Eori-gul-jeot refers to a Korean traditional fermented dish made with salted oysters and hot pepper powder. The name of the dish is presumed to come from the Korean verb "eol-eol-ha-da" (to be spicy), which was modified into the prefix "eori-". Eori-gul-jeot earned nationwide fame after priest Muhak, charmed by the flavorful, piquant taste of the salted oysters, offered them to King Taejo. Since then, the dish has been considered a local specialty of Seosan City, South Chungcheong Province. Muhak is a great Buddhis priest who was the adviser to King Taejo, founder of the Joseon Dynasty (1392~1910)
