Fool's gold for Korean fare

I'm intrigued by the sheer number of Korean restaurants in Singapore and am always open to try a new place as long as it's considered authentic Korean fare. I tried Sodam based on exceptional reviews but was disappointed with the entire experience. In a word, this place is soul-less. The environment, albeit clean and modern, is cold and uncomfortable. The banchan was average. I was pleased to see kimchee jun as a banchan and this tasted OK. The kimchee alone, though, was simply awful and tasted and looked like it was mass-produced without any care for taste and aesthetics. My guests had both the unseasoned and seasoned galbi but this was cooked in the kitchen and most likely not on charcoal. It was more expensive than other nice Korean restaurants, over-cooked (for our liking) and tasted average. The accompanying ssam (lettuce) was not Korean ssam which is more delicate, soft and bouncy. The lettuce here is what you would buy in any grocery story - crispy and tasteless. The bibim naengmyun was far below average. The noodles were exactly the same as what could be purchased in any Korean grocery story and the portion was tiny. The soondooboo jigae was also disappointing. Nothing special or "soon" about the tofu. On top of the below average food, the restaurant doesn't have anyone who can speak Korean. It doesn't provide hot Korean barley tea and the pottery is not even Korean.
I am often asked about my favorite Korean restaurant in Singapore and, after 8 years of trying various recommended places, I can unequivocally recommend Chang Korean BBQ in Dempsey. It is authentic but has some unique dishes and has excellent Korean-style service.
