Thanks! I'm not Korean, but I've lived here for the past 3 years. I may be able to help you out. Where are you located?

Sorry for taking so long! I'm not permanently located anywhere currently. When I was in Texas and Cali, I found a ton of supplies but none in the North currently. Thank you!

I know what you mean. I travel quite a bit myself. When you say 'North' do you mean the Washington/Oregon area?

I was in Washington and fell in love with the ease of finding and availability of sushi and certain ingredients for making some of my own treats, but as I've traveled east from there, the places that carry it have started becoming fewer, and the costs of said places' wares have been going up! (sometimes the quality of the foods there has taken a dive too, but it's very hit and miss T_T)

Why did you move to Korea? And where are you originally from? A while ago a friend of mine was supposed to go there and teach english, but she wound up getting married and moving to the american countryside instead, lol oh well :b

Our family moved to Korea when my dad was promoted to be the reigonal renewable energy expert for his company's Asian division. Family circumstances have recently led us to return to the U.S., but he still works in the wind and solar division of the company. I'm originally from the beautiful Seattle area, and that will always be home to me. :)
