One of our drum majors looks like Gordon Ramsay, so it’s been a running joke in my section to always say “Yes, Chef!” whenever they instruct us to do something. One time we were practicing our formations and my section has to go from a straight line to a spiral. It was sloppy and the drum major yelled out “I can make a better spiral than that in my sleep, this is pathetic!” in a replica of Gordon Ramsay’s accent. Everyone laughed for over a minute, even the band directors laughed. I freaking love our drum majors.

★ The RFA, V, and Saeran’s reactions to MC being really great chef ★


  • “AHHH! MC! Come watch TV with me! They’re marathoning my favorite show!”
  • “Oooh, what show is it?”
  • “It’s called Be A Whisk Taker and all the contestants have to bake the craziest cakes!”
  • MC nods, sitting down with their boyfriend
  • “You’ll love the judge! Coincidentally, their name is MC too!”
  • “Yoosung, you’re so dumb”
  • “Wait WHAT T_T???”
  • “Ye, that’s me”
  • “Whaaaat, why did you end it?!”
  • You had to stop production for the show because you wanted to go back to school
  • Do not worry small boi
  • MC has plans for another show
  • College Student Cooking™
  • Inspired by the boyfriend himself
  • For kids that can just make good food from crap materials
  • Yoosung totally asks MC to cook for him all the time


  • You’re shocked because he only has beer in his fridge
  • How do you live???
  • That’s it, we’re going to the grocery store
  • “Babe, I don’t have any money”
  • “Yeah that’s fine. I’ll pay. We gotta get the best ingredients”
  • He’s protesting, but you’re ignoring him
  • You have a cooking show on YouTube
    • It’s called Gotta Do the Cooking by the Book
  • Like Rosanna Pansino, but meals
  • Sometimes you let him come onto the show, but ya’ll get nothing done because there’s always food flying through the air
  • He’ll lick the food off you
  • Especially loves when you do livestreams because he’ll just bother you while throwing all the ingredients together
  • When things are in the oven, you and him will sit on the couch and just talk to the viewers
  • So calming


  • You own a cafe: Coffee: A State of Bean
  • A lot of well known/famous people flock to the small bistro
  • All of the coffee and pastries and snacks are made by you
  • As you know of Jaehee’s coffee dreams, you offer her a job at your place
  • (You don’t want to just give it to her per say; you know she wants to work for it herself)
  • Declines at first, but accepts because you tell her some tips and brewing secrets
  • Almost doesn’t want to leave
  • Buuuut, she also wants to cater to not the rich/famous people
  • Your cafe is really upscale actually
  • Since Jaehee is no longer working under Jumin, she starts researching all about coffee and the like
  • She finds you own a shop and comes to surprise you
  • Even tho she doesn’t look half as fancy as the other patrons
  • Don’t worry Baehee
  • You’re the cutest one here
  • You kiss her each time she comes in
  • Ppl awe each time


  • When you’re staying at his penthouse (Day 8 Status), you’re really panicking because you have an interview in the afternoon
  • “Jumin…I need to leave for a couple hours. I promise I’ll come back” you plead
  • “What? No. I can’t let that happen. I’m sorry. Here, the chef can cook us a nice meal.”
  • “No. I really need to go! It’s important!”
  • “What if they came here?” he tries to reason
  • Really reluctant
  • Only lets you go because he’s going too
  • “MC, where are we going that’s so important”
  • “To this thing for my cook book” you say nonchalantly
  • What? MC cooks?
  • He never cooks, so why should he know
  • You arrive at the building and ya’ll are bombarded with the paparazzi
  • He tries to shield you bc he thinks there could be a scandal or something
  • There’s murmurs throughout the crowd like “What’s Jumin Han doing here?” “Is he sponsoring MC?”
  • Lol no
  • Lets the chef have a lot of days off with pay


  • Already knew
  • That damn background check
  • You wanted to surprise him
  • He tries to mix HBC into everything
  • Tastes like shit tbh
  • Saeran’s the official judge
  • Always picks your cooking duh
  • Saeyoung’s a butt and a sore loser so he’ll switch your plates last minute
  • >:(
  • When this happens, you don’t cook for him for a week
  • Stuck eating his chips
  • Doesn’t really bother him tho

  • You make really elaborate cakes
  • They’re really beautiufl
  • Sometimes you gat sad becayse V can’t see their prettiness
  • Totally misjudged the height of oe and smashed his hand right on it
  • Ya’ll were both cryin’


  • Only ONLY eats your cooking
  • No one else’s
  • Saeran why
  • Will even eat your cooking when you’re in a bad mood
    • God knows your cooking could kill a man
    • you know all the indigestion/stomach ache/etc recipes
  • You have to pack lunches for you two when you go out together
  • Pesters you to make ice cream for him
  • You refuse
  • “If you’re gonna make me cook for you 24/7, you should make the ice cream 24/7”
  • legit didn’t talk to you for 12 hrs
  • too busy trying to make ice cream


It was so full of flavor because of her upbringing, the poverty that she came from. The preserving technique that made everything taste richer, deeper. The fresh chicken that she hand picked. Drying the bird, which gives you the perfect skin. The salting because she never trusted refrigerators, the two or three day’s worth of meals that she would create from one chicken because being poor makes you inventive.

Advice to First-time Line-cooks:
  • Expect to learn a lot. Whether it’s how to do something, or how not to do it. Every person you meet knows something you don’t. 
  • Have low exception, and be completely amazed. 
  • You will work when others play. When others work (or sleep), so you shall play. 
  • Be clean, be organized, be safe.
  • “Yes, Chef.” “What’s next?” “Behind you.” “Sharp.” etc.
  • Don’t complain.
  • Hard work pays off.
  • Always have a sani-bucket at your station.
  • Have a side towel ready. Hide three more.
  • Always, always, ALWAYS ask permission to use someone’s knife.
  • Familiarize yourself with your station.
  • Start learning the next station.
  • Never loose your cool on the line.
  • Go yell in the walk-in if you must.
  • Invest in good shoes: Mozos for flat feet and Danskos for arched feet.
  • Then go out and buy insoles. And Aleve.
  • 2 black click-y pens, 1 black click-y Sharpie, 1 small notebook.
  • Keep an extra pair of pants and a backup coat in your bag.
  • Bring street clothes to change into after shift when the crew goes out for beers.
  • Beers after a shift are important bonding ritual. It makes the crew stronger. 
  • It’s polite to buy at least one round.
  • But don’t go overboard. You gotta work Brunch tomorrow. 
  • Shut the fuck up and cook.
