korean food / seoul / Kimchi stew for the soul, you’re so moved – 1725

The <영혼을 위한 닭고기 스프> chicken soup that appears in the book is a folk remedy handed down from ancient times in the US, and is a traditional food made by grandmothers and mothers when they have body aches and colds. The same goes for kimchi stew in Korea. It is the soul food that Koreans seek first when traveling abroad for a long time or when they are sick. If you put thick slices of pork in a pack of ripe kimchi and cook it slowly, you can create a friendly yet deep flavor without any seasoning. The sharp soup can be rolled up with rice or eaten with ramen sari.
