For Daewoong Kim's life, the subject of loss is very pertinent. Kim's father could not escape the feeling of great sadness not only over Kim's grandmother's death but missed many aspects of her life; home cooked meals in particular. His father's loss made Kim reflect on the connection between his mother and himself. A connection that can be measured physically as well as emotionally as Kim moved away to London and his other lives in Korea. When describing Kim's identity as a person food is undoubtedly a central aspect. In many ways, particular foods establish Kim's identity as a Korean, but certain foods also resonate strongly with Kim as they are reminder of the emotional connection with his mother.
