Extraordinary Attorney Woo is only halfway through the series, but it continues breaking its own record streak, achieving the highest ratings ever on its cable channel. The drama has been the talk of the town as the story unfolds about Woo Young Woo, a genius lawyer with autism spectrum disorder and the unique cases she takes on.

As the literal meaning of the name of the show in Korean is ‘strange’ rather than ‘extraordinary’, even her kimbap is strangely shaped and “strangely good” as the characters mention in the drama. *Minor spoilers ahead*: In episode 8, Woo Young Woo sleeps over at her best friend’s Dong Geu Ra Mi’s house and the latter makes her some kimbap for breakfast.

You can check out this clip to refresh your memory:

Throughout the show, Woo Young Woo is seen eating kimbap (seaweed rice rolls) as she likes how she can see all the ingredients of the dish as someone with autism spectrum disorder usually doesn’t like trying new things.

Dong Geu Ra Mi’s kimbap is made rather unusually as it is square shaped rather than rolled up. We checked out this Korean blogger’s recipe so read on for the full steps on how to make it yourself.

Dong Geu Ra Mi’s Kimbap Recipe

Serves: 2

A little cooking oil
1 bowl of rice
2 sheets of kimbab gim (laver)
2 eggs Chopped kimchi
4 tablespoons Canned tuna
4 tablespoons Sugar
1 tablespoons Sliced cheese

For rice seasoning,
3-4 pinches of salt
Sesame oil
1 tablespoon
Cling wrap


Put 1-1.5 tbsp of cooking oil to a frying pan. Add 4 tbsp of chopped kimchi, 4 tbsp tuna, 1 tbsp sugar and stir fry it together for 2-3 minutes on low heat.

For 1 rice ball: you need ½ bowl of rice. Add a bit of salt to the rice and sesame oil to season

To make fried eggs: fry perfectly round eggs if possible, use an egg pan or stainless-steel egg rings if you have them.

Prepare the fried eggs, fried kimchi tuna and sliced cheese to make a complete kimbap.

To make the kimbap: put the laver on the cutting board and cut it 4 ways, taking special care to leave out the centre bit.

Put the seasoned rice on the bottom halves.

On the top left side, place a fried egg and on the opposite side, place a piece of sliced cheese and fried kimchi tuna on top. Make sure to put the fried kimchi tuna on the laver with cheese first as the laver may tear otherwise.

Fold it one by one as pictured. Folding it in order makes the kimbap firm and makes sure the ingredients doesn’t fall out easily.

Eating it this way is difficult and the filling can spill out. Wrap the kimbap with plastic wrap tightly so it looks a bit rounder and cut it in half.

Your Dong Geu Ra Mi kimbap is complete!

Sounds so simple but good. We can’t wait to try it out for ourselves and eat it as we watch the next episode of the drama!
