Why Eel's a Hit in Korea:

First off, eels are packed with protein and nutrients, making them a real health boost. They're loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and amino acids, which are great for your heart health and boosting your immune system. Plus, they're low in fat and high in protein, making them a smart choice for anyone watching their diet or hitting the gym. And let's not forget their delicious taste! The Sunchang Japonica variety has this awesome chewy texture and clean flavor that's just irresistible. You can cook it up in all sorts of ways and still savor that incredible taste.

But wait, there's more! There's this old tale that eels can rev up men's sexual performance. With all those amino acids like arginine and thiamine, they're said to help widen blood vessels and get that blood flowing, which could definitely have a positive effect down there. And get this – there's even a myth that eating eel tails can boost fertility. Now, while the science might not fully back that up yet, it sure makes for an interesting story!

The Superiority of Native Japonica Eel:

Now, when we talk about "Japonica eel," we're talking about a special breed that's a source of pride in Korea. These babies, scientifically known as Anguilla japonica, have this cool bluish-green body, white belly, and a snout that's longer than your average eel. You'll find them mainly in East Asia, especially Korea and Japan, and they're known for that signature chewy, savory taste. Japonica eels are highly prized for their exceptional flavor. These eels are raised in big tanks where they get to swim around for over a year, which gives them this awesome muscle mass and texture that's just right. Compared to other imported eels, they're not as oily and have this really clean taste. In Korea, there are two types – Type 1 Japonica and Type 2 Bicolor and Malamorata. Japonica, being the native variety, costs a pretty penny – like 30 to 40 times more – but trust me, it's worth every cent for that amazing taste and quality.
