[ A message from Ambassador Lee Soo Hyuck on the recent shooting incidents in Atlanta ]

I would like to express my deepest condolences to the victims of the tragic shootings that took place on March 16 in the Atlanta Metropolitan area and extend deepest sympathies to the families who lost their loved ones.

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea will join the U.S. government's plan to fly its national flag at half-staff at all public buildings in honor of the victims. Accordingly, the flag of the Republic of Korea at the embassy buildings will be flown at half-staff until March 22.

Regardless of whether these tragic incidents were motivated by racial hatred or not, I would like to offer my sincere sympathies to all Korean-Americans and Asian-American communities in the United States distressed by this tragedy.

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea strongly condemns anti-Asian hate crimes which have increased recently, and reaffirms its support for all the efforts to uphold values of diversity, mutual respect and co-existence. The Embassy will continue to make every effort to protect Koreans from hate crimes in cooperation with the law enforcement authorities of the United States.

Korean Cultural Center in Washington, DC

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. (KCCDC) proudly presents the second installment in The Kimchi Universe Series, featuring a kimchi-making workshop led by chef, restauranteur, and kimchi connoisseur Judy Joo as she guides everyday home chefs in preparing Korea’s iconic cabbage side dish.

The 12-minute lesson is designed to be easy to follow for anyone interested in Korean cuisine, using mostly everyday equipment and ingredients. In the video, four groups share their initial trips to the grocery store, preparation of their kimchi at home in a live video session with Joo, and finally a follow-up to taste the fermented, delicious results.

Judy Joo is a Korean-American executive chef, restaurateur, and TV Chef. She appears on the Cooking Channel and Food Network worldwide with her show Korean Food Made Simple as she explores authentic Korean dishes inspired by her travels showing just how easy it is to make Korean favorites using a few key store cupboard ingredients. Her love of Korean food began as a child at home in the U.S. She is the author of Korean Food Made Simple and Judy Joo's Korean Soul Food (text courtesy of www.judyjoo.com).

After initially working in finance in New York City, Joo transitioned to a career in food. She attended The French Culinary Institute and graduated at the top of her class before working at Saveur magazine and Slow Food USA. She went on to compete on Iron Chef UK in 2010 and to work in some of London’s most notable restaurants, eventually opening her own, Jinjuu in Soho. Today she is an in-demand TV personality and food commentator.

Part 2: Make Your Kimchi premieres on March 15 on the Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. website and social media platforms (YouTube and Facebook: @Koreaculturedc). Part 1: Know Your Kimchi is available now, and Part 3: Beyond Kimchi will air in April 2021.

About the Series and Kimchi

The Kimchi Universe Series, which launched in February 2021 with Part 1, places kimchi firmly within the rich context of Korean culture while branching out to explore how non-Koreans are increasingly experiencing this unique fermented dish. Episodes include interviews with experts, tastings with everyday people, and workshops with kimchi creators in a short film, documentary style. Part 1 focuses on the theme of people trying various kimchi varieties and their authentic reactions, Part 2 dives into the age-old practice of making kimchi, and Part 3 explores the expanding world of kimchi beyond the traditional.

Kimchi has entered the global lexicon as an icon of Korean cuisine in recent years. Yet few people grasp the breadth and depth of kimchi culture, including its hundreds of variations, historical roots, and health benefits. But perhaps kimchi’s most notable contribution to Korean culture is its role in collective social culture and regional identity. The Kimchi Universe Series is designed to welcome international viewers inside this rich culinary tradition.

K-Art at Home: Robin Ha, is now LIVE!

Ha features highlighted scenes from two of Ha's original and vivid graphic novels: Cook Korean! and Almost American Girl, plus a recorded talk by the artist offering an inside look at her creative themes, processes, and inspirations.
To view the exhibition and talk, please visit http://washingtondc.korean-culture.org/en/1126/board/890/read/106797

Cook Korean! (2016) is a unique combination of a Korean cookbook containing 64 recipes and a light graphic novel, presented through the medium of colorful and playful comics that weave together a culinary story. In this New York Times bestseller, Ha richly illustrates the creation of popular Korean daily cuisine, including kimchi (fermented vegetables), bulgogi (grilled meats) and gimbap (rolled seaweed sheets and rice), in her own colorful and humorous way. By design, readers can easily understand the ingredients and cooking processes in order to adapt the recipes for their own homes.

Almost American Girl (2020) is a graphic novel memoir about Ha's life transition from Korea to America and the struggle to find a new identity amid a sea of cultural change. Ha shares not only her personal experiences, including the bond between mother and daughter, but insights into how she navigated a new landscape of cultural diversity in search of her ethnic identity as Korean American. Almost American Girl was selected as a Walter Honor Book by the Walter Awards in 2021.

Robin Ha (She/her) is a Korean American cartoonist based in Washington DC. She is the author and the illustrator of Almost American Girl, a 2021 Walter Award honoree memoir, and Cook Korean!: A Comic Book With Recipes, a New York Times bestselling cookbook graphic novel. Robin Ha grew up reading and drawing comics in Seoul, South Korea, and moved to the United States at age fourteen. After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, she moved to New York City and worked in the fashion industry for several years before diving into comics. Her work has been published in independent comic anthologies as well as in the pages of Marvel Comics and Heavy Metal Magazine. She is currently working on her third graphic novel inspired by the Korean folklore of Gumiho.

Korea's national side dish takes center stage in The Kimchi Universe Series

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. (KCCDC) proudly presents The Kimchi Universe Series, a new three-part video series exploring Korea's iconic and quintessential food, Kimchi. The series launches on February 12 with the release of Part 1: Know Your Kimchi in celebration of the Korean Lunar New Year holiday, Seollal, which falls on the same day.

The series places kimchi firmly within the rich context of Korean culture, while also branching out to explore how non-Koreans are increasingly experiencing this unique fermented dish. Episodes include interviews with experts, tastings with everyday people, and workshops with kimchi creators in a short film documentary-style format. Part 1 focuses on the theme of people trying various kimchi varieties and their authentic reactions, Part 2 dives into the age old practice of making kimchi, and Part 3 explores the expanding world of kimchi beyond the traditional.

While kimchi has entered the global lexicon as an icon of Korean cuisine, few people grasp the breadth and depth of kimchi culture, including its hundred of variations, historical roots, health benefits, and notably its roles in collective social culture and regional identity.

Seollal, the first day of the traditional lunar calendar on which Part 1 launches, is one of Korea's most important traditional holidays and aligns closely with traditional Korean cuisine such as kimchi. Over the course of three days, it is a time for Korean families to reconnect and enjoy traditional foods and recreation together.

The Kimchi Universe Series launches on February 12 with Part 1: Know Your Kimchi available on the Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. website and social media platforms. Parts 2 and 3 will soon follow, airing in March and April respectively.
