Hi Ian,


Most Korean restaurants will have bulgogi on their menu, but to be safe, please try going to a Korean BBQ place where they will have various other types of Korean BBQ to try.


Cheers,

Hi Nisha,


어떤 음식 좋아해요? 어떤 음식을 좋아해요? "Which food do you like?"

김치찌개 좋아해요. 김치찌개를 좋아해요.


All of the above are used. And they all make perfect sense.

The topic marker puts more emphasis on the topic, which makes 김치찌개 좋아해요? more of a general question as opposed to 김치찌개를 좋아해요? (As if unexpected or unusual.)


The difference is very subtle, but it is there. :sweat_smile:

Do you understand the difference?


Thanks,

Claire

안녕하세요 !


I know how to cook none of those dishes :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. But all of those sound AND look so yummy...:heart: Maybe I could try and cook one of those at home? I dunno, I'll Google the recipes.


Will the sentence 김치 찌개를 좋아해요 (I like kimchi stew) be correct? The 를 in the sentence is the topic marking particle, am I right? So if it is used in the above sentence, why not in 김치찌개 좋아해요? (Do you like kimchi stew?) ? Is there a difference when asking a question and stating something?


감사합니다 !
