Korean: Noodles, Soon-tofu, other

Yongsusan
950 S. Vermont Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90005 (213) 388-3042
What a treat, multiple-small-dish Korean banquets with wonderful attention to detail. Stuffed "bosam kimchi" is famous but I also loved simple things like grilled scallops and fatty steamed pork. An essential LA restaurant.

Sokongdong
2716 W. Olympic Blvd #104, Koreatown 213-380-3737
Wonderful soon tofu/soft tofu stew and a spendid spicy raw crab dish. You'll want to extricate every morsel.

Ma Dang Gook So
869 S. Western Ave (213) 487-6008 K’town
Gook soo = handmade noodles in delicious variety of soups. One of J.Gold's favourites and rightly so.

Kang Seo Myun Oak
3033 W. 6th St., LA 213-382-1717 K’town
Naeng myun palace for lovers of the cold buckwheat noodle. Perfect for a hot summer's day or any other day for that matter.

BCD Tofu House
3575 Wilshire Blvd (@Kingsley, (213) 382-6677 K’town
Soon tofu house that's open late. Great quality and large panchan selection (side dishes, free) with grilled fish a highlight.

Kobawoo House
213-389-7300 698 S Vermont Ave #109 Los Angeles, K’town
Mungbean pancake of legend is well worth a trip. Also try the classic dol sot bibimbap in stone bowl with mountain vegetables.

Han Bat
4163 W. Fifth St., (213) 383-9499.
Who said this blog was a big waste of time? A commenter recommended this very good sul lung tang/beef soup place, and I really liked it. Essentially a one-item menu but the bone-milky soup is hearty and good, as attested by satisfied slurping throughout the room.

Jinju
610 S. Western Ave., (213) 383-6789 K’town
C rating when I went which has probably improved. Rib-sticking Korean hangover-cure soups with hearty flavour. 24hours? Check.

You forgot the infamous Hodori. 24/365 place that has pretty much anything you want at reasonable prices. I'd say go for the dol sat bim bim bap, personally. Their gook soo is pretty good, too.
