We are having about 30 people over for an authenitic Korean dinner. i shouldnt admit this on this board but I am having it all catered. My mother in law uses this cute little Korean Grocery store and it tastes just like hers. Any way, I need to think of a dessert to serve after spicy asian food. She often just serves asian pears but I want a little more than that

I don't know much about Korean food, so I can't offer suggestions, but since it's going to be an authentic meal, is there something traditionally served at the end of a Korean dinner, even if not "dessert" as we know it?
But if the idea is to serve a course recognizable as dessert to your guests, I would go with something simple like sorbet, mango ice-cream, etc. I would also pass platters of mochi.

I don't know why, but I love anything lemon flavored after asian foods, so my choice would be a lemon sorbet or ice cream!

I would say the same as others - something creamy, citrusy, clean-tasting. You could do a sorbet (pineapple, lemon), or how about a lemon tart or key lime pie?
Kimchee - of course. Just kidding - I'm not very familiar with Korean desserts but a citrus or tropical fruit sorbet sounds good. I have been served a type of sweet rice pudding after a couple Korean meals but don't know if that is a traditional or Americanized dessert. Having a meal catered sounds like a lovely, relaxing evening to me. Enjoy.
