What constitutes as "fancy" Korean food?


I think the closest you're gonna get is the "royal court cuisine" (궁중 한정식) but I don't feel that it's really worth going out of your way for, as it's mostly stuff you'd find in your school cafeteria anyway, and on top of that it can be pretty expensive. 




I like Korean food just fine, and it certainly has it's charm, but IMO the words "korean food" and "fancy" shouldn't appear in the same sentence unless they're separated by a "is not".

I've not eaten there, but "The Lounge" at the Park Hyatt is supposed to be high-class Korean food.

Apparently they have a very seasonal menu, with a focus on quality ingredients.

Just checked out the menu, hanwoo tartar, mandu and steak all sound good, but it's 90k per head, and if you get the wine pairing tack on another 30k. Looks better than the 한정식, though.

수능 tomorrow! That means I am getting off early today and heading out of town for the night. I shall be back in the afternoon tomorrow. All the while, I will not be thinking of work.

For the past few weeks, I've noticed a decrease in the quality of my main school's lunches.  I wonder if budget cuts impact school lunch.......

There's always a week or two during the middle of a semester that I notice the lunches get cheaper and more carb-y. I feel like most schools plan their lunches to be good at the start so nobody complains, and then save some money in the middle, and then blow the remaining budget at the end.

I don't eat the lunches anymore, but my schools always seemed to have a rapid decline in quality as we approached the the last month of the year, not sure if it is budget related or whether they are just trying and clear everything out of the kitchens before vacation....
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.

haha good catch. Peep Show rules.

I've been super lazy about signing out of my accounts on Chrome at school recently and sometimes I get paranoid that someone is gonna log into my facebook, reddit, etc when I'm not around. That wouldn't be too bad, I guess...

... just please don't look through my history  :sad: :sad:

My Korean friend took me out last night and it all went a bit pear.

He said I could sleep at his place (Sillim), which is great (I live near Anyang). I needed to make a skype call to my buddy back in Canada last night so I went outside and did it. I don't remember much but I remember not having my phone and going up some stairs with some young dudes and we got to their door and I started thinking, "nah, no, this ain't right." So I jetted downstairs and they followed me, not aggressively, but just coming back down after me. There were some cops outside, so I told them that I lost my phone and they phoned it. The guys pocket starts ringing. He has my phone. The cops tell him to give it back, he does. They leave. I don't even know where I am, all I know is that I'm in Sillim. I've been there 5 times but I sure as hell don't know the back streets. Fukking scary, man, no joke. I got home at 7AM. I could have slept at 1AM, but I went out for a skype call and this shit went down at........... 430? What a mess. Still have a lot to improve on with my behaviour and priorities.

I don't know what would have happened had I went with those guys. Maybe nothing. But they did have my phone and didn't tell me.

Couldn't help but think of how easy it is to get lost and taken advantage of when we've all had a few. Be careful out there.

Sounds like we were moments away from either an expat Sex tape scandal or murder. Riveting stuff. Imagine the thread on waygook though....
