0019 Kimchi Wars

May 17, 2012, 09:00 PM, Chungcheongbuk-do, South Korea

Long ago, in a country far, far away (Korea) a pickled vegetable dish was born and it was called kimchi and its fans became legion. So legion, in fact, that 90% of kimchi production ended up being outsourced to China. Then one day parasite eggs were discovered in some Chinese kimchi and South Korea ordered the shipment destroyed. In a so there move, China discovered parasite eggs in some Korean kimchi and banned further Korean imports. Thus the kimchi wars began. Can two countries with a history of prickly relations work together on kimchi quality assurance? Kimchi lovers sure hope that talks can get them out of the pickle that this pickle has gotten them into. #ceas #hacker #korea #tsutsui
