[Baek Jong Won's Alley Restaurant Roundup] 15th AlleyㅣPart 1 - 5

Nationwide ratings for episode 71 that aired on June 19: 6.9% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+1115, -19] I feel like the taco restaurant ahjusshi is going to be hella stubborn 

2. [+962, -34] He was a cooking instructor so his pride will probably be intense... Whether if it's Baek Jong Won or someone else, if someone comes and criticize you, your emotions will be down... But still, blaming it on your wife that there was a lot of lettuce in the taco.... Sigh....

3. [+848, -19] The grandma from the kalgooksu restaurant seems like she has a good personality and I think she puts in sincerity into her ingredients (t/n: kalgooksu is literally translated into knife noodles but it's a noodle soup dish and it's one of my faves!)

4. [+625, -42] The taco restaurant owner's facial expression.. His facial expression looks like, "I'm the best in life but why are they telling me what to do", I hate people like that the most...

5. [+360, -16] The male owner of the taco restaurant was being stubborn and I feel like he's going to clash a lot with Baek Jong Won in the future...

Nationwide ratings for episode 72 that aired on June 26: 6.6% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+2646, -8] It was nice to watch because it felt like they finally went ahead with a solution-like solution... Because she's a veteran restaurant owner who knows how to fundamentally provide a clean and light taste, I hope she receives the solution well and hits daebak and is happy with her son and daughter-in-law...

2. [+1416, -12] Grandma, be healthy for a long, long time~ ^^ I was choked up the whole time while watching.. It's the best from what I've seen.. Baek Jong Won-nim, thank you..

3. [+1153, -10] Even if she experienced that pain, she's pure, she knows how to be thankful, and seeing how she takes care of the people around her it made me really reflect and I was embarrassed of myself. Be healthy and prosper!!

4. [+822, -9] The kalgooksu restaurant owner has a good personality and I can tell from her eyes that she's pure. Be healthy and I hope she makes a lot of money ㅠㅠ

5. [+456, -7] As a parent... yesterday's episode was really heartbreaking.. ㅜㅜ

Nationwide ratings for episode 73 that aired on July 3: 6.6% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+1302, -12] I really like that they provided a solution to a restaurant like the kalgooksu restaurant.. I was in a bad mood because sometimes, they would provide solutions to childish villains who expect you to spoon feed them but the kalgooksu restaurant is so heartwarming.. But I think she needs to definitely cut down items on the menu.. 

2. [+676, -10] Kalgooksu restaurant owner, always be happy

3. [+310, -7] Grandma, be healthy ^^

4. [+286, -4] I like that there are a lot of scenes where she's smiling, I hope that you only walk the flower path

5. [+187, -11] The taco restaurant did change only after two weeks but tacos and burritos are foods where the opinions are divided... They need to hurry up and decide whether they going to make it traditional or Korean fusion.. Seeing the preview, they said they want to do both but they'll flop if they do that... It's bigger because of the spices... That's why this food doesn't do well even in Seoul.

Nationwide ratings for episode 74 that aired on July 10: 5.8% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+1958, -24] Baek Jong Won taking care of the kalgooksu restaurant, going through with the solution without missing even a small thing is really heartwarming.. Sometimes I would frown because they would go through with the solution for young business owners who, sometimes don't make sense and expect you to spoon feed them but it was really nice watching the kalgooksu restaurant this time

2. [+1580, -18] I think the best scene from today's episode was him offering ideas and opinions to the side dish businesses at the traditional market... ㅠㅠ I think it was a scene that best reflected that the show's purpose isn't to save only a couple of alley restaurants but also the local businesses near the alley ㅠㅠ I think Baek Jong Won is really amazing... ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

3. [+1109, -14] I think the burrito restaurant really met a good wife, if he didn't meet a wife who would accommodate like that I don't think he would meet anyone

4. [+904, -68] Ugh, that stubborn burrito restaurant... Seriously, I hate that type of person.....

5. [+749, -39] I wish the burrito restaurant didn't come out. He's really stubborn, he's really prideful, and he keeps saying this and that... I think Baek Jong Won is going to explode next week, I seriously get annoyed every time the burrito restaurant comes out     

Nationwide ratings for episode 75 that aired on July 17: 6.3% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+2375, -56] Don't have a couple's quarrel in front of the customers, don't view your wife as a kid and view her as your partner and I hope he respects her suggestions - because your wife is a saint and she's living while receiving that loser personality of yours~~              ↪ [+247, -8] That's what I'm saying, I think his wife really has a good personality.. Her husband keeps being too wishy-washy with weird reasoning.. The wife is a saint

2. [+1420, -16] The wise saying from the Pobangteo donkatsu restaurant owner today: The customer's mouth enjoys it by my body being tired.

3. [+1237, -48] The female boss at the burrito restaurant is really lucky ㅋㅋ She's good at looking cool, she's good at controlling the male boss, she's good at persuading and she speaks nicely ㅎㅎ She married well 

4. [+1008, -14] No but he only fried 120 pieces of shrimp for 30 servings and he makes his friend who's also his subordinate, do the work again and he's stubbornly persisting that he's tired. Isn't that too much? The friend sets the rice, sets the shrimp, gives water, gives refills for rice, refills the side dishes, cleans, does the dishes, and carries out the payments - he does everything, what is he, superman? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+478, -34] Seriously, Baek Jong Won is the best      

the kalgooksu grandma ㅠㅠ
my freaking kokoro ㅠㅠㅠㅠ
at first when the taco restaurant came out, I was like "WTF is that" when they showed their tacos, especially since I live in LA and I love tacos but I'm glad they finally chose to go on one path rather than being wishy washy until the end
