Preparation

Boil the cut asparagus for 3-5 minutes.
Drain and plunge into ice water.
Retain the water used to boil the asparagus.
Pour some of it over the miso paste in a seperate bowl.

Put this back on the gas and bring to a boil, then turn off the gas.

Recipe so vague. For ex. "A handful of asparagus - do you mean chopped or if one grabs stalks of asparagus? Big difference!

Then "Boil the cut asparagus for 3-5 minutes." Nothing is described about "cutting asparagus!"

Miso should not be boiled, yet this seems to be what is described.

Cooking directions don't make sense. And are vague and overly detailed

Example "Retain the water used to boil the asparagus.
Pour some of it over the miso paste in a seperate bowl.
Stir till the miso is dissolved and gives off a lovely brown color.
Add that back to the rest of asparagus water. IF THIS IS WHAT IS WANT'D WHY TAKE OUT SOME WATER, MIX WITH MISO, THEN ADD BACK TO THE REST OF ASPARAGUS WATER?

I could go on, but don't want to take more time . .

Finally, what makes this KOREAN?
