Normally while I was in Korea I’m with my family for the new year,
but I haven’t been with my family for Korean holiday for 2 years…

Japchae is Korean stir-fry noodles with meat and vegetables.
Japchae (jabchae, chapchae) is a Korean dish made from sweet potato noodles (called dangmyeon), stir fried in sesame oil with various vegetables (typically thinly sliced carrots, onion, spinach, and mushrooms), sometimes served with beef, and flavoured with soy sauce, and sweetened with sugar. It is usually served garnished with sesame seeds and slivers of chili. It may be served either hot or cold.
This dish is served at Korean parties and special occasions, with seasonal vegetables added.
Japchae is most commonly served as a side dish, though it may be a main dish. It is often served on a bed of rice; together with rice it is known as japchae-bap (), bap (밥) meaning “rice.”
The name, japchae, comprises the two hanja words; jap (hangul: 잡, hanja: 雜, literally “mixed and stirred”) and chae (hangul: 채, hanja: 菜, literally “vegetables”). Therefore, japchae literally means “a mixture of vegetables.”
