P'atpingsu (팥氷水)

Summer in Korea means the "traditional shaved ice dessert topped with sweet red azuki beans" pictured above — Icy, sweet summertime tradition. Park Hae-jin, quoted in the article, says it best, "The ice shavings in patbingsu give me a different feeling of fullness compared to other sweet desserts - it makes me full in a delightfully light way, because it tastes so refreshing."

A very similar dish, 小豆アイス, is very popular in Japan as well.
