I dislike Korean food. Lots of things thrown together to make a crude amalgaration. Kimchee is offensive. Well at a decent korean restaurant you'll have up to a couple dozen small side dishes which makes things interesting, and a lot more than just kimchi. I think bibimbap is one of the more delicious ultra basic national dishes. I also like that koreans take a little more pride in the quality of their meat. The sesame oil and salt dip and all the other sauces that come with typical korean BBQ make it a little more interesting for me if I'm going to have a basic hearty meal.
