Craving tasty Korean food
I have been to Soot Bull Jeep, Woo Lae Oak, Pine Tree, and Seong, but looking for others. No, doesn't have to be just BBQ. Thanks!
There's loads of great information on Korean food on the Los Angeles Board. You can either scroll through the Board or, better yet, use the search function in the upper right-hand corner of the Main Board. Just go to the Main Board, type +Korean +"Los Angeles" in the search box, click on the Chew! button, and you'll have lots to read.

If you want a really easy way to try Korean for the first time try Woo lae Oak on La Cienega restaurant row (the Koreatown branch is a little more neighborhood oriented).
I like smaller family places but my friends swear by the place and I've never been disappointed. Reasonably priced, good service and some tasty dishes. My favorites: seafood scallion pancake, crab meat wrapped in spinach in a sort of 'cigar' and of course the standard marinted beef.
