1.  Samgyeopsal (especially the galbi - not sure if its still called samgyeopsal then... cause samgyeopsal means three layered skin or something like that)
2.  Dolsot bibimbap
3.  Bokkeumbap
4.  japchae
5. buldalk (spicy chicken)

I saw an article in the Korea Herald a while back, it listed tteokbokki as the number 1 streetfood for foreigners in korea...

That's a Korean Herald article I can believe.

Anyone else notice that Korean street food is VERY limited in variety (sure there's the rare exception, but...)

The top 4 things in that article amount to 90%.  Compare ddeokbokki with the other items.

dak-kkochi-Not as common as others, but good decent.
Soondae-Fairly bland stuff.
Fritters-Stuff that just sits out and gets fried multiple times (with little care, unlike Korean chicken which is twice-fried for a reason.)
C is for cookie, that's good enough for me.

No, it wouldn't be called samgyupsal, you'd just call it galbi. Samgyeopsal refers to fatty pork belly, and you're right, it can be translated as three layered meat.

Actually, I think you spelled it right -- you mean the rice cakes that Koreans usually eat during Chuseok, right? I like them, too.
