Since the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) began, we’ve all become home cooks in our little ways. Most of us has finally learned how to cook the classic local snacks like turon, puto, and the like. However, K-drama fans are more curious to learn recipes of their favorite Korean food. But aside from the usual K-BBQ grilling experience, Korean dishes look super complicated to do, especially if you're a novice in the kitchen. Luckily, TikTok is more than just app where you can dance your heart away!
Here are some easy recipes we found on TikTok that will help you cook your favorite Korean dish step by step!
