In a cooking battle between celebrities, Stars’ Top Recipe at Fun-Staurant features original dishes from our favorite Korean stars from the time of their conception to the actual cooking. The reality show program aims to help local farmers sell produce by featuring the winning dishes and selling them in local convenience stores. Sustainable and fun!
At the end of the day, it’s a competition and it just shows how competitive and talented some of these well-known actors are. Suprising how many times the show surprises us with hidden talents – who knew Yoo Eun-Hye could cook like a chef? Want to know who our favorite contestants are?
JUNG IL-WOO: THE TRENDSETTER
It’s thanks to Jung Il-Woo that the show was later put in the reality show map. As one of the first contestants of the show, Il-Woo actually discovered Dalgona coffee in one of his trips for Macau for the show. That episode kickstarted the Dalgona trend last summer at the height of the COVID lockdown. Definitely one of the household favorites, we all wish he could make a comeback to the Fun-staurant stage.

LEE YU-RI: THE BULK QUEEN
Best known for buying and cooking in bulk, Yu-Ri’s eccentricity and let’s be honest, cuteness is what makes her one of our favorites! Her alter-ego Lee Yo-Ri (a pun for her name as the word yo ri means cooking) is revealed when she’s shown with a mole on her left cheek. Because of her entertaining, often really funny antics while cooking or looking for ingredients, it’s no surprise that many were excited when she made her comeback after her drama Lie After Lie had ended. Catch her singing to red bell peppers in one of the episodes, it’s a concert you wouldn’t want to miss!
