Preparation time is very tight for Key, who is currently travelling back and forth, to and from, Japan and other Asian countries and is busy with vigorous international activities. However, Key’s cooking teacher Chef Kim Sangmin said, “Key possesses exceptional sense when it comes to cooking, and he was recommended because he himself enjoys cooking, but it is true that time is tight for the May exam” and added in his concern.
