        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.

            Yes, it does, Heangjin, as in saeng maekju.

    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.
