1. What would we have eaten, if there had been no kimchi? In any ethnic group, or any nation, there is at least one food that identifies the cultural uniqueness of that nation. If one were asked to come up with a representive food for Koreans, it would have to be kimchi and a steamed rice bowl. Interestingly, these two very basic foods have to be put on Korean tables together to bring out the best flavor in both.
Thus, Koreans often say that without kimchi on the table, the stomach feels as if nothing had been eaten at all. This shows how integral kimchi is to Korean's daily lives.

2. It has been said that the ethnic characteristics of Koreans include perseverance. This trait is necessary when making our most important food - kimchi. The ripening period is the fermentation time needed to bring out the unique of flavor derived from the different ingredients mixed in an earthenware pot - usually made of clay and coated with sulfur - that are combined to make kimchi.
As has been mentioned, this process of making kimchi, which requires patience mirrors the endurance with which we go about our daily lives.

Furthermore, the color arising from the mix of kimchi's many different ingredients reflects the many words used for visual
perception in our language.

Koreans first taste kimchi with their eyes. Before there was red pepper powder to obtain a reddish color, our ancestors used natural extract. Now, to give kimchi its violet red, leaf mustard and cockscombs are often used , as is safflower extract. Thus, natural ingredients are utilized to stimulate one's appetite with colors; Bak-kimchi, which is white, has a refreshing taste, while richly seasoned Kimjang-kimchi, which is heavily seasoned with red pepper powder, has a sharp taste.
