We have some important economic news out of South Korea now. The country is running a deficit of kimchi. The fermented cabbage dish plays a huge part in Korea's national identity.

But now, unbeknownst to many eaters there, Korea is being forced to import increasing amounts of kimchi from its rival, China. This is causing quite a stir in Seoul, where our next guest lives.
