Good Korean in Jackson Heights
haven't eaten there but did pass a new korean place, Friend's. Very simple, very inexpensive menu (ramen, kimbab, pajun, bibimbab, noodles, some chigaes, some drinking food).
Wasn't very packed but smelled quite nice in there (heavy kimchi smell). no grilling.

just walked by two places that I always forget exist, and never go into: Mi Dang on Broadway, just a block down from Hae Woon Dae (it is a chinese-korean joint) and also Sun Mi (on roosevelt, not sure if its a restaurant or a bar, just has a neon sign, no visible menu) which is down the block from Himalayan Yak, and past that large laundromat, around 72 or 71st St. It is next to what used to be that Burmese place which is now a pharmacy.
anyone eaten at either of these two places?
re: Joe MacBu
chung ki wa was not the good the last time I was there; Joe, you might be mixing it up with another place because the Chung Ki Wa I've been to is right on 73rd or 74th, practically under the 7 tracks. I'd stick with haewondae; both places are pretty low-key; I remember on some boards that there were some korean-menu only specialty places but I could never find them; they may have been overrun by all the newer cuisines that have hit that roosevelt intersection.
