The guest for this episode of Arirang TV's live road talk show "B CRUZE" is Ambassador Arslan Hakan Okcal. The hosts of "B CRUZE", Todd Sample (US), BapMokja (UK) and Haeppy (Canada) met with Ambassador Okcal, Turkish ambassador to Korea, and talked about the relationship between Korea and Turkey as well as Ambassador Okcal's experiences as an ambassador who travels around the world.

Ambassador Okcal has been a diplomat for more than 30 years. However, Korea is the first Asian country he has been appointed to. Turkey regards Korea as its brother nation and it is also one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey. Such relationship springs from when Turkey sent 15,000 soldiers to fight in the Korean War.

Todd VS Haeppy VS BapMokja : Intense seafood competition at the seafood market

One of the things that helped Ambassador Okcal to adjust to Korea so fast is food. Korean foods are similar to Turkish foods in many ways. Both countries enjoy eating lots of fresh vegetables along with meat and are also fond of seafood. Ambassador Okcal is especially fond of Korean seafood.

Ambassador Okcal's favorite seafood market is the new Noryangjin Fish Market.He visited his favorite place with the hosts of B CRUZE. They enjoyed eating fresh raw octopus as well as various fish and had a quiz on facts about Turkey.
