My Korean Cuisine & Cooking Experience

My experience with Korean food is very limited. I've never cooked a Korean meal in my own kitchen, and I've only eaten in a Korean restaurant a few times in my life. There was a Korean Barbeque restaurant in the Tokyo suburb of Shinjuku, near the conversation school where I worked. It was one of those places with the little grills in the middle of the table, and the waiter would bring all the raw ingredients for you to cook yourself. I've always enjoyed that type of dining, so I used to eat there once in awhile when I had plenty of time to relax and idle over dinner.

So...needless to say, the learning curve is going to be rather steep on this month's Dinner & a Movie. But after last month's Japanese extravaganza, I think I'm up to the challenge.
