Cast Iron question.

So I got my first cast iron pan (Lodge, 10.25) I seasoned by following this instruction ( I seasoned with grapeseed oil.

After seasoning, I tried to cook some pork and kimchi together. First I heated up the pan, then poured grapeseed oil before putting ingredients. As soon as put in the oil, smoke started appear and dark spot started to appear. But I still continued to cook because well, I was hungry.

This is what looks like after cooking and tried to clean it.

I found this post ( about removing rust with potato. I tried it and this is how it look:

Slightly better but still rusty. What did I exactly mass up for my brand new cast iron? Do you not need to use additional oil for a seasoned cast iron?
