Translation:Seaweed and rice
Laver is a word used in Wales, but apparently not known in the UK, and not at all in the US.
Here is a description of laverbread from the laverbread.com website:
Laverbread, or bara lawr in Welsh, is a traditional Welsh delicacy, mainly found clinging to exposed rocks and is harvested on the West Coast of the British Isles and Southern Ireland. After being gathered, the seaweed is thoroughly washed and cooked until it becomes soft. It is then minced to convert it into a thick black/green paste like texture.
In the early 19th century, laverbread, bacon, mushrooms and sausages became a staple breakfast for hard-working Welsh pitmen who needed plenty of energy. Even today, hotel guests across Wales are often greeted with the traditional Welsh breakfast with laverbread and cockles (bara lawr a chocos), another Welsh delicacy harvested from the Gower coastline. Welsh chefs also use laverbread in other recipes that include lamb with laver pesto, laver ravioli, black risotto, laverbread Dahl and sauces for canapés. Laver is also a delicacy in Japan where it is mainly used for sushi meals.

Their description of a recipe that uses laver:
Once described as 'Welshman's caviar' by Richard Burton, laverbread is a Welsh delicacy which is essentially a seaweed paste rolled in oatmeal and fried. Alyn Williams uses laverbread to fill homemade ravioli in this sophisticated recipe. Replace the Welsh sea vegetables with regular samphire if you can't get hold of them.
From Wikipedia :

Laver as food is also commonly found around the west coast of Great Britain and east coast of Ireland along the Irish Sea, where it is also known as slake.
Are there are Welsh students of Korean who can confirm this?
"laver" is not at all common where I am from. And it's also not the answer. It would make more sense to change the answer to "seaweed sheets".
If I want to go buy some online I simply type "seaweed sheets". BAM lots there.
If I type "Laver" I get some gross concoction of bread and seaweed poping up. This is not at all what people mean when the eat kim and bob.
Sheets of seaweed. Usually cut into squares. Or even small strips. And eaten with rice. You can make little rolls of them or pockets with rice inside.
Reference: My wife is korean, my kids are korean, and I lived in South Korea for 4 years.
