At NAE:UM we serve contemporary Seoul cuisine, a harmony of Western techniques and Korean heritage flavors. Our wish is to reflect the dynamicism of South Korea’s capital, an international city that yet retains its strong tradition.

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



Chef Louis Han was born and bred in Gangnam, a Seoul district famed for setting trends. 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 the exotic locations Lebanon and Abu Dhabi before he settled 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.
