Although simply referred to as “Chinese food” in Korea, Korean-Chinese food might be unrecognisable to a mainland Chinese person. While dishes like jjajangmyeon have roots in China, they can only be found in Korea.

In this mini-episode of Fork the System, Joi Lee and HyoJin Park look into the history of jjajangmyeon, one of the most beloved dishes in Korea.
