Dear Korean Textbook,
I'm a Korean-American from Fresno who's spending a year teaching English in Haenam county. I like to eat Korean food, but in Jeollanam-do there's not much variety besides kimbap and kimchi. Do you have any recommendations to break up the monotony? Thanks!

Dear Hungry in Haenam,
I often hear my friends say they don't like kimchi. But that's unbelievable. Remember, kimchi is our traditional food. And it's a key to maintaining good health. If we Koreans don't like to eat kimchi, who will? No one will. Then kimchi will die away. Would you be pleased with that? It's time we stopped throwing away our traditional pride. So, let's say to ourselves "There's nothing I like more than kimchi," and eat kimchi every day. Thank you.
