"I can answer this!! I have a Korean store near me, but no flakes, just powder was available. I think there are supply chain issues because of the current pandemic. The powder isn't as fine as what we know as chile powder, so I bought it. I didn't use the full 2 cups, 1.5 cups instead. The heat is intense! I realized, after the fact, because the powder finer, there is more surface area of the bits because there is more of them, and therefore more heat. My next time I'm only going to add 1/2 cup of red pepper powder, and see where the heat level is at. If we need more heat, I can always up the red pepper level."
