Ex-idol singer knows the way to Americans’ hearts is through their stomachs
The newspaper said that Lee and her business partner Cody Taylor have created, “A ridiculously good smoked-pork sandwich flavored with Lee’s gochujang (red pepper paste) marinade, topped with kimchi slaw and served on potato buns.”
The two work together at the Heirloom Market BBQ restaurant in Sandy Springs, a posh area of Atlanta, where their foot hits the spot not only for Korean residents but all BBQ-loving Southerners. The restaurant has been run by Lee since 2010.
Lee made her debut in the Korean music industry in 1987, when she was a high school student, with the encouragement of singer You Hyun-sang from the rock band Baekdoosan. She rose to fame with such hits as “I Don’t Know What Love Is” and “Sad Farewell.” In the 1990s, the entertainer immigrated to the United States, and in 2007, she enrolled in the famed French cooking school, Le Cordon Bleu, where she began pursuing a career in cooking.
