Or, to those less fluent in Korean, Hello!

Welcome to the second March 2020 edition of the Atlantis Entertainment newsletter where you'll find a mixture of K-Pop and books. I am your MC, Ji Soo, and I will be guiding you through this month's fun.

JI SOO'S UPDATE

I wanted to check in and make sure everyone is OK as the world seems to be descending into madness around us. I know a lot of people are stuck at home (either because their kids can't go to school, work are saying to stay home, self-isolation, or even lock-down). I'm still working while I can - the hospitality industry is going to take a hard hit! I'm also far away from my parents and won't be able to get back to them. They're OK right now, but it's hard when they're not close.

 

But I know I'm not the only one like this, and I'm definitely not the only one going through this. If anyone is feeling a little lost or scared, please feel free to post in my FB group. We'll do what we can!

 

Just remember, try to be alert not anxious. Simple precautions like washing hands and covering your mouth when you cough (and washing your hands afterwards) will help. Also, bars of soap are just as effective as liquid soap and will be more gentle on your hands!

 

HAPPY WHITE DAY

White Day is a popular day in a lot of East Asian countries. It follows on from Valentines' Day and takes place exactly a month later.

 

Traditionally, women buy men chocolate or candy on Valentines' Day. On White Day, it's time for men to reciprocate (usually with white chocolate, hence the name).

 

This year, I (and thousands of other Monbebes), got the best White Day present. You may recall that at the end of last year I was devastated because Wonho had to leave Monsta X following allegations of drug use and a questionable past. On March 14 Starship Entertainment (his company) announced that the police investigation had been completed and Wonho was, as we all knew, found innocent. How do I know this was our White Day gift? He was cleared March 10.

 

I'm not sure if this will mean Wonho is coming back to Monsta X.

 

But I'm still hoping!

KIMCHI FRIED RICE

Do you still have the Kimchi recipe I shared a while ago?

 

Today, let's make Kimchi fried rice. Because, if everyone around you is panicking and stocking up on pasta, rice can be eaten with everything. And unless you're Korean, you're not hoarding the kimchi. (Side note: China and Korea didn't hoard food or toilet paper...)

 

This should serve four people and only take about 20 minutes to make (provided you've already got you kimchi).

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup kimchi (either your handmade or store bought)
  • 1/2 yellow onion - or if you're English, as I've discovered, 1/2 onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic (crushed)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (Dark or light - it's up to your preference. However, we used citrus soy sauce which is a family thing, not a standard recipe thing - but it does lighten the flavor nicely)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (again, this is a taste preference - oil can also be used)
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced beef or chicken
  • 3 cups rice (cooked)
  • Salt
  • 4 fried eggs (cook these last - they go on top)

 

Step One

In a lightly oiled pan, sauté the kimchi and onions over a medium heat.

 

Step Two

Add the garlic, soy sauce, and 1/2 of the butter to your vegetables and sauté for another 2 to 3 minutes before adding the meat.

 

Step Three

Once the meat has cooked, turn off the heat, but leave the pan on the burner. Add in the cooked rice and the rest of the butter. Stir in well.

 

Step Four

Place in a bowl, add salt to taste, and top with a fried egg. (Personally, I love a runny yolk!)

 

Step Five

Enjoy!

Crimson Eyes

Seila has been slaying demons for as long as she can remember.

A Phantom, she travels the length and breadth of England in a quest to reclaim her humanity—and her soul. With her Sieken Blade, she cuts down the demons in her path while inching closer to freedom from the endless hunt.

When an Elite Demon makes sport of London’s Kouzlo—a secret organisation of supernaturals dedicated to ridding the Earth of demons and sealing the portals they slink through—its leader, an Enchantress called Fallow, implores Seila to join their cause before they’re wiped out.

Although the Phantom wields formidable skills, working as part of a team is not in her DNA.

Thrown in with siblings Amber and Damon, fledgling half-Fire Elementals with limited control of their powers, Tej, a reckless human with a penchant for crossbows, and a host of other powerful Kouzlo, can Seila and her new allies keep it together long enough to save London?

However, falling in love quickly brings up old memories and flashbacks from a time Tess had long ago tried to forget.
