    The clothing and fabric makes me drool just as much as the food

    Whilst I understand silkworms are tasty, and sheep certainly are (have had a sprung lamb for lunch today, I can reconfirm), not to mention goats and the unfortunately increasingly hard-to-find yeti, I’ve never tried cotton, polyester, or what-the-feck-is-thister. In fact, they are not even on the foodadar, except as inference (“UFO” — Indigestible Foodunlike Obstruction”)…

    Nope. Nope. No. Uh-uhn. No-nonononono. Nope.

    Beondegi.

    Silkworms: an environmentally friendly delicacy?: “According to legend, 5,000 years ago a Chinese empress discovered silk when a silkworm cocoon fell into her tea. […]”

    Whilst I never had those particular bugs myself, they (or at least the pupae) is apparently something of a Korean delicacy, albeit perhaps an acquired taste.

    bundagi are definitely an acquired taste. more precisely, i don’t think they taste like anything (fried bundagi are kindof like small, unflavored cashews), it’s the smell i can’t stand.

    since you were shopping for hambuks, does that mean you’re having a paebaek?
