 Naver announced Tuesday it has made upgrades to its AI search engine, called “Airsearch,” now offering more optimized search results for users.
* optimized 최적화된
 “Since the Naver mobile app has access to users’ personal information ranging from gender, age and other specifics, AI offers more detailed content and finds useful content that users weren’t even looking for in the first place,” a Naver official said.
* look for 찾다, 구하다
 For instance, if a female in her 30s clicks on “how to decorate a room,” the search engine recommends more detailed search terms such as “how to improve the mood of my room,” rather than offering a vast amount of data or room decor tips, the official added.

 The fame of “K-food” was not built in a day. Korean cuisine, an important component of the country’s soft power along with K-pop and K-dramas that have a relatively short history, dates back centuries, with written records of it going back to the Three Kingdoms period.

 In metropolitan cities, fine dining restaurants that serve ornate contemporary Korean cuisines and small eateries with bite-sized Korean snacks are easy to find. However, places that serve traditional food in manners and style that Korean ancestors used to enjoy are hard to find.

 Fortunately, there are those who are committed to studying, recording and passing down the traditions of Korean cuisine. One such person is Seo Myeong-whan, a food researcher and CEO of Mijeoggamgag, a food consulting and cooking class center.

 “My job is different from that of typical chefs or food researchers. I advise and instruct restaurant owners, chefs, apprentices and novices who seek the original and traditional Korean food,” said Seo on a recent afternoon at Mijeoggamgag in Yeonhui-dong, northern Seoul, during an interview with The Korea Herald. For over 20 years, Seo has been teaching and advising leading entrepreneurs, restaurateurs and individuals who simply wish to cook Korean food in the traditional way.
