    Upsidedown Again's Note:

    This is a delicious soup that Koreans serve at the New Year. You won't find these ingredients in your local groccery store, but an oriental market should have them. This soup is pretty easy, but looks beautiful when served.

      Second time I've made this recipe, this time using clear chicken broth as the base. Like the chicken broth A LOT! This is a great and bracing soup that needs no added flavoring.

      So happy we have a Korean grocery close. Discovering this cuisine is a great find for my family.

      Thank you for publishing the recipe, Upsidedown!

      This was the easiest recipe I could find, and it tastes just like my mom's! I added some carrots, onions and fish cakes and it was perfect!
