2014-11-26: I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving. May
we all enjoy and be very thankful for our food.
2014-11-11: On this Veterans Day, I take a moment to
thank all of our wonderful service members, past and present, who have sacrificed, and continue to give their all, for our
wonderful country. I'll always love my native land of South Korea so very much. Still, the day I became an American
citizen was a most happy one for me, because of them--they made that possible. God bless our troops around the world for
protecting our freedom. It is my honor, privilege, and duty to serve them. I give them my best, every day, which
is the very least I can do. I thank you ...
2014-10-25: I have always loved competition, and in Fast Food,
my day-to-day job, there's plenty of it. It's the same in Major League Eating. That's why I love them both.
I added a photo of some of my trophies earned over the last 11 years, as a competitive eater -- see my FAQ page. Each year it gets more difficult to finish in the top three in any given competition, let alone win.
As long as I have fun and remain healthy, I'll continue to compete, but at fewer events.
