Korean (or maybe Russian?) Carrot Salad

When I went to put together my sweet #Korean lentils with potatoes and #carrots meal, I Googled "Korean carrots" and found a few "Korean Carrot Salad" recipes, but I think the recipes are actually #Russian and that Russians just call the dish Korean carrot salad.

I'm confused, but I went with it and it turned out a'ight.
