Thank you for showing the Chinese characters. Good people of Duolingo, please do not do not do not downvote this user. The Chinese characters help us understand the meaning of the Korean words and they also help us remember the Korean words. Without Chinese characters, Korean would be unlearnable for me. Even if the Chinese characters do not help you specifically, they may help many other people.

Why ignore 에. 어디에 있어요

more often than not the 에 gets dropped in 어디에, it's implied.

주방하고 부엌이 무슨 차이가 있어요? Could someone please explain what the difference is between the two Korean words for kitchen?

주방 is more modern than 부엌

That's probably why my mom, a Korean immigrant, uses 부엌

주 ju is from Chinese 厨 (chu2), which refers to cooking
