Here’s my opinion, from someone who tried to make it work without K-pepper flakes once: The variey of peppers used to make Korean hot pepper flakes have unique sweet earthy flavor with a hint of heat. Dried chili flakes are made from a different variety of peppers. They are mighty hot but they are missing the flavor profile that makes the food taste, well, Korean. The cost of K- pepper flakes is well worth it. Have fun!
