"Hi Maangchi, thanks for your comment. I made this again, but with some small adjustments. 1. Before cooking, I spread the newly-made steamed rice on a baking sheet and set it in front of a room fan for 5 minutes, which dried it out very quickly. This made a huge difference in the end result compared to using rice straight out of the rice cooker. 2. I removed the kimchi from the pan after stir frying it and put the rice in the pan by itself for a couple minutes, which gave it a really nice crispy texture on the outside. 3. I didn't add the 1/4 cup water mentioned in recipe. I only added the kimchi juice. With these changes, the rice was less mushy and even better this time (I didn't think that was possible)."

"I've attempted this several times before but without gochujang... I didn't know what I was missing. Gochujang is magic. I doubled everything in the recipe and added eggs, spam, and chinese sausage. GLORIOUS. This will last me a week (if I have self-control)."

"A tsp of gochujang in the sauce mixture makes it even better. I'll omit the salt next time, though."
