One day, she receives an invitation to join an elite chef in the country’s most famous restaurant.

His sharp eyes also scares his subordinates and his crazy culinary skills and out-of-the-box ideas for his presentation is unbeatable.

The ambitious Aoy

Aoy’s rug to riches story

From a small restaurant to becoming an owner of her own restaurant is not Aoy’s main goal. In fact, she only wanted to become “special”, where she challenges her own abilities to do better in the kitchen. However, being a part of the Hunger team made her learn dictatorship, the culinary politics inside the kitchen and more.


Aoy’s hunger for success might have hurt her first but that also made her thirsty for more. “Hunger” is the kind of film that will remind you of how you started in your career and how “hunger” for your own success can either lead you to fulfillment or the other way around.

    Oppa is Life is a fan page created in 2019 when I felt the need for another virtual space to pour out my feels, musings and fangirl experiences. It started as a Facebook fanpage but I later on decided to open other social media accounts because a single Facebook page just doesn’t feel enough.
