79 Kimbap (김밥)

Kimbap is often mistakenly introduced as 'Korean sushi'. Even though the Korean dish resembles the Japanese one and is said to be derived from Japanese norimaki, it sure is not a sushi. Japanese and Korean cuisines, despite few similarities (like rice being one of the most common ingredients), are much different.
