Let me just say first, I am not Korean. But I enjoy Korean food and in the past 2-3 years I have been trying out various popular Korean dishes to satisfy my own cravings after watching K-dramas and other shows. One such show that I had been watching was "Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village". Boy, did that show get me hungry!
I always made it a point NOT to watch it at night as I was always so tempted to eat together with them; the food that Cha Seung Won cooked in the show looked so good! 6-7 episodes in, I noticed that one type of kimchi was always on the dinner table for the guys in the show - Radish Kimchi or kkadugi. I attempted to make my own radish kimchi, roughly based on how it was made in the show and it came out pretty tasty. Since then, I would prepare a batch of this crunchy kimchi once every 2 months or so and keep it in the fridge for me to indulge in whenever I feel like it. The recipe might not be the most authentic but it really makes for a mouth-watering appetiser and welcome addition to the dinner table.
The measurement for fish sauce is not exact; this is because you need to taste the mixture before deciding if you would prefer it to be saltier according to your personal preferences. Prepare a pair of gloves for use when you toss everything together.
