In South Korea, kamaboko is called either eomuk (어묵) or odeng (오뎅). Eomuk can be boiled on a skewer in broth, and it is often sold on the streets of Korea. They can be eaten with alcoholic beverages, especially soju, similar to the function of hot dog stands in other countries. The broth is sometimes given to the customer in paper cups for dipping and drinking. An alternate preparation is called Hot-Bar, which is a deep-fried variation. It consists of eomuk along with various vegetables, served with different kinds of sauces or condiments such as ketchup. Eomuk is different from kamaboko.
