For many reasons, home was not an environment I wanted to be in, growing up. I knew as difficult as it would be, I wanted to approach "When You Think of Home" in the context of my childhood as a cathartic act. One night, while watching an episode of "Ugly Delicious" and trying to think of ideas for the show, David Chang talked about the Korean-American Thanksgiving—one that I'm all too familiar with. He mentioned his most vivid memory was of his mother's back, cooking. This resonated with me so much. When my mother was in this act, cooking Kimchi jjigae or Tteokguk soup, I felt safe. I felt nourished and nurtured, but only from a distance, from a woman I couldn't understand. Of her many sides, my mother's back was the most approachable, and the one I wish I knew more of.
