This study is conducted to investigate the contents of ${\beta}$-carotene and retinol in bap (e.g. gimbap, bokkeumbap, sushi, deopbap, bibimbap), guk (e.g. sundaeguk, seonjiguk), tang (e.g. galbitang, chueotang), and jjigae (e.g. dongtaejjigae, kimchi jjigae with port) by using saponification extraction and HPLC analysis. The samples were collected from six regions in Korea (Gangwon-do, Gyeonggi-do, Gyeongsang-do, Seoul, Jeonla-do, Chuncheong-do). In bap, the ${\beta}$-carotene contents of kimchi gimbap (234.459~719.180 ${\mu}g/100g$), bibimbap (200.091~489.867 ${\mu}g/100g$) and pork deopbap (228.876~778.591 ${\mu}g/100g$) were higher than that of sushi (0.000~41.234 ${\mu}g/100g$), and jajangbap (4.833~28.141 ${\mu}g/100g$). The retinol contents of bap was 0.000~60.418 ${\mu}g/100g$, among which, omelet rice (13.974~60.418 ${\mu}g/100g$) showed the highest amount of retinol. Among the analyzed guk (tang) and jjigae, higher contents of ${\beta}$-carotene were observed in chueoutang (346.261~843.947 ${\mu}g/100g$), kimchi jjigae with pork (178.558~352.604 ${\mu}g/100g$) and altang (169.443~175.287 ${\mu}g/100g$). The retinol of guk (tang) and jjigae were not detected to doganitang, gomtang, naejangtang, chueotang and soy sprout haejangguk.
