The Best Kimchi Refrigerators: We Review the Top Brands

17 different types of kimchi

So I’ve been in Korea for over 8 years now. Time really flies. One of the things I had to really get used to after getting married, was the smell of kimchi all throughout our refrigerator. Before I married Hyo and lived alone, there was zero kimchi in my refrigerator. Now, it is full of kimchi which Hyo’s mom brings to our house every month. Hyo loves that I’m not particularly fond of kimchi because it means she can eat it all.

We would love to have a kimchi fridge in our house, however we just don’t have the space right now as we recently moved into a slightly smaller place to be closer to her dad. Hyo really wants one though as most Koreans find them necessary and useful.

Episode #74: Giving Up Chocolate?

 

Disclaimer: Yes, I know all Koreans don’t like kimchi. But in Hyo’s case, kimchi is to her, what chocolate/PB is to me. She doesn’t like PB and is not overly fond of chocolate. I don’t eat kimchi (except Bossam Kimchi). We are both very adamant that we will like each other’s favorite food at some point down the road.

17 different types of kimchi

So Jessica over at The Traveling Kimchi gave me the idea for this graphic. Thanks again!

Making this was…interesting…because I know this is a daily part of Korean life and it would be good info, but….I don’t like kimchi. I’ve lived in Korea for 5 years and I still don’t like it. I always have to stand my ground at lunchtime at my school when other teachers might (kind of annoyingly) ask why I didn’t put kimchi on my tray (mostly happened my first year here though).

Maybe it will grow on my one day. I didn’t like mushrooms a few years ago and now I love them. Hyo is confident my taste will change in the future.
