Hey guys, it’s Ang :) I decided to do another follow forever because it’s already this blog’s 1 year anniversary! In some ways, it’s hard to believe it has only been a year. I originally started this blog as a way to see some BTS content from time to time without flooding my dashboard. Before I knew it, summer came along, I had learned how to use Photoshop, and I found myself awake at bizarre times giffing videos of 7 boys and questioning my life decisions 😂 😭
I have made some amazing friends through this blog and am so thankful for all the wonderful people that have entered my life this past year. To all my followers, mutuals, and everyone who has sent me a message or played an ask game with me (lmao), I want to thank each and every one of you for making my experience here on this site such a great one. I’m still in awe over how many of you find this blog follow worthy 😳. Though the school year makes it much harder to be as active as I once was, I still look forward to coming on everyday and making content when I get the chance and that’s all thanks to you! 💕 I hope I continue to grow alongside this blog and meet many more people in the future 🤗 And of course I now want to give a lil shout out to the amazing blogs that I follow. Everyone should go check them out because they are all wonderful people and beautiful content creators. Without further adieu, let’s get into it~
really stoked to see this book that i’ve been working on for a couple of years finally come out - shot on location in nyc, la, chicago, atlanta and south korea between 2014-2015.
This is not your average soft-focus “journey to Asia” kind of cookbook. Koreatown is a spicy, funky, flavor-packed love affair with the grit and charm of Korean cooking in America. Koreatowns around the country are synonymous with mealtime feasts and late-night chef hangouts, and Deuki Hong and Matt Rodbard show us why with stories, interviews, and over 100 delicious, super-approachable recipes.
Korean chives or ‘buchu’ in Korean are one of my favorite vegetables in the spring time. They are kind of between the European chives and the spring onions in flavor, full of peppery lively aroma with mildly sweet after taste. This simple salad is perfect to accompany any meals to awaken your palate. You can get Korean chives in most Korean and Chinese grocery stores. You can also make delicious and easy pancakes with these chives, which is coming up soon here at Banchan tumblr!
i desperately want some authentic korean cuisine. need some samgyupsal and a table grill and scissors to cut that shit up and all those amazing banchan in lil bowls and the fckin perfect ssamjang ok, and to make the lettuce wraps with a bit of rice and hot kimchi and shove them down my face hole and cry bc they are the greatest thing ever

“Hey, hey y/n, hey,”
your boyfriend Mingyu and you were studying at your house after school when
Mingyu started to call for you attention. You quickly finished the math problem
you were working on before putting your pencil down and staring at him.
“What?” Mingyu pouted
at your flat response but the look was quickly wiped away when he grinned. You
raised your eyebrows confusedly at him.
“Y/n, feel my shirt,”
“What? Why would I-“
“Just do it.” You
sighed dramatically and felt his shirt,
“What material is it
made out of?” He asked whilst smirking. You furrowed your eyebrows and thought
for a second.
“Cotton?” You answered
hesitantly, not knowing where this was going.
material!” Mingyu laughed hysterically as you rolled your eyes. “Aw, c’mon y/n,
you have to admit that was pretty good,” he exclaimed as he nudged you on the
“I guess it was cute,
still lame though,” you teased, sticking your tongue out at him. Mingyu scoffed
and held a hand to his chest, looking offended. You laughed at his reaction and
got back to your wonderful maths problems.
“Do you need help?”
Mingyu suddenly asked, startling you.
“No, I’m okay,” you
replied, Mingyu pouted in response and you laughed a little. “Thanks though,”
you gave him a small kiss on the cheek and he smiled as bright as the sun,
making you break out into an even bigger smile.
“Hey y/n, hey,”
“Do you have a map?”
“No, why would I ha-“
“Because I’m getting
lost in your eyes.” You closed your eyes and sighed, but you couldn’t help but
smile at his dorkiness before getting back to work.
“Hey y/n,” you looked
up at Mingyu who was staring at you with his face in his palms, elbows resting
on the table.
“You may fall from the
sky, you may fall from a tree,”
“Why would I even be
in the tree in the first pl-“
“But the best way to
fall, is in love with me,” Mingyu smiled, you couldn’t help but laugh at this
“Hey, this one even
rhymed, I guess you are a true rapper.”
“You didn’t think I
was a real rapper before?” Mingyu asked, the hurt evident in his eyes,
“No Mingyu it’s not
like that! You’ve always been a real rapper to me,” you furrowed your brows at
his abnormal behaviour. Where did your over-confident boyfriend go?
“You okay?” Moving
yourself so that you were next to him, you cupped his face so that he had to
look at you.
“It’s nothing, don’t
worry, it’s really stupid,” he mumbled, looking away from you.
“Hey! Kim Mingyu, if
it’s bothering you then it’s not stupid,” he looked up at you and smiled
softly, “Tell me what’s wrong,” Mingyu sighed and held both your hands.
“I was just- I didn’t
think I was good enough for you, like, you’re amazing in every way, and I don’t
know if I’m boyfriend materi -“ you chuckled and shut him up by kissing him.
You could feel the shock by the way he didn’t react at first, but he started to
kiss you back and you could feel yourself smile in the middle of your kiss.
“Mingyu, you are enough,
you will always be enough. Did you forget that I’m dating you? Of course I
think you’re boyfriend material,” you laughed, “I chose you, and even if the
most dashing, charming and amazing guy starts talking to me, you’ll always be
the only person I see, the only person that I love. I love you Kim Mingyu,” you
looked into his shining eyes and smiled. Mingyu broke into his trademark grin,
“Woah that rhymed.
Guess who the new member of the hip hop unit is, Mingyu’s fabulous girlfriend:

A/N: Hey guys! To make up for me not updating in ages, I’m uploading another scenario !!! I quite like this one, and i hope you do too! ~Admin BanChan
“Minghao, you’re on duty today!” The boy in front of you
nodded quietly as your homeroom teacher dismissed your class for the day.
Minghao was the new exchange student, it was the middle of the year so he had
settled in quite well, especially with the boy that sat next to him, Mingyu. Ever
since he arrived on the first day of school, you had only ever spoken to him
twice, once when he passed you a sheet in maths, and when you were both playing
‘get to know each other’ activities during the first week of school and had
introduced yourselves to each other. Your class had duty rotations every Friday
where someone would have to stay back after-school and help clean the
classroom. Minghao got to skip out on his first turn as he was still settling
in. You had volunteered to help clean in place of him and he had given you a
smile which made your heart beat faster than it should have.
Ever since then you had exchanged small greetings and smiles
and you would sometimes find yourself staring at the back of his head during
class. You would catch yourself before you started dozing off and daydreaming
about him in class though.
The class left and you found yourself sitting in the
classroom by yourself, excluding Minghao and Mingyu whom were chatting by the
door. You started to pack up your books and stationary into your backpack,
unintentionally listening to Minghao and Mingyu’s conversation.
“Do you want me to stay back and help you?” You heard Mingyu
ask, leaning against the doorframe.
“Okay first of all: no it’s fine, I know you have last
minute homework to do, especially with the big history project due tomorrow.”
Mingyu chuckled at his comment but let the other boy continue,
“Second of all: are you going to a photoshoot because you’re
always posing like that.”
“What? I wasn’t posing, pft, what are you talking about?”
Minghao laughed as Mingyu quickly repositioned himself. “I’m off then!” You
looked up to see Mingyu leaving and Minghao walking over to the cupboard at the
front of the room to get the cleaning supplies. You stood up with your
backpack, readying yourself to leave before you suddenly put it down and walked
over to Minghao who was staring at you wide-eyed.
“Hey y/n,” he smiled at you, “are you staying after-school
“No, I was wondering if you needed help, I know that when I
clean the classroom is usually takes me until 5 o’clock until I can leave, and
since this is your first time doing this it might be even more time consuming
for you- basically I want to help you.” You cut your speech short when you
noticed you were babbling and embarrassedly looked Minghao in the eye. He
stared at you which only made you more embarrassed that you started playing
with your fingers. You were about to leave, taking his silence as a no to your offer,
when he suddenly spoke up.
“Thank you, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to, I
don’t want to burden you or anything, and I’m sure that you have friends to be
with or, maybe even a boyfriend…” Your eyes widened at his statement, the guy
you had a small crush on thought you had a boyfriend?
“N-no, I want to
help you; and I don’t have a boyfriend.” You whispered the last part of the
sentence, blushing furiously. Minghao, too, turned red and gave you a shy
“Then let’s get started!” He exclaimed brightly, you nodded
in response and took the broom from his hands, your fingers brushing briefly.
You both cleaned the classroom, glancing at each other
discreetly and having loud conversations which resulted in teachers having to
come down from the staff room and shush you two. You both decided to clean next
to each other, to avoid having to shout to each other; causing your arms to
touch every few seconds due to the close proximity of you two. You both
finished cleaning the classroom in record time, and Minghao even learned a few
tips and tricks from you on how to clean the floors. You both learnt a lot
about each other, and by the time the classroom was cleaned, it was as if you
had known each other for years.
“Yeah?” you turned towards Minghao who was packing his own
bag as he didn’t have the time to do it before,
“Do you, I don’t know, want to hang out tomorrow?” He rubbed
the back of his neck, looking at his feet, unsure of your response. You laughed
at his cuteness which caused him to look up at you.
“Of course, I’d love to ‘hang out’ with you tomorrow,” you
answered, making sure to emphasise the words ‘hang out’.
“What? Why’d you make the words ‘hang out’ sound weird?” You
grinned at him and nudged your shoulder with his, Minghao laughed as he got the
idea, “Okay sure, it’s a date,” you smiled and Minghao gave you a smile in
return which could challenge even the brightness of the sun.
“Okay.” You smiled again, your cheeks were starting to hurt
from all the smiling.
Could today get any better?
Minghao grinned and slowly interlaced his fingers with
