Let’s enjoy Jap Chae!
Koreans have served japchae (stir-fried glass noodles and vegetables) at joyous occasions, such as feasts and banquets. From the past, japchae (stir-fried glass noodles and vegetables) has been considered to be classy and
fancy for banquets.
Japchae is one of the representative banquet cuisines in Korea, which is served hot after seasoning boiled dangmyeon (transparent sweet potato noodles), spinach, carrots, mushrooms, meet, onion, and other ingredients together.
Japchae (stir-fried glass noodles and vegetables) was first made in the early 17th century during the reign of King Gwanghaegun in the Joseon Dynasty. When King Gwanghaegun had hosted big parties at the palace, one of his liege men, Yi Chung, had often dedicated special dishes to please the king. The historical record says that King Gwanghaegun liked those dishes so much that he did not started eating any food, until the dishes from Yi Chung’s house were put on the table. Among those, japchae (stir-fried glass noodles and vegetables) was the one to capture the king’s taste buds.
