A lot of people were 'impressed' with this. But actually, it's really simple to make. Just play around with your bread proofing time! ) 

Rabboki again as requested by the brother. He has been pestering me to make kimbap too. Well, I will when I'm not lazy. :P Check out my recipe index for the recipes!:)
