Kimjang, the making and sharing large quantities of kimchi (fermented cabbage) ahead of the
long winter months to come, is an essential part of Korean culture. Despite
being centered around kimchi, this practice has never been limited to just food preparation.
Kimjang is more of a ceremony, bringing family members together, promoting cooperation among members of society and sharing with the less fortunate. This provides a sense of identity and unity, enhancing ties among different communities.
