Cooking isn’t everyone’s forte, and that’s okay. While some are born to be master chefs, some of us are better staying out of the kitchen (for the safety of ourselves and everyone else). If you’re a bad cook, just know that you’re in good company. Here are seven moments where K-pop idols created kitchen chaos – so you know you’re not alone!
Any seasoned NCTzen will know about Mark and his inability to fry eggs. His disastrous attempt to fry an egg even caught the attention of Gordon Ramsay once, so you know it’s not looking good. For this challenge, Mark had to successfully fry 23 eggs, sunny-side up. You can guess how well that went! They may not be pretty, but they probably tasted great.

2. TWICE’s Nayeon
Baking is a little different than cooking, but there’s still lots of way to make a mess. Take TWICE’s eldest member Nayeon for an example – she spent a lot less time shaping her cookie dough and a lot more time hitting it! It seems like the cookies turned out cute in the end, though, even with the rather creative decorating job.
3. TXT’s Yeonjun
It seemed like everything was going pretty smoothly for Yeonjun, at least in the beginning of his aglio e olio adventure. The pasta came together pretty well, and the sauce looked delicious. Disaster struck right at the end though. The dish was much more eager to be on the table than the plate! Thankfully for Yeonjun, the rest of TXT didn’t even notice while they were eating it.
Jennie says that you need patience when you cook, but that doesn’t mean she listens to her own rules! She seems very eager to flip her pancake before it’s ready, making a big mess with the batter. She flips her first pancake just a little early, spilling it over the side – but her second pancake ends up totally burnt! Practice makes perfect.
5. TREASURE’s Jihoon and Choi Hyun Suk
Ramyun seems like it’d be pretty hard to mess up, but Jihoon and Choi Hyun Suk prove us wrong! They appeared on the first episode of a variety show earlier this year, and the results were pretty disastrous. From overzealous seasoning to burnt sauce, practically everything that could’ve gone wrong went really wrong. They get bonus points for the laughs!
6. STAYC’s Seeun
Pancakes are deceptively simple, because it’s not just Jennie that struggled. STAYC’s Seeun also had a hard time with her Korean savory pancakes – she manages to crush one into pieces and flips another with such enthusiasm that she splashes oil everywhere. It lands in the pan, thankfully, but it’s totally burnt!
Korean glazed sweet potatoes involve a lot of hot sugar, which is probably how Jungkook managed to basically cement his to the plate! The gravity-defying potatoes were the subject of a lot of jokes and laughter from the other members, and Jungkook’s presentation of his prized dish made light of his self-made disaster.
