Kimchi is so quintessential Korean that many can not imagine Korea with out the fermented dish. However, when one says kimchi, most of us will think of one particular kimchi: baechu kimchi (배추 김치). Two ago I made it myself for the first time using an adapted recipe given to me.
K-Dramas and I just do not mix well. I just cannot see their appeal, but three days ago I discovered the first drama I could not stop watching, Dear My Friends. Dear My friends is details the story of elderly Koreans and what begins with a laugh ends with a tear.
Learning Korean on your own is a very exciting experience, but sometimes you really need someone to answer your questions. Luckily the Korean Cultural Center organizes several Korean classes each year and this year I attended. Yesterday was my first year Korean graduation ceremony.
