탕&국수

Guk refers to soup-like dishes in Korean cuisine and is also called tang. Guk and tang are commonly group together and regarded as the same type of dish, although guk is more watery and a basic dish for the Korean table setting and usually eaten at home. On the other hand, tang has less water than guk and has been developed to commercially sell in restaurants. Korean noodles are noodles or noodle dishes in Korean cuisine and are collectively referred to as "guksu" in native Korean or "myeon" in hanja. Preparations and cooking with noodles are relatively simple, so the history is longer than that of bread, dating back around BCE 6000 to BCE 5000 in Asia.
