2PM’s Taecyeon Feels Confident Cooking Rice After ‘Three Meals’
Practicing his cooking skills, 2PM’s Taecyeon showed confidence in cooking rice in cauldrons after tvN’s Three Meals.
On October 15, Taecyeon attended the press conference for Three Meals at the 63 City Convention Center in Yeouido.
During the press conference, Lee Seo Jin shared that he was in charge of prepping the ingredients and Taecyeon did most of the cooking out of the big iron cauldron. He added that Taecyeon is studying cooking like his life depends on it.
When asked if he learned more about cooking, Taecyeon replied, “I didn’t learn anything particularly new. I’m cooking as I always do. We filmed once or twice, but we always cook rice with the cauldron.”
After saying that the cauldron is too heavy, Taecyeon asked the staff if they could buy him a set of pots, bringing laughter in the hall.
“I’ve gotten really good about cooking rice in the cauldron. It’s all about adjusting the water and fire levels,” explained Taecyeon, going into detail how much water is needed and when to lower the heat in the fire pit. “
MC Park Ji Yoon then commented in amazement that she never dreamed of learning how to cook rice in a cauldron from an idol group member.
Three Meals is a program about Lee Seo Jin and Taecyeon learning to cook for themselves while living in the middle of the countryside. The program begins on October 17.
