“Woke” American of Korean descent accuse Schulson and Tinari, owners of ‘Char Kol Korean Barbeque’ of cultural appropriation

Char Kol dubbed as a Korean barbecue restaurant along Sansom St, Philadelphia, faced flak for its theme. Owners Michael Schulson and Nina Tinari who appears to have no Asian relationship to the food they serve.

Phillymag’s Alex Tewfix writes about a Korean-American named Hemi Park. She was a restaurant worker from South Philadelphia who stood outside Char Kol. She carried a sign that read, “MY CULTURE ISN’T YOUR ACCESSORY.”

Char Kol offends woke Koreans

The pop-up grill restaurant Char Kol is decorated with Sapporo beer umbrellas and paper lanterns decorated with cherry blossoms, and the menu includes gyoza—very Japanse. It also has a drink called the Silk Road, named after the Asian trade route.

Watered-down Korean food for white profit

Hemi Park told Tewfik via phone call that the food itself is neither authentically Korean nor innovative fusion, just “watered-down Korean food for white comfort and white taste buds.”

Hemi is particularly angry to see the same foods mocked and made profitable once they were “discovered” by white people.

An appreciation of the (Korean) cuisine

On Char Kol’s side, a spokesperson said Char Kol is an appreciation of the (Korean) cuisine. To appease the “woke American-Asians,” Schulson removed the (Japanese) lanterns and renamed the (Asian) drinks. The Japanese gyoza taken off the menu.
