Co-founder / Media Director
Jin Kim is a co-founder and media director for Cafe île and also a documentary film producer/director.
Why is she here in the café île, among the chefs? She answers people's questions.
"First, I love food and people. Many things changed after the pandemic, I see. After two years of being untact, I missed communicating closely with people, sharing food and joy. I want to serve food with sincerity.
Second, I want to create a restaurant that practices love. Jesus said to love others as you love yourself. I want to practice love not only for the customers who visit café île, but also for the people I work with. I believe that when the working environment overflows with joy, food full of love and sincerity is made, and such food should be served to guests.
Third, I want to create a profit structure where everyone can make money, not just the owner. Material is important. The moment you think that the substance that came to you is yours, you may become greedy. I want to share, I want to contribute at least my pie to good causes."
She is currently producing a serial food show in which the Chef (as a host) visits a selected applicant who has a desire to learn how to cook a specific menu. This cooking show establishes a new perspective and puts a twist on the common theme of a studio cooking program. The idea of the show is to listen to each applicant’s story as their menu is being introduced, and then proceed to teach each applicant (and the viewing audience) how to prepare the items on that menu in each episode. Our chefs at cafe ile are the host of this show and it will fit with the theme that we pursue to produce and develop new ideas and present those ideas on documentary film for the public’s use; this her ultimate goal!
