  1. Does anyone know the main difference between kimchi jjigae and kimchi-guk? It seems like Koreans are able to tell them apart but I don't really see a marked difference in the appearance of both!

    Thanks a lot!

  2. Hi SkyeF
    Kimchi soup (guk) tastes similar to kimchi stew (jjigae) but stew is thicker.

    We usually serve soup individually, and everyone gets one bowl. Kimchi stew is usually served in a pot and placed on the table for everyone to share. It's also saltier.
