For my second blog, I have created a video of some of my gustatory adventures in Korea. My initial blog idea was to make a longer video of different traditional Korean foods with a part on traditional summer foods. However, while making the video, I decided to make it shorter so that the viewers did not have to stare at head shots of me speaking for multiple songs. In the video, I focus on some of the Korean foods I had the pleasure of tasting during a day trip to Gwangjang Market with friends.
To contrast Samgyetang, I also wanted to mention Naengmyeon, iced Korean noodles. The wheat noodles are often very long and require cutting with scissors, normally provided by the restaurant. They are served in a cold, sweet broth with egg and vegetables along with shaved ice to keep the dish refreshing.
