You make kimchi or die!
Just as the Japanese love to watch foreigners make mochi, the Koreans love to watch us make kimchi. That's me with Jennifer, the other EPIK teacher in Jecheon, being guided in an ancient Confucian pre-pickling ritual known as parul son uro teolda (파를 손으로 털다).
These pictures are from the Jecheon Uibyeongje Civilian Army Cultural Festival.
We were actually at gunpoint in this photo.
Kimchi: it's what's for dinner. And breakfast. And lunch.
