I am going to South Korea. There is any danger when eating because of the radiation from Japan?

    Nil. The only thing you need to worry about is blazingly hot chillies and bad breath from too much garlic! about 5 years ago

    Eating is extremely safe in Korea... I even went overboard and had puffer fish.. Well I'm still alive! So yeah, nothing to worry about about 5 years ago

    Yes, no problem. The government, as far as I know, is still testing for possible radiation poisoning in the waters in SK and has issued no warning to date. Like Original Nomad said - only thing you need to watch out for is the chillis. about 5 years ago

    I agree about the chillies! My girlfriend's family slipped the into my meal, much to my digestion's dismay. Also, some insects are commonly eaten as finger food and may appear to be pecan. Just saying. about 5 years ago

    Almost everything is SAFE to eat, but don't recommend eating raw seafood during summer months. (June- Aug)

    Enjoy ROK!!

    I never once got food poisoning while I was in South Korea (for 2.5 years), although I had one or two friends who weren't so lucky.

    It's the same as anywhere else though. Don't eat anything you buy from the street if the seller looks a little dodgy and you'll be right. about 5 years ago
