Tastes weird. Not at all an authentic taste. Not sure what it is.

Needed more spices and maybe a little bit of something else i can't put my finger on. Still good though.

Great! I added 1/2 a tsp of chili red pepper to make it have a little of bit more kick! Loved the taste, almost exactly how my grandma made it

I added too much chili powder and red pepper flakes for my husband to enjoy it but I thought it was very tasty. Very easy to whip up.

Super yummy I don't like sesame seeds so I did not use them. Next time I will add a little less sugar

This was easy to make and delicious. I like to make a bunch and eat it over a couple of days when I don't feel like cooking.

This was perfect! We had it with kirean bbq "ribs". It was the perfect accompaniment. I will definately be making it again.

Very good my Korean Boyfriend loved it! I'm a Caucasian girl who loves to cook. Definitely making it again!
Ellie C. 14 Jul 2016
I loved it! But I made it without the chili powder. I also pealed the cucumber, that brings a not so good taste but, hubby wanted it like this..
