We made a mobile game -I am Ssam- to introduce Ssam and learn the benefits of the Korean wrap food culture using motion sensors and touch screen. This game will review all procedures and provide recipe that focuses on methods and benefits of the Ssam. In the Ssam, we sometimes add raw garlic to remove the greasy taste of meat. And also, many experiments have established the effect of raw garlic on cancer. So, we have to remember this precious fact tuck into a meal. I am Ssam makes the Korean food and the culture more interesting to know.

I am Ssam will work following the procedure. First, the user has to select a leaf, the main material of the Ssam. And then, select any pieces of food. Shake the smart device to wrap up the Ssam. After finishing this procedure, you will get information on the nutrition, and its effect. This can be the best chance to learn about Korean food culture and folk remedies.
