We are very excited to introduce Nothyang to Gochujar!
Nothyang received distinction as one of "Korea Best Brands" for Traditional Yugi Brassware, consecutively in 2020 and 2021!
Their Yugi pieces have made appearances on popular Korean TV series and dramas like Itaewon Class, It's Okay To Not Be Okay, Private Lives, and 2 Days & 1 Night.
Each one of their Yugi piece is hand-made and meticulously hammered into shape, using traditional Korean methods.
Nothyang's pieces have a modern and minimal design to them, making them a favorite among Korean food stylists and restauranteurs.
If you're new to Yugi Brassware, we recommend starting with this Signature 1-Person Full Korean Yugi Set!
This full set includes 9 pieces - everything you need for a Hansik meal:
Rice Bowl (1), Rice Bowl Lid (1), Soup Bowl (1), Medium Banchan Plate (1), Small Banchan Plates (x2), Chopsticks (1), Spoon (1), Chopstick Holder (x1)
What distinguishes Korean Yugi (also known as Bangjja) from other types of brozenware is the alloy ratio between copper and tin.
Forging Yugi requires an exact ratio of 78% copper and 22% tin.
From this precise ratio, Yugi has a distinct golden sheen,that shines brighter over time (with repeated polishing).
In addition, Yugi kills and prevents viruses, bacteria and microorganisms from growing on its surface.
That's why Yugi pieces were used to serve the Korean Royal Family and Court.
In modern Korea,Yugi has come back into vogue - and is now regarded as a premium gift for newlyweds and housewarming events.
If you're new to Korean cooking or food styling, consider starting your collection with this beautiful 1-Person Full Set.
It'll make your Korean dishes look extra appetizing!
My mother has wanted a yugi set from Korea for some time, so my brothers and I were happy to find this thoughtfully curated set. It's so beautiful and handmade by master craftsman—the quality is exceptional. The shipping costs from Korea is always a concern, so couldn't have been more thrilled with Gochujar's incredibly accessible shipping rates. We were also impressed with Gochujar's top-notch customer service. They answered immediately and handled everything so smoothly!
I think the set is magnificent, and I use it every chance I get.

A look into Nothyang's Yugi making process (no sound)
1. Each piece is handmade
Nothyang makes each Yugi piece by hand - via manual processes
As a result, there may be subtle differences in size and look (i.e. minor scratches/blemishes/stains).
Note: These minor imperfections do not qualify the product as "damaged'.
2. DOn't use stainless steel scrubbers/wool
Instead, use a regular 3M Dishwashing Sponges when washing (use the dark-green, coarse side).
Or use Nothyang's Special Yugi Scrubs...
3. SOAK IN VINEGAR BEFORE FIRST USE!
Before first use, soak the Yugi in lukewarm water - with vinegar.
(Use a ratio of 2 Cups Water to 1 Tablespoon vinegar)
Soak it for 30 mins - 1 hour (not any longer).
Then rinse off, with soap & water.
Finally, dry it off completely with a towel.
4. I See STAINS On MY YUGI - what is this?
It's because the Yugi was stored with moisture on it (i.e. water droplets).
Remove the stain by scrubbing...
Use the backside of a dry 3M Dishwasher Sponge (the coarse, dark green side).
Or use Nothyang's Special Yugi Scrub.
Important: Both the Yugi Ware & the Scrub should be dry when scrubbing.
The stain will come off as a fine black powder.
Rinse it off with water and dry it off completely with a kitchen towel.
As you use (and clean) your Yugi ware more often - its golden sheen will get brighter!

Nothyang uses the most premium grade copper available in Korea
Korean Yugi is made by hammering a precise mix of exactly 78% Copper and 22% Tin
Yugi has self-sterilizing properties - it kills bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms.
It also retains temperatures well - plate hot foods and the dishes will stay hot.
Scoop-on cold foods, and the plates will stay cold!
FAQ ABOUT YUGI
A: No. If you use - and wash - your yugiware regularly, the golden sheen becomes brighter (assuming proper care).
Yes, you may smell a slight metallic smell from Yugi when you first use it.
(This is the smell of the copper - it's normal, and part of the break-in process)
To remove the smell, do the following steps:
1. Soak the Yugi in a mixture of hot water & vinegar (ratio mentioned above) for 10 minutes.
2. Then wash it with soap & a dish sponge - followed by a rinse under hot running water.
3. Place it back into the water & vinegar mixture for an additional 10 minutes.
4. Then scrub it again with soap & dish sponge - followed by a rinse under hot running water.
5. Then dry it off completely!
This should remove the smell.
But if you still smell a faint smell, don't worry...
After a few weeks of regular usage - and washing - it should disappear completely.
No, Yugi ware is for plating and serving only (not for cooking in heat).
Do not place it into the microwave or over any stovetop.
After washing the Yugi ware, dry it off completely with a kitchen towel.
There should be no wet spots - or moisture left - on the Yugi.
Please re-read the last section in the Product Notice Section (in our product page above).
The golden sheen never disappears. You just have to reveal it!
First - while it's dry - scrub-off any visible stains. Use the backside of 3M Kitchen Sponge (make sure the sponge is dry). You'll see the stain come off as a fine black powder.
Then fill a small pot with hot water. Add a few large splashes of vinegar and few pinches of baking soda (doesn't have to be exact). Let it rest in this mixture for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, rinse-off the Yugi. Then dry it off completely with a kitchen towel!
Note: If baking soda & vinegar isn't working too well. you can also soak the Yugiware in Tomato Juice (yes, it works!).
Fill a large pot (or other large container) with equal parts tomato juice & water (1:1 ratio). Soak the yugi in this tomato mixture for 30 minutes. Afterwards, wash it off with water and soap. Then rinse it off again and dry it off completely with a kitchen towel!
