I’ve been living in Korea for a little over 7 years now and I often get asked by friends and family to bring them back Korean gifts when I visit home during the vacations. My mom loves the green tea and although I’m not really into Kpop or dramas hardcore, some of my friends are and I’ll bring them back a poster or trinket of some sort. I also have several friends who love the variety of snacks and instant noodles.
However, some of you may not have friends or family in Korea or you may not be going anytime soon, so I’ve made a list of some of my favorite things that you can find online or at your local Korean mart to satisfy that need.
Most of these can be found on Amazon and some on other great sites. So without further ado, let’s get started!

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.
