Hi SF,

No :) they are different. The one that i used in the picture is bought from Fairprice, and it look smaller and shorter, that why it gives you the impression that they are the same.

I used to buy from another Supermarket, they are much longer and bigger. It is quite commonly used in Korean Dishes, just don't know why it is not that popular here, it is really nice and yummy.

Maybe, next time, i should experiment with Soy Bean and grow them :) cheers
