I find that this soup can be fishy too if not prepared correctly, but if you follow Maangchi’s recipe correctly, it should taste fine. The most important thing is to put the bean sprouts in the pot along with cold water, put on the lid, and keep it closed throughout the boiling process until it is cooked. If you dont cover it throughout the entire heating process, the soup tends to taste fishy. Also, the roasted flavor of sesame does an excellent job of cutting fishiness, so its important to use well roasted and crushed sesame seeds as well as sesame oil. Hope that helps!
