1. [+195, -8] That does not look appetizing at all

2. [+191, -15] Kimchi and waffles.. sounds terrible

3. [+189, -8] It's basically just taking the mix for kimchi jeon and grilling it in a waffle maker, no?

4. [+17, -0] That's kimchi jeon ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+13, -1] So it's kimchi jeon grilled in a waffle maker..

6. [+10, -1] So it's kimchi, green onions, and seafood mixed into a dough -> isn't that just kimchi jeon?

7. [+8, -1] That's just kimchi jeon in a waffle maker, no?

8. [+7, -0] So it looks like a waffle but it's basically just a thick kimchi jeon... That sounds delicious

9. [+7, -0] This is probably what Italians feel when they see what Koreans have done to their pizzas by adding sweet potatoes and pineapples to it. It's a bit off-putting for us Koreans to hear about Korean food in this way.

10. [+4, -0] It probably just tastes like kimchi buchimgae

11. [+4, -1] I don't think the guy took a literal waffle and put kimchi on it. I think the waffle mix is more like a kimchi jeon that was then cooked in a waffle maker. It looks crispy and delicious.

12. [+3, -1] Kimchi and plain bread is actually a tasty combo

13. [+3, -0] So they dip the waffle in ssamjang and eat it with makgeolli? That sounds a bit much..

14. [+3, -0] Just eat kimchi jeon...

15. [+2, -0] That's just kimchi buchimgae, no?? I know people get weird when you say flour and kimchi in the same sentence but it probably tastes like adding kimchi to ramen or jjapagetti
