Bibimbap Backpackers, a group of five passionate people, introduce and promote Bibimbap to the world. Last year, 2011, they have travelled to 20 different countries for 9 months and served more than 10,000 people across the globe under the project name “100th Korean Table.” During the 2011 project, we have seen the potential of Bibimbap and Korean food as a well-being diet food. In 2012, they are continuing their mission to promote Bibimbap and Korean culture in the United States and England. The reason why Bibimbap Backpackers decide to go around the world is to let the world know about the greatness of Korean food and help the world to understand culture. In this round, they are planning to hold tasting events to people who are trend makers and acknowledge or accept new culture without burden.
