10 Korean Foods to Eat in the Winter


 

So there you have it. These are not all the winter foods that are popular, but the most common ones you can find. My personal favorite is Ho-tteok. Sweet and filling…I can’t get enough of ’em. Hyo likes the roasted chestnuts although I’m not really fond of them. Actually many of the foods on this list, but Hyo gave me the idea for the graphic and let me know which ones were pretty popular.

Periodic Table of Korean Foods


I enjoyed creating this, but it was very tedious and detailed oriented. One of the most difficult things was making sure I didn’t repeat an abbreviation and checking for the correct spellings of all the foods. It was also a bit difficult dividing some foods into their respective categories because some things you could classify as a soup AND seafood (꽃게탕 for example).

I checked over and over for mistakes, but I’m sure there may be a few I still didn’t catch. If I find any (or if you guys find some) I will go back and make the corrections. Also, I know that these aren’t all of the Korean foods and drinks but if I added every food and drink, the table would be even bigger than it is now.

So I basically just tried to name the major foods and drinks.

My favorites? Dak Galbi, Hotteok, Samgyeopsal, Ggaetnipjeon, and Buldak. What are yours?

So these don’t include all of the types of tea you can find, but basically 12 of the most popular. Some are unique to Korea, and some are not. My personal fav? Citron and Green Tea. Citron is my personal fav when battling a cold. If you’re in Seoul, check out some of the tea houses in Insadong to get a chance to try most of these (although expensive!).

Seoul Subway Graphic…Line Lengths and Years Opened

Seoul Metro Lines

 

The Seoul Metro is one of my favorite things about living in Korea (especially coming from Detroit where public transport is virtually non existent), so I decided to make a simple graphic on the 19 subway lines, their length, and the year they opened. It was pretty interesting researching when each line opened and seeing how fast and how big the system has become since Line 1 opened.

I actually hate Line 1 the most as I can usually never sit down, and it always seems to be the most crowded line that I take. I live in Incheon now, so I frequent Incheon Line 1. Incheon Line 2 is being built right now which should open in 2014. Click on the graphic for a closer look.

Which lines are your favorite and which ones do you take the most often?
