We have fallen in love with the Korean culture with all its K-pop, K-drama, and oppas so much that traveling to Korea tops our travel bucket list. But did you guys know that Koreans love their food spicy? Not-so good news for fellow Filipinos who have been accustomed to sweet, sour, and salty, having taste buds that can't take the heat, at all. But good news, Candy Girls! You can fall in love with the Korean cuisine just as much you love K-pop because we're listing down the top 10 Korean dishes you must try that certainly won't burn your tongue.
