You left out the eating! If you are sad, you have comfort food. If you are happy you eat to celebrate. If you are in love, you go out to eat with him/her. You cook for him/her.
I watch K-Dramas on Netflix, and the number of times I have to pause and go research the latest food mention. As a result I got so curious, I bought the ingredients and made: Tteok Bokki, Sundubu Jiggae, Kimchi Jiggae, Rameon. As I am a vegetarian, this involved some substitutions, but overall I really liked the intense, salty/sour savoury and non-sugared taste. I have eaten out and had Bibimbap and Sundubu Jiggae. None of the BBQ dishes of course.
Oh, and I am now an official kimchi addict. One of these days, I will have a go at making it.
It has been fun and educational.
