This is ‘yut’ (엿) -well, technically this version is called ‘mool-yut’ (물엿: ‘water-yut’), the liquid version. Yut is made of rice and barley malt, and it is the most common traditional confectionary available in Korea. There are two types of yut: solid or liquid but the flavour and texture for both are very sweet and super sticky.
The Korean phrase ‘yut muk uh’ (eat yut) is used as an insult meaning ‘eat yut and lose your teeth (because yut sticks to your teeth)’. 😂😢🦷
