Jaecheop-guk (재첩국) is a clear guk (soup) made with jaecheop, small freshwater marsh clams native to Korea.[1] The soup is considered a local specialty of Yeongnam and Honam regions, where jaecheop are harvested in the lower reaches of Nakdong River and Seomjin River.[2][3]

Chopped garlic chives or silpa (thread scallions) along with minced garlic is typically added at the end of the cooking process.[4] The soup is usually seasoned with salt and eaten as a hangover soup. It is also available as a packaged product.
