This music video by South Korean band Jang Kiha and the Faces ( 장기하와 얼굴들) for their song "That Sucks" ("좋다 말았네") will make you hungry for Korean food. And then the ending will crush your soul. But until then, enjoy sexy close-up shots of steamed rice, a bubbling pot of stew, fried eggs, and more.

YouTube user John Kang helpfully described the dishes in the video's comments:

At 3:36
Starting from top right, going down and then right:
Blanched spinach that's been pan fried-slightly called Si-gum-ch(spinach) namul(marinaded cooked salad)
Gamja(potato) Jorim(reduced in soy sauce)
Buchimgae(korean style savoury pancake, not sure what he put in it)
Mul-gimchi(water based kimchi)
Pan fried tofu
Jap-chae(sweet potato starch noodles pan fried with sesame seed oil, soy sauce, vegetables, and usually some meat)
Kong-ganjang/Kong-jorim(beans cooked in so sauce and honey redux)

In the big pot:
Daenjang(Korean bean paste, similar but distinctive from miso) Jjigae(Main soup) with clam based soup, vegetables, and tofu
Baechu(cabbage)-kimchi: most common kimchi
Muyl-chi(anchovies) Jorim(pan fried with soy sauce based redux)
Jang-jorim: eggs and beef that's been slow cooked in soy sauce based soup, imagine corned beef with softer less salty texture
Dongue-rang-tthang/gogi(meat) wanja(balls): minced meat, vegetables, simple seasonings bound together with egg.

Can any Korean speakers out there share what the song is about?
