Where my Koreans at? Help with deep-fried dried Korean chile recipe

Hi y'all! I'm trying to re-create my favorite Korean snack. I don't know what it's called. It's basically dehydrated (dried) whole Korean chiles (gochu), that seem like they've been dredged in some kind of starch (rice flour?), then deep fried - not for immediate consumption necessarily, but shelf stable. The ones I had were lightly sweet and salty (sugar & soy sauce or salt seasoning the starch?). My mom brought back bags of them for me from Korea, so they're more like chips than frito misto, if that makes sense. They stay super crunchy and delicious in a bag with a dessicant - they don't get greasy or gross if you don't eat them right away. Does anyone know what this is called, or have any tips for me to make them at home? Thanks Chowhounders!
