Who doesn’t love bouncy glass noodles coated with a savory and slightly sweet sauce paired with colorful vegetables that are addicting AND refreshing? Today, we are finishing my Korean drama series strong with one of the most classic and popular Korean Dish ever, Japchae – Korean Glass Noodle Stir-fry. We are making a vegetarian version, but you can also add any protein of your choice, such as beef, pork, or chicken. Japchae is easy to make at home, super versatile and requires only a few simple ingredients. I will be sharing how to make my homemade Japchae sauce which is a perfect balance between savory and sweet!
The “Reply series” is one of my favorite Korean drama series on Netflix and one of the first series I ever got addicted to. I love that you get to connect and learn every single character’s story on the show and their friendship and love feel genius and relatable. One of my favorite quotes in life is from this show “Believing in my past choices without regret and loving them – that is the right answer, and that’s how to grow old with style.” Warning, the storyline is relatively slow, so I recommend it mainly to those that have alot of time to commit to the drama.
