It’s the holiday season now and many people are either on vacation already or prepping for their next trip during this time. One of the popular destinations that Malaysians love to visit would be Seoul, South Korea for its cool fashion trends, handsome oppas and yummy food.

While we have loads of Korean snacks and restaurants here already, there is actually still a huge plethora of food that we probably haven’t tried before. So, if you’re heading there anytime soon, get your hands on these snacks to take home as souvenirs (or just for your own personal stash) and get ready to indulge in all that snacking. Some of these may be available in Malaysia but trust us, it’s way cheaper there especially if you’re buying a lot!
