RM: 야~ 간장~~ 양념으로 알지, 촥촥 뿌려가지고 yea~ you know right? Soysauce sprayed on top~
JK: 나 처음알았어, 서울에 와가지고 I didn’t know about it until I came to Seoul.
V: 어 나도. 나 맨날 발라먹었잖아. (붓으로) yea me too, we brush soy sauce from where I came.
RM: 아냐 우린(서울) 뿌려먹지. ‘아저씨 어묵국물하나 퍼주세요~’ No, we spray it. ‘Excuse me, a cup of eomuk broth please~’
Suga: 어묵에 간장을 뿌려??? Soy sauce is spraied?
RM: 네, 스프레이로 간장을 뿌려먹어요. 아 이형 아직 몰라요? 아직 안먹어봤어요? Yes, we spray soy sauce. Ah, this hyung still doesn’t know about it? Haven’t seen tried it on the street?
Suga: 몰라 길거리에서 안먹어봤어. I don’t know, I haven’t eaten on the street.
V looks excited to think about eomuk 어묵/odeng 오뎅.
‘Eomuk’ is one of the street food you can easily find anywhere in Korea.
When you google eomuk, you will see the word ‘fish cake’ but I don’t want you to have any ideas from the translated name.
It’s more like a fried fish batter.
Eomuk is fried also and the main ingredients are minced fish, seafood, flour, and eggs.
Eomuk is usually sold this way on the street ‘Pojangmacha’.
‘Pojangmacha’ is open-cart like street store. It’s even more popular in winter, especially eomuk, because it is served warm with broth.
If you are from a place where night market is popular, or you have been to a night market, I believe you know ‘pojangmacha’ well!
Look at Jiminie selfie eating eomuk hehehe😚
Jungkookie is also eating eomuk!
Jimin was once found eating at a ‘Pojangmacha’ seen by Japanese armys. (He looks so shook they caught him)
He was eating Toppoki & ‘Sundae’. Yes, the sundae we just talked about up there!
[side note] about eomuk broth.
Eomuk is sold by each skewer. But you can always ask for eomuk broth to drink for free!
It’s up to the owners to serve the broth from the beginning or not. However, it is not a discourtesy to ask for broth.
Just say, ‘어묵국물 좀 주세요’ (eomuk gukmul jom juseyo) and say ‘감사합니다’ (gam sa hab ni da).
= eomuk broth please, thank you
You can even ask for eomuk broth when you didn’t order eomuk.
Maybe having some eomuk& eomuk broth is how Koreans survive the harsh winter outdoor.😉
[BTS Jin’s] Eomuk, odeng, and gukmul
Many of Armys already know, probably wondering when I’m going to address Jin’s eomuk-ie.
I learned to see good things BIG.
Anyways, this Worldwide handsome raised three sugar gliders named ‘Eomuk’, ‘Odeng’, and ‘Gukmul’.
Odeng=fish cake in Japanese
Gukmul= broth/ soup in general
Aigoo, Seokjina… 😂😂😂
Unfortunately, Eomukie and Odengie became stars in pet heaven, and only Gukmulee is left on earth. He is at Jin’s parents’ house.
Later, he wrote a song about his gone pets ‘Tonight’.
(Jin also had a dog named Jjang-gu who became a star)
