In Korea, women who have just given birth receive a month of postnatal care and eat miyeok-guk. Dried seaweed is soaked in water and rehydrated and then simmered in clear beef or seafood broth. Seaweed is rich in calcium, which is an essential substance for the formation of bones and teeth, and iodine, which is an essential substance for the formation of thyroid hormones. Seaweed assists in womb contraction and prevents bleeding. Moreover, as one of the essential dishes of a person’s hundredth day, first birthday and subsequent birthdays, miyeok-guk is one of the ‘friendliest’ dishes and is handed down through the generations.
