A primer on Korean restaurants/cuisine in Los Angeles?

I don't mean to duplicate content that's in the "Korean food beyond BBQ" thread but I was hoping the more informed Chowhounders would be gracious enough to compile an informal guide to what major (or minor) styles of Korean restaurants you can find in LA?

It's a style of cuisine I've been very curious to learn more about but there seems to be such a plentitude in LA's diversity of offerings that it's hard to navigate. What I know so far (or think I know) includes (and I included the restaurants I know but I'm not remotely suggesting their exemplary for their genre):

Korean BBQ (ok, this is pretty easy)

Soon tofu (BCD, Beverly Soon)

Cold noodles (naengmyeon) (Corner Place)

Hot noodles (kalguksoo?) (Olympic Noodle)

Seafood + stew (like Ondal 2) (if there's a name for this style, I'd love to know)

And please, please, please add on!
