Salty, Natural & Addictive
[Sung Gyung] Seasoned Laver Flakes (Kimjaban)
Sung Gyung has been our go-to brand for Korean Laver.
It's no surprise that their Seasoned Laver Flakes (known as Kimjaban in Korean) tastes incredible as well! It remind us of that classic gim flavor from our childhood dosiraks. Sung Gyung harvests all of its laver during Korea's cold winter, when seaweed turns ripe and tastes its best. The seaweed are chopped into smaller strands and roasted at a high heat. The flakes come out with a crispy, extra-crunchy texture. It's then lightly seasoned with salt, sesame oil and a touch of sugar.
We love this Kimjaban because it doesn't taste too salty or sweet. Many brands put too much sugar or add too many other seasonings. Sung Gyung nailed the ratio between salty, sweet and the natural seaweed flavor.
When you're hungry, sprinkle a handful of these flakes over a bowl of steaming rice. Add-in a fried egg too if you like!
Tasty rice topping - it's a bit sweeter than some others that I've tried before. Ate mine simply, over rice with egg and kimchi.
Products came to NY quick, and were delicious. I use both the gochucaro and sung gyung all the time now
I love the flavor of roasted seaweed, especially accompanying it with rice. When I came across this product on Gochujar, it was a no brainer to order this and give it a try. I am so glad that I did! The seasoning isn't overly sweet, like other seasoned seaweed flakes or Furikake I had bought in the past. I'm not a fan of sweet and savory flavors, so this product works out perfectly for me. I will definitely be repurchasing this in the future and will make sure I order plenty for the whole family. I can see my nieces and nephews devouring this with their rice balls and 1 bag is not enough for them. Before I end my review, I would like to express my appreciation of Gochujar. My order came package very well in bubble wrap, not a ding to any of the products. International customers can be assure products will arrive safely and securely to your doorstep because I can attest to that! =) Also, the handwritten note from Daniel and Katie was a very nice touch and I can feel their sincerity. Gochujar will be my go-to place to shop for Korean pantry staples and I'm excited to see more new products being added. It is well worth the 2 weeks wait for international shipping.

How is Gim Made?
Korean Gim starts by harvesting edible seaweed (red algae) that grow around the rocks on the ocean floor. But not from any ocean! Gim is harvested specifically from the waters surrounding the Korean Peninsula, starting from late-December to mid-April.
The harvested seaweed is then finely chopped and mixed into a large vat of water - like a soup. The soup mixture is then scooped over rectangular bamboo mats. The water passes through the porous mat and a thin layer of seaweed mix is left behind. This thin layer is then baked at a high temperature (or sun-dried). Afterwards, it's seasoned with oil and salt and baked once more.
