Korean cuisine is famous for its fresh fish and seafood. With this much coastline, it’s no wonder that seafood is so popular! In this lesson, we’ll talk about various types of fish in Korean. Some of these you might find on a plate garnished with lemon, and some you might see on a snorkeling trip or in a fish tank peeking out from behind some coral!

Either way, this is important vocabulary to know while traveling.
