      Full day at the 2008 Gwangju Kimchi Festival.
 Traditionally Kimchi is made in the latter part of the
 year and is stored in large earthenware pots where
   the fermenting takes place. It is said that when a
young man brings his lady home to meet the family,
     she is asked to prepare Kimchi and if it is to the
     satisfaction of the young mans’ mother then the
  lady in question is accepted into the family. There
                    are some 160 varieties of Kimchi.
