i was lacking two ingredients in this recipe so i had to work with what i had :( green onion & corn /rice syrup. maangchi said i can use honey & i did but i had to leave out the green onion :( but it still tasted veryyyyyyyy goood! my only complaint was, the hot pepper paste i bought was very liquidy not pastey like the ones i normally buy. i’m not too sure why or if it’s cause of the brand, but the out come was still AWESOMEEEEEE. this is before i put sesame seeds on it :) HEHE! try it! it’s so goood!
