The South Korean-born chef announced his plans to open a restaurant at the new Park MGM (currently the Monte Carlo) on Facebook, promising to “bring all the food, culture, dj’s, hip hop, life and fun of LA and try and find a way to blend that with everything that makes Vegas great for locals and visitors alike.”
