Traditional Korean Yugi, Full Starter Set
[Nothyang] 1 Person Full Yugi Set
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 products 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 Nothyang's Yugi piece is hand-made and meticulously polished into shape - using traditional Korean methods.
Nothyang's pieces have a modern yet traditional feel, making them a favorite brand 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.
Yugi requires an exact ratio of 78% copper and 22% tin.
From this precise ratio, Yugi achieves a golden sheen that radiates brighter over time (with repeated polishing).
Yugi also prevents viruses, bacteria and microorganisms from growing on its surface.
That's why Yugi ware was used to serve the Korean Royal Family and Court.
In modern times, Yugi ware has come back into vogue and often bought 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.

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.
Thank you for the opportunity to own such a beautiful thing with so much tradition.
Just received today and the sets are so pretty! Cannot wait to use. Packaging was amazing, shipping was fast and will be ordering again.

We provide a special Yugi Scrub for removing stains & polishing - for free!
Start with Coarse Scrub to remove stains
Use the front-side (red side)
Note: Scrub WITHOUT water - both the scrub & yugi piece should be dry
Finish with FINE scrub if stain is stubborn
Use the front-side (grey side)
Note: Scrub WITHOUT water - both the scrub & yugi piece should be dry
Each Piece is Handmade
Nothyang makes each Yugi piece by hand
As such, there may be a subtle difference in size, appearance or minor scratches/blemishes/stains.
These minor imperfections do not qualify as a damaged item.
Soak in Vinegar Before First Use
Before first use, soak the Yugi pieces in warm water with vinegar (any kind)
Use a ratio of 2 Cups of Water for every 1 Tablespoon Vinegar
Soak for a minimum of 30 mins up to 1 hour (not any longer)
Then rinse with soap and dry-off completely with a kitchen towel
This pre-step soaking helps to remove a slight metallic smell in new Yugi (only need to do once)
Yes, any leftover metallic smell will be gone after repeated usage & washing
Q: I see stains on my Yugi - why is this & how do I remove this?
Stains form when the Yugi pieces are stored away while not being completely dry (i.e water droplets).
Don't panic - it's completely normal and simply requires a round of polishing
Use the backside of a dry 3M Dishwasher Sponge (the coarse, dark green side)
Or use Nothyang's Yugi Wear Scrub
Place on a disposable glove and spread out a few newspapers (good tip)
Then remove the stain by scrubbing it - while it's dry
IMPORTANT: Both the Yugi piece & the Scrub should be DRY when scrubbing (no water!)
The stain will come off as a fine black powder
Shake-off the black powder onto the newspaper - then discard
We recommend polishing the entire Yugi piece (not just the stain) - as it helps to reveal it's natural golden sheen
Then rinse the Yugi piece with hot water & soap ... and dry-off completely with a kitchen towel
Don't use Stainless Steel Scrubbers/Wool
Instead, use a regular 3M Sponge when scrubbing-off stains - the dark-green, coarse side
(Or Nothyang's Special Yugi Scrubs)
For a more visual walk-through, watch the video below ...
Copper (78%) and Tin (22%) are melted together at a very high temperature to create a liquid alloy.
Following traditional thermal forging techniques, the alloy is rolled back & forth to reduce the porosity and increase the density of the material.
The alloy sheets are then pressed into different molds to create the general shape of a bowl, plate, or tableware
Each mold is measured for evenness, balance, uniformity and any blemishes. The best ones are selected for hand-processing.
Each piece is meticulously hand-polished until it is perfectly smooth with a golden sheen
Finally, each Yugi piece is tested to see if it possess anti-septic properties. If it passes, it is then offered to the general public for sale.
