More than 2,300 people gather at the 2014 Seoul Kimchi Making & Sharing Festival, joining a giant kimchi-making event at Seoul Plaza on November 14.

During this time of the year, families, their relatives and next-door neighbors sit around together and prepare kimchi, the range of seasoned vegetable dishes based around the cabbage.

The making and sharing of kimchi, known as kimjang, has been part of people's lives for many generations. Indeed, last year the practice of kimjang was inscribed on the list of UNESCO's intangible cultural heritage items.

Making kimchi is more than just following a recipe. It embraces the spirit of sharing and one's sense of identity and belonging to the community...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "10 Minutes"

2014/11/21 | | Permalink

Ho-chan (played by Baek Jong-hwan) takes a part-time job at an office and mulls over his future career choices. As cinematic plots goes this isn't exactly the most inspiring one, and the camerawork doesn't make "10 Minutes" feel any more epic than it sounds. Early on I couldn't help but think that "Incomplete Life", a webtoon, was adapted as a television drama for a reason. Office life is day by day stuff experienced in small doses...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Dear Dolphin"

2014/11/21 | | Permalink

Hyeok-geun (played by Lee Hee-joon) is a nurse in a long-term relationship with Cha-kyeong (played by Han Ye-ri).
