"Hi Maangchi! I tried making this recipe, but the soup was rather bland for me. Is there a spicy version of this soup?"

"I love this recipe. Sometimes I make it with minced pork, other times with clams. And I usually add some shiitake mushroom because it makes the stew so savoury. The egg is the best part - I even put in 2 eggs for myself sometimes! Haha..."

"Just sharing a tip for people who can't get access to dried anchovies. In some Asian supermarkets, you may be able to find Ikan Bilis (anchovy) stock powders and stock cubes - usually Knorr or Maggi brands. Sometimes I use the no MSG versions to replace dried anchovies and they work well!"

"Hi Maangchi, Why do you microwave the anchovies in this recipe? In some of your other soup or stew recipes, you just put the anchovies straight in to boil with the kelp. I don't have a microwave - is there a big difference?"

"Hi Maangchi! I just made this today and loved it! Didn't have shishito peppers though so I used normal green chillies which still gave a nice flavour. I think I will put in a chili padi (small chili) next time as well for extra spice. The texture of the meat is a bit like those canned meat you find in Chinese supermarkets (which I love). Thank you!"

"Hi Maangchi! I made this for the first time and it's awesome! I made too much so I refrigerated and heated them up the next day, and the rice cakes were still chewy and tasty - I think it's because I used store-bought ones which are firmer. I did tweak your recipe a bit. It was a bit sweet so I added a touch of rice vinegar: http://danandesther.tumblr.com/post/98694681304/recipe-korean-rice-cakes-tteokbokki"

"I've never liked kimchi (too sour!) but tried making your mak kimchi for the first time and it was great fresh and not that difficult at all! Just a tip for people who use daikon radish instead of Korean radish: I was worried when the kimchi was fresh - it was bitter! But after a day of fermenting on the countertop, it lost some of its bitterness, so I think it will be fine when it fully ferments. Will keep watching your videos - they're awesome. Thanks Maangchi!"
