ZenKimchi tweeted a link to this article – What’s the point of kimchi? yesterday. Roboseyo wrote a long and thoughtful blog entry about his reaction to the article, which I agree with and read belatedly (after getting irritated and commenting on the original article).
I won’t re-post the article in question here, as you can follow the link if you’d like to read it. Here is the article summary.
Korea’s national dish comes in 187 varieties – which is precisely 187 fermented vegetable pickles too many, says Rachel Cooke
Really? Although I resisted, I ended up posting a response in the article comments. If you want to read what I had to say. Follow this link.
I can’t help wondering how this article qualifies as good journalism – or even good writing. =/
