My travels to South Korea make me totally cool with my students!! They love K-pop and are blown away that I have actually visited Korea!!! The fact that I know about the food there also, just gives me extra kudos!! It’s a wonderful slick modern culture, and the food is just an awesome highlight of life in South Korea. It is not as greasy as Chinese food, which tends to have more oil and a little saltier. The Tasty Korean grilled scallops highlight this wonderful food culture!
