"As a Korean, I'm ashamed to admit I strongly dislike red bean paste and mung bean paste. My grandmother and dad were always so kind to let me eat the dduk while they ate the filling. So if I was to swap the paste for cooked fruit or even jam, do you think it would work? Is there a reason for why you make the half moon after you start cooking these cakes? Wouldn't it be easier to fold them in half before cooking first? Thank You!"

"Hello unni, I hope you'll be able to answer a few questions even though this was originally posted almost a year ago. If I don't have access to potato starch, can I use corn starch or is it best to just do all flour? And if I should omit all starch, should I increase the amount of flour to 4 cups? I know that it's best to make the the chicken stock from scratch but do you think using boxed chicken stock when you're in a hurry will drastically reduce the flavor? What's the best way to store the noodles for long term use? Since it's just me, I would rather make the full batch and freeze it versus making noodles fresh every time. Should I freeze the dough and them bring it to room temp and roll and cut when needed or freeze the cut up noodles? Thank You!!!"
