At NAE:UM we serve contemporary Seoul cuisine, a harmony of Western techniques and Korean heritage flavors, moulded through years of international culture in South Korea’s capital city.

Our restaurant name means ‘a fragrance that evokes memories’. It embodies our goal to create innovative dishes that would bring a sense of nostalgia to our diners.



Chef Louis Han was born and bred in Gangnam, a Seoul district famed for being fast-forward. Since young, he has lived with a juxtaposition of Western cultures and Korean traditions, influencing his style of cooking. His adventurous heart took him to exotic locations Lebanon and Abu Dhabi before settling down in Singapore.

Chef Louis founded the concept of NAE:UM in late 2019 and stubbornly brought the restaurant to life during the pandemic. NAE:UM is his first venture as an independent restauranteur.
