When I watch dramas and movies one thing that's always fascinated me was the korean cuisine that we see these characters chowing down alllllll the time. Their food and the way they eat everything from the dishes, utensils, floor tables, side dishes, ramen pots and more.

Anyone else?

There are two things I really want to try. One is kimchi, cause it's just traditional. And the other is kimbap cause it looks like sooo much fun. Of course there's other stuff, but those two are on the top of my list.

Has anyone else tried or wants to try korean food?

p.s. even the ramyen looks great.

Isn't the second one just sushi? That being said, i would love to try some Korean food. Even Black Bean Ramen/noodles?

@Skye: Kimbap doesn't have raw fish/tuna like sushi does since it can only contain ham, eggs and various veggies. And they're always served warm, which makes them more yummier!

@msrules92: You should try kimchi!!! I'm not fond of spicy foods but there's a certain taste on them that makes me want to eat more and more. They're a good combination with meat and any types of ramen too! :D

I've had kimbap before. My friend made it for me, sans the ham because i don't eat pork so I haven't really eaten much Korean cuisine. Though I have tried a beef rendition of Jajajanmyun (if that's how you spell it) the black bean noodles and wasn't really a fan...
aside from that....i've had some kimchi! my neighbors are very kind and like to share lol. its delicious!

I've had Kimchi Stew, and the stuff is awesome!

I wanna try Kimchi too : DD and also bulgogi (if it's the one i mean...), Jajangmyun,

and when i have enough age i wanna try soju/makgeolli : DD

I don't think they eat this often in dramas (or at least I've never really seen this eaten in the dramas I've watched), but bibimbap, rice with an egg and various vegetables mixed in, is the greatest thing known to humanity, especially dolsot bibimbap, when they serve it in a piping hot stone bowl that's coated in raw egg and sesame oil so that the rice along the bottom fries up nicely. And then with the gochujang mixed in! It sounds really simple, but YUM.

I wanna try the seaweed soup that they eat for their birthdays(I think)

My group will cook for the Open Gates Day *a school festival* asian food. So I was thinking to try kimchi xD. I can't wait. The food looks sooo delicious in dramas *drolls*. I hope we'll be able to do that.

I am also curious about their dishes. I would love to try: Kimchi, the rice cake soup (I've seen many variety shows where they show this), Bibimbap...

I never want to try Gobchang, that just reminds me of the Puerto Rican morcillas and I have never, and never will, eat those.

one thing about korean food that surprises me: their soup has a white color. Our must have a red color and must be spicy (we love spicy food). I also hate pork meat but i want to try some kind of korean bread since i watched "king of baking kim tak goo" drama.

Skye, i don't know what exactly is in the picture, but I know that korean, filipino and hawaiian cuisine have something very similar to japanese maki.

Kimchi is sooo yummy, but it can mean so many different things. One definite distinction is how long the kimchi has been allowed to age. Like most fermented foods, fresh is going to taste different than something that is a older. I like fresh to a couple months old, but any longer than that is too much for my taste.
