Kimchi Day: How to make Whole Napa Cabbage Kimchi

MANILA, Philippines — With the dominance of Korean dramas on streaming platforms, many Korean food have become as popular as South Korea's actors and singers. 

Kimchi has arguably become synonymous to South Korea, that fermented vegetable dish that is included as a staple banchan (side dishes) in every Korean meal. Thanks to their prominent feature in countless hit Korean dramas and movies. 

The Korean Cultural Center held a Kimjang (Kimchi-making) workshop last November 29 to celebrate Kimchi Day, which falls on November 22 this year. 

“This unique Korean culture embodies the communal spirit of gathering with families and neighbors during the winter season, in sharing and supporting each other to make kimchi,” said Lee Eunhwa during her opening remarks.

Lee is the wife of the South Korean ambassador to the Philippines. She was joined by members of the ASEAN Ladies Foundation (ALF).
