Marine plants are receiving great attention as healthy food because they are rich in alginic acid, dietary fiber, and other nutrients effective in treating adult diseases. One of these marine plants, sea mustard, abounds with zinc, calcium, iron, and iodine. Koreans enjoy it in different ways but the most popular is to make it into soup called “miyeok-guk.” Many restaurants serve it and many people cook it at home because the recipe is simple, the taste is delicious, and you do not have to worry about too many calories. Miyeok-guk is also popular as a health food. In fact, it has been used in postnatal care in Korea since old times.

Chu often makes Korean food for her Chinese husband and Wu enjoys eating it very much. His favorite is seaweed soup. In one episode, he gulped down a whole pot of miyeok-guk at once, saying, “This is so delicious.”
