Of these, I’ve only tried 순대 and 청국장. Hyo loves 번데기 from time to time. I don’t think I will ever get around to trying the rest except for maybe the live octopus. Which ones have you tried?

        Saeng or “live” means that it’s fresh and still wriggling. Delicious!

          Referring to food, saeng means “fresh” but not “live”: for example, saeng gogi means fresh, unfrozen, and yet uncooked meat, not live one.

    I eat 1&4 normally here in PH. #2 Beon-de-gi, I saw last week at the Korean mini-mart and thought I was reading it wrong, but no. It’s really silkworm O___O.
