World famous R&B singer Rihanna is currently in Korea for the first time since her debut and was recently interviewed. When asked what her favorite Korean food was, she responded, “Bean paste soup.”
On February 10th, Rihanna was on MBC FM’s ‘Successful Music Camp.’ On the show she also said, “I like Korean food like bulgogi (marinated barbecued beef).”
In addition to her radio show appearance, Rihanna held a press conference on the 11th for her new album ‘Rated R.’ She said, “Among all the albums I’ve made until now, this one is the most bare and faithful.”
It’s refreshing to see American pop stars in Korea. On another note, it’s amazing that Rihanna actually likes the bean paste soup, most Americans I know hate the smell – but little do they know it’s delicious.
