Last November 25, 2012 I have a chances to watch SBS INKIGAYO since i get the Free ticket from KTO. I was watched together with other K-Performance supporter in SBS Studio 3rd floor (SBS located in the Digital media city seoul).  This time i was departed late from daejeon due to i could not get a train 😦 therefore i also arrive kind of late in seoul. I have to request my other K-Performance supporter Elyane to help me to talk to the KTO officer so i could still go inside ontime.

Do you know bibimbap? Bibimbap (비빔밥, Korean pronunciation: [pibimpap]) is a signature Korean dish. The word literally means “mixed rice”. Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste). A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. The ingredients are stirred together thoroughly just before eating. It can be served either cold or hot. In Korea, Jeonju, Jinju, and Tongyeong are especially famous for their versions of bibimbap. It is listed at number 40 on World’s 50 most delicious foods readers’ poll compiled by CNN Go in 2011.

KTO Trip to Nonsan Jeotgal Festival 2012

My trip as K-Performance Supporter with KTO

Last 19-20 October 2012, I have a chances with Korea Performance Supporter to come to the Nonsan and also visit Nonsan Jeotgal Festival 2012. nonsan city located in the middle of korea peninsula..I was so surprised that the participant of this trip was a leaders in many embassy. I meet Ambassador of Taiwan, DCM (Vice Ambassador) of Thailand, DCM (Vice Ambassador) of Taiwan, Ambassador of Chilie, Ambassador of Ukrain, and many more.

The jeotgal festival

The trip start with visiting Jeotgal Festival. There we have a nice buffee and try many different kind of Jeotgal. This is my first time had this kind of experience! I just know that jeotgal can be so delicious. 

Jeotgal or jeot is a salted fermented food in Korean cuisine. It is made with various seafood, such as shrimp, oysters, shellfish, fish, fish eggs, and fish intestines.Jeotgal is mainly used as a condiment in pickling kimchi and as a dipping sauce for pig’s feet (jokbal) and blood/noodle sausage (sundae). Sometimes jeotgal, commonly saeujeot, is added to Korean style stews (jjigae) and soups (guk and tang), for flavor instead of using salt or soy sauce (ganjang).

Many different kind of Jeotgal

The types of jeotgal vary depending on main ingredients, regions, and family and personal preferences. In past times, due to the limited transportation, regions near seas had more types of jeot compared to the inland areas.

making jeotgal with oyester

After try jeotgal, we have a chances to make our own jeotgal with oyester. The jeotgal that we make could sustain for 1 week. Actually many kind of jeotgal can even sustain until years. So the jeotgal that we make kind of fresh jeotgal.

After making jeotgal we also make kimbap with jeotgal. The jeotgal that we use to put in the kimbap was fish jeotgal. I was tasted it, it super tons delicious compare to normal kimbap. I geuss i want to remake this kind of jeotgal kimbap at home in the future. Its simple and taste so delicious.

It was fun experience, after that we have a chances to meet the mayor of Nonsan he so kind and welcome us to the festival. this festival held every fall season. i geuss if next year i am still in korea i would like to bring my mother to this cool places, since i saw so many ajumma, ajoshi, halmoni and harapoji in this festival.

In this festival there are so manythings happen such as a performance, flower festival, many booth with many interesting things related with jeotgal and much many more. I geuss this festival is interested if you love korean foods.
