Is the South Korea known for specific food/cuisine?

Much like all the other Asian countries, food exploration in South Korea can be exhilarating and full of wonderful surprises. Although South Korea is more well-known for technology, recent delicacies like kimchi prove this is changing. Bulgogi, a marinated beef barbecue, is a popular dish with many locals and foreigners. It's a savoury, juicy dish of marinated meat, grilled with garlic and sliced onion and served with a thick, spicy red paste called ssamjang. Japchae is a stir-fried noodle dish often served as a side dish. This dish consists of noodles fried up with shredded vegetables, sweet potato, beef, sugar, and a hint of soy sauce. Sometimes other ingredients like mushrooms are added to the dish. One of the most famous dishes in South Koreas is Kimchi, a staple in Korean cuisine and is a spicy and sour dish made from fermented vegetables prepared with an array of ingredients, cabbage being one of the main ones. One of South Korea's traditional hot soups is Seolleongtang or ox bone soup. This soup is made from ox meat, ox bones, and briskets, most commonly seasoned with ground black pepper, salt, minced garlic, and chopped green onions.
