Different Types of Jeon (Korean Pancake)

Types of Korean Jeon


Jeon is one of my top 5 favorite Korean foods. Although greasy at times, it fills me up and it’s great with Magkeolli (especially in the wintertime). Many expats seem to like it too (most seem to prefer Pajeon), but I soon found out that there are many many others. So many, that I couldn’t fit them all into one graphic. My favorite is Kkaennipjeon. When they serve it at school, I usually eat about 10-15 of them.

Hyo and I also made this type of jeon back during the Chuseok holidays. Very fun! go try some of these out if you haven’t already.

Remember that romanization is only a tool! Try not to depend on it too much and try learning the Korean alphabet and how to pronounce the letters properly and you will have a much easier time learning.

Some great books to get your started are Korean Made Simple: A beginner's guide to learning the Korean language and Become a Hangeul Master: Learn to Read and Write Korean Characters
