Why was Baek Jong-won so angry that he hit the table? It was a scene that caused a lot of controversy after the trailer was released.
2 weeks ago SBS After the first episode of ‘Hannam Seokbadae Alley’ aired, the owner of the Chuncheon-style Dakgalbi restaurant, whose management was behind the scenes, received a lot of criticism. Then, a lot of comments from acquaintances who defended the son of a Chuncheon-style chicken ribs restaurant appeared on the Internet. Some viewers who saw this He also expressed his doubts about this “Isn’t it the devil’s editing?” It’s been like three and a half years The authenticity of the situation could be questioned. In a crisis that could shake its roots, the production team adhered to the existing editorial direction. And the reason it had no choice but to do so was revealed through the broadcast on the 28th.
After completing the first solution at the chicken ribs restaurant, Baek Jong-won, satisfied with the cleanliness, finally started tasting. His face, eating chicken ribs without a word, seemed unimpressed.
“I’m not impressed, I’m impressed. The taste is so plain. It’s like I just made it at home.”
It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t particularly delicious. The son’s boss regretted that the reaction was different from the expected reaction. Baek Jong-won evaluated that the flavor of the seasoning was bland, but the curry flavor was strong, adding that it was necessary to develop a sauce for this store. After that, the kitchen was inspected. Baek Jong-won looked at the completely changed kitchen and said, “Why haven’t you been able to become so neat (in the meantime)?”
Some people complain that Baek Jong-won not only advises restaurant business owners, but also takes charge of human remodeling. However, the reason why he focuses on solution not only on cleanliness, food and sales attitude, but also on the way he treats customers and his life is simple. It is because the taste of food can be upgraded, but it is difficult to cook because there is no separate recipe for the boss. The reason Baek Jong-won even serves as a decoration is because he knows experientially that even if he only tells the recipe for the food, it will collapse in no time.
Moreover, the biggest problem of the Chuncheon-style dakgalbi restaurant was the lack of communication between the mother and child. Baek Jong-won suggested that the most important thing in a restaurant is communication between the hall and the kitchen. This is a solution that was introduced once through a mother and daughter boss at a grandmother’s noodle restaurant in Pyeongtaek. The son’s boss pretended to be confident, saying, “It will be very fun,” but in reality, he was foolish because he didn’t know where and what was in the kitchen.
The actual practice began with the production crew as guests. The son’s boss relied on persimmons instead of measuring, and he sent out a lot more chicken ribs than his mother’s boss did. I also failed to control the amount of sauce and made the mistake of omitting rice cakes. It was the same as experiencing difficulties as I tried to serve and respond to which my mother’s boss did not. Baek Jong-won explained that through the practice of the day, both of them “should have known deeply” about the reality.
Baek Jong-won, who once again visited the Chuncheon-style dakgalbi restaurant, pointed out the inexperienced knife quality of his son’s boss and demanded improvement. Also, I returned after giving the task of researching the sauce to be a unique feature of this store. And on the next day of filming, the production team held an emergency meeting. The production team, who sat across from Baek Jong-won, explained the situation, saying that there was something they learned while editing. Baek Jong-won’s expression darkened rapidly when he saw the video.
On the night when all shop inspections were over, the production team withdrew, leaving only a handful of equipment to record the cleaning process. Not long after the cleaning started, the son’s acquaintances came to visit. After a while, the son’s boss turned off the lights and went out with his friends. Afterwards, the mother and the boss returned to the store with the second son and waited patiently, but the son’s boss, who went to play, did not return. Mother’s complaints and complaints continued.
“The camera is running right now, so I’m only cleaning what’s in front of the camera.”
The next morning, the family gathered for cleaning. Friends also came. They made sure that the camera was working, thinking that the audio wouldn’t be recorded, and brought out their ‘hearts’. My son pretended to clean only where the camera was visible. When an acquaintance said, “You don’t have to wipe these things anyway,” and that remodeling will make them dirty again, the son calmly replied, “I’m only cleaning the front of the camera.” It was a kind of ‘show’ for broadcasting. About the scene in front of his mother and Baek Jong-won in last week’s broadcast, he made a shocking confession to his acquaintances, “I shed tears because I was sad for broadcasting.”
The production team, who checked the film, urgently visited the chicken ribs restaurant. And he asked his son for an explanation. He said, “I did it because I was afraid that the people around me would make fun of me,” but when asked, “What do you want to do?”, he replied, “There is nothing” and “It just flows.” “I am the bad guy,” he added.
“I feel like I’m about to quit the program right now. Whether I write it here or not, it’s acting or something, that.”

Baek Jong-won, who met his son’s boss again, brought up a long story. He explained why he spends a lot of time doing it, even when people around him say that he is doing something worthwhile. It was because of the belief that he could contribute to the entire restaurant industry by meeting with the restaurant business owners. However, when I listened to the production team, I expressed a sense of self-confidence, saying, “I have been deceived by a certain boss during this time.”
Immediately after the first filming, Baek Jong-won said, “When my son’s boss showed his reflection, ‘These days, my friends immediately admit what they did wrong and change it’, but I never dreamed it would be like this.” Also, “In the meantime It makes me feel really dirty to think that among the bosses who appeared on TV show, the bosses who went bankrupt or closed their doors might have tried to take advantage of us rather than lack of competence.”
“It happened because I knew it by now. I wouldn’t have lived like that for the rest of my life if I didn’t know. I didn’t know that one action of mine would harm so many people.”
It’s unfortunate. It was obviously his son’s fault. There must have been a desire to ‘pretend’ to his acquaintances, but his words and actions were certainly suspicious of his sincerity. There was a lack of urgency. Rather, the presence of acquaintances blocked the son’s eyes and ears. Baek Jong-won left the store to talk to him when he made up his mind. The son who was left alone shed tears of reflection. Maybe I should have learned it properly from this job.
The process revealed in the episode aired on the 28th may once again spark controversy about ‘human transformation’. In addition, there is a possibility that it will lead to the theory of responsibility of the production team, such as “Should we help even those who lack urgency?” However, the audience rating was 4.8% (Nielsen Korea nationwide), up 0.7%p from last week. Criticism of trying to attract attention through a villain (villain) will also be raised. sure I think there is a need to rearrange it, but I don’t think it’s necessary to call it ‘human transformation’.
As I said before, if a restaurant is to change, it is impossible to just teach the recipe. Ultimately, the owner of the store has to change. Baek Jong-won’s solution is more like ‘hunsu’ given by a senior in life who has a deep understanding of restaurant management rather than ‘crossing the line’. Using Baek Jong-won’s anger as a publicity campaign is inevitable. ‘Hahahoho’ You can’t change restaurants with a smile.
How much can the owner of the son of a Chuncheon-style dakgalbi restaurant realize and change? It’s still interesting to watch that change. Because, after all, we start from our shortcomings, learn from our mistakes, and grow from acknowledging our mistakes. The appearance of the son of the Chuncheon-style chicken ribs restaurant is not much different from ours. I hope he has the courage to repent. I want to find hope there.
