Baek Jong Won’s live cooking show The Paikfather will close its curtains in eight months since running. The chef himself mentioned the end of the season in an episode of MBC’s The Paikfather: Don’t Stop Cooking! aired live on the afternoon of the 30th.
Baek Jong Won mentioned that he will be taking a rest after airing until the end of February. He said that there are about four more episodes left till the end of the season.
He mentioned a new plan for the future season saying, “Being on a live show is very difficult. I’m going to replenish my energy and come back with new menus.”
First aired in June last year, The Paikfather drew attention as a live cooking show which allowed viewers to communicate with those in the show, and vice versa.
As a project to help out beginners who do not know about cooking, the live show challenges wonderful recipes only with easy cooking tools and ultra-simple ingredients that everyone has back at home. The show essentially gave a new meaning to the 5 p.m. KST on a Saturday with its revolutionary contents.
