"Hello Maangchi! I'm from the Netherlands and loving your recipes! I've made meju blocks but they smell very strong, they are attrackting flies also. Is this bad? I've put nets around them but I'm still afraid the flies will put eggs on them. When I made the meju blocks, first 2 days I put them in a container which I thought was well ventilated (because I have a cat and I didn't want him to come near the blocks) but I found out it wasn't. So they started sweating a little and develop slightly orange spots (see picture). After this I put them in my air dryer at 40 degrees Celcius so they're much more dry now but still very smelly and no mold yet after a week. Do you think they'll still develop well or could the smell mean they are rotting?"
