Korean Deep Fried Seaweed Rolls stuffed with JapChae Noodle (KimMaRi)

Last month, a friend of mine introduced this Korean street food to me.  She bought a box of KimMaRi from her friend whom she knew online.  I had few bites, and loved the taste of it.  I tried searching online for the recipe, but unable to find one written in English.  I remembered the look and taste of KimMaRi, so I decided to give it a try on my own.   After my first attempt, my husband tried it and loved the taste.  He said it is very close to Korean Street Food “KimMaRi”.  A success!
