Cycle 14 – Item 134

In Korea, when consumed on the cob, the most common variety is waxy corn (see for example 12.208 The Third Score).
When used as an ingredient in dishes, it’s always sweet corn (see for example 13.050 Corn Cheese), which comes in cans.
But never vice-versa: sweet corn is not eaten on the cob, and waxy corn is not used in dishes – at least, not in my experience.
