking. / – He’s handsome. What do you want to try? Look at the prices. – It makes me anxious. / – 40,000 Dong? – The cheapest item is 40,000 Dong. / – 40,000 Dong. How much is that? – $2. / – But that actually calculates to $2. – That’s right. / – Why did it take you so long? I was calculating. First, let’s try the coffee with condensed milk since it’s Vietnam. I’ll try this shop’s specialty, egg coffee. – Egg coffee. / – Egg coffee. Egg coffee? – Egg coffee? / – They had egg coffee. Let’s go inside. Wow, look up. (Didn’t you see my legs give out earlier?) That looks so sad. Seriously. I nearly cried. It’s a secret spot. – It’s so high up. / – Goodness. There’s no elevator? It’d be incredible if they did. (Then I think this is it for me) (I’ll be heading home) (You drink the coffee by yourself) (That goes for the egg coffee as well) – What’s egg coffee? / – What is it? Gwanggyu, I must’ve been mistaken. You didn’t know it was so high up? Where are we? There are people up here. It’s cooler here. It’s pretty. It has a rooftop feel. For real? – The nightscape is spectacular. / – It’s amazing. (The entire Hoan Kiem Lake is visible) (Drinking coffee while enjoying the nightscape) – Thank you. / – 20 years ago… When I worked for a company… – You were an office worker? / – Of course. – It’s rich. / – It’s very rich. (The coffee fades in color just like Gwanggyu’s youth) (Does the condensed milk coffee taste the same?) (Wow) (Does it remind you of the old days?) You know the mixed coffee packets? It tastes as if… They added another packet of sugar to it. – It must be really sweet. / – It’s sweet. – It’s extremely sweet. / – Very sweet. – I completely understand. / – Right. – It’s hot in Vietnam so… / – The sugar levels… – Here it comes. / – It’s here. Wow. They mixed it up. – I’m curious about that. / – It looks like cappuccino. I’m so curious about it. (Vietnamese egg coffee) It reminds me of rich cappuccino. It kind of smells like egg. It’s really sweet. (What does the egg coffee taste like?) Your lips look sexy. (Just a moment) He grabbed his hand. – I’ll wipe it off for you. / – No way. – I’ll do it. / – No, I don’t want it. The egg smells good. It’s sticky. – It’s very sweet and rich. / – Does it smell? – A little. / – It’s slightly smelly. (The night deepens in Vietnam) Isn’t it nice here? – The view. / – The view is great. I have to explain as your Guide Ok. This is Hoan Kiem Lake. The lake’s name means… – To return the sword. / – Really? It’s really busy down there. There are so many cars, motorcycles and people. It was really hectic. But after coming up here, I feel much calmer. The wind feels good. Behind the cameras, there are foreigners here too. Hello. Hi, how are you? – Very good. / – Fine, thank you. And you? (Taken aback) Where are you from? We’re from Germany. Germany. Germany? – Surprise. / – Surprise? Germany. – Should we buy them coffee? Ask. / – Germany? (How do I say that in English?) (Whatever) My name is Kim Gwanggyu. (Grinning widely as he appeals with his charisma) (The German women reject him with a big smile) Let’s go to our next destination. You have to look it up again? I’m not sure of the exact location. It’s incredible that you found this place. – Are we walking again? / – I’m low on battery. I need to charge it. – You can charge it? / – Yes. – Like this. / – With that little thing? Yes. Just insert it like this. Let’s head over. It’s only five minutes away. (From the secret cafe to the beer street) (The dazzling final destination of the night) – I love places like that. / – Beer street. – That’s great. / – Beer street. Beer alley. Drinking beer on small stools like this is a charm here. These restaurants are my style. The entire place is full of food stands. The whole street is full of food stands. Like Khaosan Road in Thailand. That’s right. Khaosan Road. I feel more energetic. Open it. – Open it. / – Open the door. (Laughing) There are so many people. So many tourists and locals. You have to go to a spot like that. – The beer tastes good. / – Everyone is smiling. – Everyone’s cheerful. / – It’s fun. What’s this? – It’s marinated pork that’s fried. / – Marinated? Try it. It’s salty and fried. – It looks good. / – It’s only $2.50. – That’s so cheap. / – $2.50 for all that? It makes me want to drink beer. (Beer is summoned) It’s pretty good. It’s not bad. You ate a lot of good food. (What’s up next?) – That looks good. / – Fried milk? Fried milk? – This is fried milk. / – It must be like fried cheese. Fried cheese? How do you fry milk? What does it taste like? You’re speechless? (What does it taste like?) (I can only laugh) It’s not bad. It’s kind of weird. It might taste strange after eating this. – Is it sweet? / – It’s not sweet. – It looks good. / – I don’t know what this is. It tastes like a cream pastry. – Doesn’t it smell like coconut? / – Kind of. It reminiscent of a cheese stick. But it’s much softer like cream. It’s finally here. Is this noodles? ♪ Noodles! ♪ The street makes you upbeat. (Chicken fried noodles is about $4) – That looks delicious. / – There’s no way it isn’t. (We love noodles) It tastes like stir-fried pork with mung-bean sprouts. Like a curry stir-fry. It’s like a Japanese stir-fried udon dish that tastes like a curry. It’s tastier than the Japanese dish. Let’s at least drink some water. I’m so hungry. – Spring rolls. / – That’s a must. Spring rolls are a must. – What’s this? / – Spring rolls. Spring rolls. (Trademark Vietnamese food along with pho) What was your favorite? In my opinion, it’s the rolls. What are they called again? – Spring rolls. / – Spring rolls! I liked the spring rolls the best. How many points would you give them? 1, 2… – 3. / – 3? 3.5? They don’t cool quickly. They don’t have a strong aroma. It fits our palate. There’s nothing unfamiliar about it. It fits right in. I wish I could have a bite. You have to dip it in sauce. It’s delicious. For me, it was… The fried pork. – That? / – I choose this one. (What rating will the fried pork receive?) 5? 4.5 points? 4.5? – It must’ve been good. / – Why give so much point? It was delicious. Pork usually has a tough texture. But it’s really soft. It’s easy to chew. We’re going to keep enjoying the food. – Good Morning, Vietnam! / – Vietnam! Great. (Moaning) I’m exhausted. I’m tired. I should’ve come when I was younger. I’m tired. Are we walking a lot tomorrow as well? We’ll be walking a bit. Tomorrow… – We’re going to Hai Phong. / – He isn’t listening. We’re going to have pho there. There are really fancy rice noodles there. We’re going to try that. Let’s go to sleep. I’m going to wash up. – You wash up first. / – Alright. It was much more entertaining than expected. – It’s really entertaining. / – Right. – You ate well. / – You enjoyed the food. All of the food looked delicious. Typically when restaurants use a lot of spices… When I open the door, I usually can’t even go in there. However the pho restaurants in Hanoi… Don’t have a strong aroma. – The broth is rich. / – That’s such a relief. I heard Vietnamese cuisine is milder… – Than Thai cuisine. / – That’s right. It’s much milder in scent. Tom yum goong in Thailand. It’s delicious. I can’t eat it. – You can’t? / – I can’t eat it. You can’t eat tom yum goong? Can you eat tom yum goong? I’m crazy about it. I can’t get enough of it. – We drink it. / – We like it. – We lick the pot. / – Right. – I like it. / – It’s good. I wash my face in it. That’s strange. Despite that you can’t eat those, you enjoyed those dishes so much. – It was unexpected. / – I was worried. – You went to the beer street. / – That was great. How did you find it? – I love streets like that. / – To be honest… It’s famous in Hanoi. They sell beer while playing loud music like a club. There are many places like that in Southeast Asia. What stood out were the small stools that you’d find in bathhouses. Everyone sits on them while drinking. – It’s cheap. / – It really… Are they open till late at night? It starts at 8 p.m. and closes early. – It closes at 11 p.m. / – 11 p.m.? That’s too early. We start at 11 p.m. In Korea, we tend to start drinking later. In Vietnam, they drink earlier. Did everyone enjoy the first half? Yes. – It was alright. / – That’s a relief. What kind of pho and food await us in the latter half? – Let’s find out now. / – Haiphong. – Let’s watch. / – Let’s go! – Good morning, Haiphong! / – Good morning, Haiphong! – It’s Haiphong. / – Haiphong. Haiphong is located on the outskirts of Hanoi. It’s the third largest city in Vietnam. – That’s Halong Bay. / – Halong Bay. I visited Vietnam 15 years ago. It’s gotten so much nicer. – 15 years ago? / – It’s so developed. It was immensely developing back then as well. The city is so beautiful. (Remnants of the war remain in this place) It’s a place with meaning behind it. – Isn’t that Halong Bay? / – You can see Halong Bay. Haiphong’s specialty is a noodle dish called banh da cua. Banh da cua? It uses crab meat for the broth. So the broth tastes like seafood. Crab broth? It sounds delicious. – You went to such delicious places. / – Seriously. – Banh da cua? / – That’s Battle Trip. (Banh da cua) Here it is. – No wonder there’s a crab here. / – It’s huge. – Let’s go in. / – Let’s go. Thank you for the food. Crab is always good. We’re eating banh da cua? I also ordered nem cua be. It’s spring rolls eaten with vegetables. It’s like Vietnamese fried dumplings. When broth is made with crabs, it usually tastes good. – That’s right. / – Right. Like fish cake soup. – Fish cake soup. / – Right. If you add a big crab… – The broth tastes great. / – Right. Here it comes. This is the nem cua be. That looks good. – It looks delicious. / – It has noodles, meat, shrimp. It’s like sweet and sour pork. You dip it in sauce like sweet and sour pork. There’s a way to eat this. Show me. First add the vegetables. And then… Add a piece of nem cua be. Then add some sauce. – I’ll taste it first. / – You taste it first. It looks so tasty. That’s a big bite. (Getting drawn in) What does it taste like? (Gulping) – It’s pretty good. / – Really? – Taecyeon tastes it first. / – The royal taster. – He’s the royal taster. / – I taste it first. – Then you offer it to the king. / – Right. – You have to see if it’s poisoned. / – Poison? You need lots of sauce. It goes well with the vegetables. Add a lot of sauce. I think you’ll need more. More? No, this is plenty. (I wanted to try it like Taecyeon) – The drool. / – He needs help. – Put it in your mouth. / – It won’t fit. Cut it. Don’t try to eat it all. Those vegetables probably have a strong scent. (He’s eating well) You need a lot of sauce. – A lot of sauce. / – You can’t really taste it. (The sauce isn’t strong) It’s better the more sauce you add. The leaves that look like perilla leaves have a strong smell. – Really? It’s in here. / – I just ate it. Try it. Its fragrance is unique. He’s being too greedy. Your jaw might fall out. He doesn’t seem to like it. He shouldn’t have added that. He added the strongest vegetable. This looks so delicious. It’s like a mix of blood sausage and dumplings. – Fried to a crisp. / – Right, fried well. (He takes a bite without vegetables) (Yum) I can taste the seafood without the vegetables. Nem cua be is 50,000 Dong. – It’s $2.50. / – $2.50. – That’s around $2.50. / – Really? – Isn’t it cheap? / – That’s why I’m treating you. – We can beat Japan with the price. / – The price. (Representative food of Haiphong, pho is here) This is called banh da cua. – This is $2. / – It’s even cheaper. The noodles look different from the others. What are those noodles? Try to smell it. This is… I can smell crabs a lot. It smells like fish cake soup. How does it taste like? – Is it refreshing? / – It tastes like seafood soup. I already told you that… – Fish cake soup? / – Right. Fish cake soup with a big crab in it. – Then it’ll taste good. / – I hope he’ll like it. How do you like it? (Anticipates) It doesn’t suit my taste. What a picky eater. Gwanggyu is so picky. – The spice is very strong. / – Yes, it is. This is something you can’t taste in Korea. I think they used spices popular in the southern area of China. Shall I add vegetables? That may change the taste of it. (The petals of banana flower) I don’t like this. You should add these and eat it. – Mix them together. / – To your taste, right? I think you need some sauce. (Wary) – No good? / – Hmm… Everything was good up till now. – Until yesterday. / – Right, until yesterday. But today, I think I’ve reached the limit. – He added hot sauce, too. / – Hot sauce? That is the hot sauce… – You can easily see in restaurants. / – Okay. Here we go. It tastes different with hot sauce. The taste… My mouth is watering. – Why? / – It must be too hot. – Too hot? / – Too hot. This restaurant… It doesn’t taste good? – Taecyeon doesn’t like it, either? / – No. To enjoy this, I think you need to get used to the taste. – I can imagine the taste. / – Me, too. I can still recommend this to someone who wants to taste authentic Vietnamese food with strong spices. – And if you’re tired of meat soup. / – Right. If you’re tired of pho… If you want to taste seafood soup… – But the thick noodles look great. / – What is that? Just the noodles. So I have our Non La again. ♪ Non La, Non La ♪ How many out of 5? I think it’ll get the low score. My score for banh da cua is… 1. 2. 3? You are generous. Do you really think I would give such high score? What was that? If I think of you, I want to give 4. But… – Did he give only one? / – Gosh. – Because everyone’s taste differs. / – Sure. – He adds 0.5 point. / – Then 1.5 point? – It’s 1.5. / – It’s 1.5. I wonder what your score is. Taecyeon… It tasted very different from what I expected. I feel quite disappointed. You’re not going to… Give less points than me, are you? – Is it 0.5 point? / – Just 1 point? – He should be honest. / – I’ll score it 2. 2 points. Both of you didn’t like it very much, did you? – But it looks delicious. / – It does. Especially the fried stuff. You can’t have that anywhere else. One of the attractions in Haiphong is… – Motorcycles. / – Motorcycles? Motorcycles are the main means of transportation. – There are motorcycle taxis. / – Are there… – Motorcycle taxis here? / – Yes. – Do we ride them? / – Yes. I got the taxi drivers. Hello. How much? 5? You mean 50,000 Dong? – It’s 50,000 Dong. / – 50,000 Dong? Please make a discount to 30,000 Dong. Please make it 30,000 Dong per person. (He wants a discount from a taxi?) Long time ago, Gwanggyu went through a lot… How much is it? They want 50,000 Dong per person. – But I… / – How much is it in? – It’s $2.50… / – Yes. Don’t ask for a discount! $2.50. – I’ll pay. / – Then 50,000 Dong per person. – 50,000. / – Is it 50,000 per person? – Per person. / – I’ll pay… You should ask for discount. Hey… – Alright. / – Do not bargain with those guys. I understand. Please ride on the back seat. (Motorcycle taxi costs $2.50 per person) (Gwanggyu feels happy about not getting a discount) (Let’s ride on Vietnamese roads) – We started. / – We’re leaving. – This is called xe om. / – Xe om. – Xe om, right? / – Yes, xe om. We started with the loud sounds of engines. Gwanggyu, where are you? He’s right behind me. In my opinion, this is useful for traffic jams. (Like this?) It’s nice to look around riding something like that. Hello. (Gwanggyu says hi shyly) (Hehe) Gwanggyu, did you like the girls? Well, yes. I like everyone. This is great. In fact, I’m scared of riding motorcycles. But this doesn’t feel dangerous at all. – You can experience what locals do. / – That’s right. – It’s fun. / – It’s great to enjoy the details. – Right. / – Suddenly, I want to go to Vietnam. Vietnam is a fun place to visit. I can’t believe I’m in this motorcycle group. – Oh, my God. / – It’s like a movie. – Good morning, Vietnam. / – If you go to Vietnam… – Usually, there are many car dealers. / – Yes. But there are more motorcycle dealers in Vietnam. Yes, there are more of them. And when the kids graduate from high school, motorcycles are considered as the best gifts. – Not cars? / – Headed for a fancy restaurant? – Are they going to spend money? / – Here we are. – What? It looks like a castle. / – It’s a fancy restaurant. – It is really luxurious. / – This looks expensive. You should go to at least one of those places. The atmosphere is classic and unique. – It feels antique. / – Antique. – That’s a nice word. / – Goodness. – Two guys at a place like this? / – Have a seat. It’s like a place for a blind date. Why did you pull out the chair for him? (They had a sweet time at the lake the night before) (Taecyeon’s seduction) Your lips look sexy. “Your lips look so sexy now.” Look at him hold his hand. “Brokeback Mountain.” (Gwanggyu fell for Taecyeon’s charm) Thank you, and you? (Heart pounding) Let’s call it a date rather than a blind date. – Okay. It’s a date. / – A date. It’s a nice word. There’s a crane sitting on the table. This makes me feel good. Look at this forsythia. Is this forsythia? It’s Vietnamese forsythia. It’s big. Would you like some wine? – What? No. / – Wine? Since we’re here in Haiphong. (Wine doesn’t suit my taste) (It’ll be okay) (You should drink wine on your date) (The house wine is about $8 per glass) (After drinking the wine..) The food is here. There are a lot of food. – This is chicken salad. / – They must be happy. – Scorched rice salad? / – On top of scorched rice… – That looks refreshing. / – That looks good. I remember the taste. Oh, it’s Vietnamese rolls! – For the last meal… / – Spring rolls! Isn’t that a familiar dish? The food is ready. – Let’s eat. / – Let’s eat. You start it first. (Wait a minute, Taecyeon…) – That’s what you ordered. / – Yours looks better. I’m afraid… They ordered different dishes. (Sniffs) No, no, no! (Not again…) This is the coriander that I hate the most. – Take it out. / – You can take that out. – Just take it out. / – Where should I put it? In the bowl on the side. – Just try… / – It’s so strong. – I really hate coriander. / – He really hates it. My friends give me their coriander to me. – You like it that much? / – Yes. – Thank goodness it was on the top. / – I know. Try it. It looks just like glass noodles now. You should like that. It’s a dish you like. (He takes a bite since it looks familiar) – Please. / – Be too strong. (He takes a bite since it looks familiar) – Is it okay? How does it taste? / – Yes. Like glass noodles. You went all the way there for glass noodles? – Try some. / – That’s enough. It contains similar ingredients to glass noodles, like carrots and noodles. – It looks just like it. / – It does taste familiar… But it reminds me pad Thai… – Pad Thai… / – What’s that? I have no idea. No idea. – There’s a noodle dish called pad Thai. / – I see. It’s a noodle dish that can contain shrimp. It’s very similar to that dish. – Anyway, I’m reminded of glass noodles. / – I see. – I will try the broth. / – Sure. If you need more coriander, feel free to take some. Is that the seafood broth from before? Is it better than the one before? Would you like to try it? Suitable for a noodle special… (Will it suit Gwanggyu’s middle-aged taste?) No? I’m not sure if he’s the right guest for Battle Trip. – Too many head shakes. / – He rejects everything. If the banh da cua I ate earlier had this aroma, I would’ve been fine with it. First off, the noodles… It’s the same noodles as banh da cua! I think mine’s better. – Same noodles. / – Same one. They seem a bit lighter. – I have to try this. / – Don’t mind me. I’m sorry. Why do you keep saying it tastes bad? Don’t mind me. He does eat well… It doesn’t have a very strong taste. To give an example, it’s like comparing regular bean paste stew to rich bean paste stew. Those who like the latter enjoy that strong smell. If you come to Vietnam looking to eat like a local, then try the stronger broth at the other place. If you’re looking for something milder, then come here. That bean paste stew comparison was spot on. I forgot about the other dishes while eating noodles. (Vietnamese spring rolls, approximately $6) In Korea, we refer to this dish as Vietnamese wraps. It’s quite well-known. As you can see, it contains fresh vegetables and shrimp. And here’s some sweet and sour sauce. – That has to be good. / – You can never go wrong. It’s hard to make a bad spring roll. Most people are familiar with the taste. They can contain a lot of coriander. – Is it alright? / – If you dip it generously, it’s good. That peanut sauce. No way… (The taste compels me to give this to you) – It must have coriander. / – There’s coriander inside. This is funny. – It had coriander. / – There’s coriander inside. It had coriander. – He became Shrek. / – There’s lot of coriander! – Of course it does. / – He should’ve taken it out. I can’t eat salads either. The taste is so strong… Gosh, it’s way too strong. Now then, shall we try the chicken salad? – We have chicken salad, too? / – Yes. Here we go. – What’s wrong? / – Is the taste strong? There’s a certain taste that keeps startling me. (He puts the chopsticks down) There he is shaking his head again. – He’s doing it again. / – Inside… This is the coriander. It kind of resembles water parsley. They use this so much in their dishes. Almost every dish contains it. Here and over there. The dish in front of you also contains it. Of course mine has it too. Then finally, perhaps the fried squid won’t have any. We just might find it wrapped with coriander inside. – Fritters seem to always suit him. / – I know. – With some chili sauce. / – Alright. (Will the fried squid betray his trust?) How does it taste? There are no problems? No space for coriander. Then please help yourself. I’ll take care of the other dishes. – Sounds like a plan. / – Sure thing. (All the coriander dishes are for Taecyeon) Taecyeon takes all the coriander. You only had glass noodles and fried squid. Just like in Korea. Just like at home. Now… Gwanggyu. – We’ve enjoyed our meal, right? / – yes. Our noodle road. Let’s give it our final evaluation. – Our final scores? / – Yes. (Gwanggyu’s final score is?) I’d say 2.5 points. – We would’ve enjoyed the food. / – That’s right. – We all enjoy coriander. / – Here’s the score. Here’s 1, 2… (Feeling nervous) And 3. Did the coriander affect the final score? Yes, coriander doesn’t suit me. People who enjoy coriander might give it a full rating. – But it doesn’t suit my taste. / – I see. The way I see it, I think it suits our guide, Taecyeon. It’s much better than the one we had for lunch. (Taecyeon’s final verdict is?) Taecyeon ate pretty well, right? 4… – 4. / – 4 points. That’s a lot. I feel like I’m observing Michelin critics. This is what I felt as I ate the salad earlier. I think I’m getting more and more used to coriander. – That happens. / – The more I try it… – It stirs my appetite. / – That looks good. Even the spring rolls… Contain a flavor that’s unique to Vietnam. Of course, the fried squid doesn’t need mentioning. – Of course, it’s good. / – The wine, too. The ambience is great. And today, this is the biggest final meal. I’m quite pleased with the final meal. – 4 points? / – Yes. But I’m glad that there was the fried squid for you. – The cha ca came 1st. / – It has the highest rating. (Young women head somewhere late at night) (A significant crowd) They’re head over heels. I thought I was shooting for another KBS program… Guerrilla Date of “Entertainment Weekly.” Fans are crowding them everywhere they go. How did you get so popular, Gwanggyu? (2PM’s Taecyeon) Lots of your fans are there too, right? Gwanggyu? Yes, of course. Occasionally, one of them reaches out to me too. Taking what you can get? (Please look this way) Who is familiar with 2PM songs? (2PM song?) (Put your hands up) (Now this is a proper chorus) (2PM has rallied all of Vietnam) That’s insane. Everyone is singing together. It’s not just one of them. Thank you, everyone. Just to let you know in advance, that never happened to us. We weren’t expecting it. We had nothing like that. (The sun has finally set on their final day in Vietnam) (It’s now time to return) Our Vietnam trip is now over. – Good night, Vietnam! / – Vietnam! – It sure is beautiful. / – It sure is. I did try my very best to introduce Vietnam’s unique locations and food through our Noodle Tour. What was it like for you? Truthfully, when we were setting off, I was worried that I won’t be able to eat any of the cuisine. But the noodles were much better than I imagined. This is also my first time in Vietnam. But should I have the chance, I’d like to return to explore deeper. I’d like to come back together. That’ll be great. – It’s great. / – The nightscape is beautiful, too. It’s gorgeous, Gwanggyu. Okay, let’s wrap up with a cheer. Let’s give our trip a proper close. – Good Morning… / – Vietnam! – That was executed well. / – Noodles! Rice noodles! They complement one another. Thank you for the hard work. Did you travel by car to Haiphong? Yes, we travelled by car. – You travelled by car? / – Yes, we did. There is a railroad but I’ve heard that foreigners could have a hard time with train travel. It can be inconvenient. There is a pickup service. If you make a reservation in advance… – You can go by car. / – How much is the price? For a party of four, it’s about $110. – $110 for 4 is cheap. / – That’s the largest expense. – It sure is. / – It trumps eating. Because the food is so affordable. Alright. To review Good Morning, Vietnam’s… Noodle Tour… Let’s rank it. What ranks 1st on the list? The cha ca pho comes 1st. – The snakehead fish is 1st. / – The beef pho was weak. The beef pho had the potential to be ranked high. But since it was our first dish, we weren’t generous with our scoring. Because it was our first meal. Let’s review the expenditure. – Taecyeon. / – Good Morning, Vietnam… How much did you spend during your two-day trip? Excluding the airfare, for each person… Per person. 1, 2, 3. – I think it’ll be a record low. / – How much? We spent $184. – $184. / – Only $184. Isn’t that the lowest cost so far? – For everything? / – Even the meal with wine… – And beer as well. / – Is transportation included? – Everything is included. / – Yes, everything. But spending money is part of vacation. – They spent too little. / – No. – They did but that’s the result. / – They spent too little. – Let’s hear the closing statement. / – Sure. Let’s begin with Taecyeon. According to statistics released by the Korean Tourism Organization, Koreans visited Vietnam the most among Southeast Asian countries. So I recommend everyone to pay a visit. These days, eating and drinking alone… – That’s the trend these days. / – Right. In an England guide book last year… They ranked Vietnam no. 1 for travelling alone. Give Vietnam a try. Have a new experience and travel through Vietnam to sample all their noodle dishes. This was Battle Trip’s second Foodie Special. Team Good Morning, Vietnam. Would you follow their itinerary to Vietnam? Please vote! Right now. (They planned a trip for Noodle Tour in Vietnam) (What will the judges choose?) What will the judges choose? Okay… – Good Morning, Vietnam. / – Last digit first? Last digit. – 2! 82? / – This means the first digit can be high. – 72? / – This is 52. – 62? / – 62! – 52! / – 22? – 52? / – 12? 5! 5! – Goodness. / – Gosh. – That’s so many. / – Hey, come on.

I wish that Taecyeon went to Vietnam with Park Shin Hye though. If I have to choose, I'd pick pho over udon, but will visit Shikoku, Japan over Hanoi, Vietnam.

Vietnamese cuisine is different from other places, if you want to enjoy it, go with Vietnamese people, you will have a lots nice experience….Thanks to Taecyeon for loving these dishes, I think if you have chance to come back Vietnam, you will love Vietnamese cuisine more…thanks for coming to Vietnam and help us advertise our country.

Gwanggyu just can eat Korean food. He can not enjoy other countries' food. He is unable to be a judge. Better other persons join the show.

thank you KBS WORLD TV for showing VIETNAM the best that she is good morning Viet Nam greeting from CA

Its okay.. as long i can see taecyeon face 😆

Miky M · September 7, 2017 at 2:40 am

While the constant refusual might be quite annoying i actually liked the pair,i laughed way too much actually…It also gave a bit of perspective from both sides,a person who is a great eater,not picky and that can eat spices and so and a picky one who can't eat spicies or some stuff like KwangKyu who said from the beggining he can't eat spicey stuff or coriander,one might travel with a family member or friend like that…I think their major error was to omit telling the waiter that if it has coriander to take it out,i think it would have been more enjoyable for him and people like him…

Minh Nguyễn · September 7, 2017 at 11:23 pm

Hai Phong is my country !!!

gacha spring · September 9, 2017 at 5:08 pm

Nothing wrong with disliking coriander/parsley. My sister loves it, but it taste like soap to me.

Just go to Saigon next time.

I was so excited to watch this bcoz Taecyeon was in this episode but too bad his partner is too picky its a no no

Erik Emerölduson · January 27, 2018 at 11:38 pm

What kind of Vietnamese person COVERS the surface with just vergetables (I'm of Vietnamese descent and I've been to Vietnam, so this is extremely unusual)!?

MsTomatoGuru · February 4, 2018 at 7:05 pm

The older guy was really annoying throughout the trip. Not just about the food, but pretty much everything in general like sightseeing and the discount for motorbike taxi

Alfianita Virgizky Oeza · February 11, 2018 at 7:38 am

Yirou Voon · March 29, 2018 at 2:17 pm

Taecyeon did such a great job in food description and also serving his picky eater sunbae kwang kyu. Good manner on top of good looking

X · June 24, 2018 at 9:33 am

As a picky eater, I wouldn’t mind Gwanggyu disliking various dishes because of course, everyone’s taste buds are different. I’m glad he enjoyed some of the dishes. As old as he is, he did try to keep an open mind 😂😂😂I also noticed that he stopped Taecyeon from bargaining the price of the motorbike guys. I’m guessing he knows those guys are poor and they’re doing this for a living, besides it’s pretty cheap so he doesn’t want to bargain. One of the hosts said something about him going through a hardship so I imagine he experienced something similar to those guys.

Jay-R Reyes · July 7, 2018 at 12:53 pm

Damn if I went on vacation and I wanted to eat noodles for a good price this would be great
I feel like every-time I watch battle trip and they eat something I’m always starving

Thuy Le · September 8, 2018 at 12:31 pm

Ah, the contrast b/w the two is just so funny. Taecyeon acted like the mature one, while Gwanggyu acted like a picky child 🤣.
It feels good to see Taeyeon eat well (even though I don't know much about 2PM). He gives off a gentle and friendly demeanor.
On the other hand, a lot of people dislike Gwanggyu b/c he is so picky. However, I think the fact that some vietnamese food was enjoyed by some one as picky as him should prove how good the food is.

yoddalgi • wannaone · September 26, 2018 at 6:19 pm

For everyone's good it's better not to invite picky eaters to this kind of show. I mean I'm a picky eater myself and it frustrated me too most of the time. If I'm the PD I definitely won't invite me 😂

Vi Tran · November 2, 2018 at 8:23 pm

Gwanggyu either didn't like the food or he compared it with korean food like "the noodle soup tastes like korean fish cake soup". Once you join a food show, you should not be so picky on food especially foreign countries food. That is disrepecting and viewers would think Vietnamese food is not good because of you. Please don't ever invite this guy to any food show.

I am open minded though I am a picky eater myself. I enjoys seeing someone who enjoys food while sometimes I don’t. So I like how they are team up bc this will be me and my mom in reality. We basically have diff taste but still enjoy it after all.
