People don’t pick up a dish in Korea. All dishes are on table and they pick up only small piece of food with chopstick or spoon. On the other hand, sometimes it can be bad manner in Japan.

Korean people don’t pick up even miso soup. I was surprised when I first saw it. They use spoon for drinking soup. I wrote that Japanese can eat their food without any tool except chopstick. Chopstick can pick up and cut, so I thought chopstick was all-round but it can’t scoop.

Usage of spoon depends on individual in Korea. Some people eat rice with spoon and some people with chopstick. In case of me, I use chopstick only except eating kinds of soup.
