In addition to the words above, the OED added 8 words all related to Korean cuisine! These are banchan* (side dishes), bulgogi (thin beef or pork), chimaek *(fried chicken served with beer), dongchimi (a type of kimchi made with radishes), galbi (beef short ribs), japchae (noodles), kimbap (rice and other ingredients wrapped in seaweed), and samgyeopsal (pork belly). Hungry yet? We definitely are!


*I've marked the 10 new entries to the OED with an asterisk based on this source:

한국에서만 사용하는 호칭인 ‘noona( 누나 )’, ‘oppa( 오빠 )’, ‘unni( 언니 )’도 주목할 만하다. 우리가 일상 속에서 자주 사용하는 ‘daebak( 대박 )’, ‘aegyo( 애교 )’, ‘banchan( 반찬 )’, ‘chimaek( 치맥 )’, ‘fighting( 파이팅 )’, ‘skinship( 스킨십 )’, ‘trot( 트로트 )’와 같은 단어도 다수 추가됐다. 옥스퍼드 영어사전에 새롭게 추가된 한국어 단어 26 개는 다음과 같다.

These sources look like Korean blogs, So nothing official here, I don't have access to the OED.
