But aside from snacking on simple treats, imagine the realism of eating the same food your favorite character is munching on right in front of you. In this article, we focused on recipes from the K-Dramas "Crash Landing on You" and "Goblin."

Nurungji from "Crash Landing on You"

One of the most intriguing dramas of 2020, "Crash Landing On You" could possibly be one of the top K-Dramas in history. Due to this, it comes as no surprise that fans of the K-Drama will keep watching the show for years to come.

One of the best ways to elevate one's viewing experience? Eating one of Yoon Se Ri's (Son Ye Jin) favorite food: Nurungji. 


-2 cups white short-grain rice

-3 cups of water

-1 tbsp sesame oil



Wash the two cups of short-grain rice with cold water multiple times. Then cook the rice in a rice cooker. Once done, proceed to air out the rice for 10 minutes. After this, add the sesame oil to a non-stick frying pan and then cover the base of the pan with a thin layer of rice and cook over medium heat.

Right after, flip the nurungji after cooking for 15 minutes, and then sprinkle the sugar on the Korean treat.

Miyeok guk from "Goblin"

The fantasy K-Drama "Goblin" has it all. Gods, ghosts, and mouthwatering dishes. Notably, the female protagonist Ji Eun Tak (Kim Go Eun) made viewers famished while gobbling down miyeok guk on her birthday. 

Miyeok guk (aka seaweed soup) is a must-have dish for Koreans on their birthday. But it is mostly a hearty dish that can be enjoyed while watching your favorite K-Drama.


-15g dried seaweed

-120g beef chuck, sliced

-¼ tsp fine sea salt

-Black pepper

-1 tbsp sesame oil

-1½ tbsp soy sauce

-1 tsp minced garlic

To start things off, soak the dried seaweed in cold water for 10 minutes then throw out the water and wash the seaweed. Following this, squeeze the water out of the seaweed and cut it into strips. Set aside after.

Next, marinate the sliced beef chuck with salt and black pepper. Next, pour sesame oil and the seaweed, into a pot over medium heat. Add the beef next then stir fry until the dish is partially cooked. 

Not long after, one should add the soy sauce, garlic, and water. Bring the soup to a boil over medium-high heat, cooking for 15 minutes. Add salt to taste, accordingly.
