Hi Colin,


Thank you for the feedback. Following what you've suggested, I've edited the Korean sentences with the word '다섯가지' meaning 'five' and '가장' meaning 'most.'


If you have any questions, please let us know.


Thank you.

I've been noticing that the Korean has always been saying in the notes: "What are popular _____ in Korea?" while the English always says "What are the MOST popular ______ in Korea?"


Even though the work 제일/가장 aren't being used in the Korean, does it have that nuance when translated to English?
