Mix the soy sauce and sugar in a bowl.
Grill the square rice cakes on low heat on a net placed over the stove burner, or sear them in a frying pan on low heat. After they change color, grill (or sear) the opposite side.
When done, dip the rice cakes into the bowl and coat both sides with the soy sauce/sugar mixture.
Hold each rice cake with chopsticks or tongs and place one piece of dried laver around each rice cake.
This is a popular and simple recipe. The taste of grilled rice cakes, dried laver and sweetened soy sauce together is very good!
