Uncovering the Codes: Fifteen Keywords in Korean Culture is a cultural guide to what is unique about Koreans and their way of life. The questions raised in this book range from the mundane to the spiritual, each touching on the essence of Korea's 5,000-year-old culture: Why is a Korean spoon flat and round, not oval? Why do Korean women pray to a bowl of water? Why do Koreans eat dog meat? Kim Yol-kyu, a renowned scholar of Korean folklore and literature, carefully digs up the answers embedded deep in centuries-old customs. Quoting from a wide scope of references, from ancient mythology to Merleau-Ponty and Levi-Strauss, Kim unearths the fascinating connections between the past and the present. Kim is Dignified Professor of Korean Studies at Keimyung University in Daegu, Korea, where he also directs the Academia Koreana.

In addition to being delicious,Korean food is also healthy and natural, making it perfectly suited for the global culinary trends of health consciousness, slow food, and environmental sensitivity. At first, people are attracted to Korean food because of its distinctive taste, but they later come to love it for its health benefits. Korean food is based on the philosophy that one’s food should be one’s medicine. In fact, doctors have even used Korean food instead of medicine to treat chronic diseases. Chapter 1 K-Food in the World K-Food: A New Global Food Trend Non-Koreans Share Korean Cuisine with the World Fine Dining Korean Restaurants Around the World and Star Korean Chefs Chapter 2 K-Food, a Harmony of Taste, Health, and Nature Nutritional Balance in the Korean Diet Nutritional Value and Health Benefits of Korean Ingredients Leading Ingredients, Seasonings, and Cooking Techniques Chapter 3 Nine of the Most Popular K-Foods Kimchi (baek-kimchi, Kimchi-bokkeum-bap, kimchi-Jeon) Bibimbap: Mixed Rice with Meat and Assorted Vegetables Bulgogi: Marinated Meat Cooked on the Grill Bossam: Napa Wraps with Pork Japchae: Stir-fried Glass Noodles and Vegetables Haemul-PaJeon: Seafood and Green Onion Pancake Makgeolli: Korean Traditional Rice Wine Samgye-tang: Ginseng Chicken Soup Tteok-bokki (Gungjung-Tteok-bokki) Chapter 4 Six Easy Tips for Korean Cooking Tip 1. Kimchi-based Dishes Tip 2. Creations with Korean Flavors Tip 3. Bulgogi Seasoning and Various Meat Dishes Tip 4. Korean Dishes for K-pop Parties Tip 5. Korean Soybean Dishes for Vegetarians Tip 6. Side Dishes - Not spicy, Healthy and Easy! A wide variety of plates and bowls are used to set a table with Hansik, or Korean food. Bap (cooked rice), and a bowl of soup made from either meat and vegetables or fish, are set in front of the diner. A large pot or bowl of stew is placed at the center of the table, while various banchan (side dishes) are neatly arranged on the table. All of these dishes are set together, and the harmony created by the vegetable dishes and meat dishes seasoned with fermented sauces which have been made over a long period of time with care, is what makes Hansik uniquely Korean. Despite this uniqueness and the variety of food that is offered, the only Korean foods that were familiar to non-Koreans were the simple Bulgogi or “Korean barbeque.” However, things have changed in recent years, and Korean food is now being recognized as a source for new and exciting culinary dishes. The reason for this is simple. People today are becoming increasingly conscious about their health, and the food that is offered is being tailored to suit these needs. Many are looking for organic or natural foods, “slow foods” and food that will help their overall well-being, and Korean cuisine meets all those requirements. Moreover, it is tasty.

korean wave,hallyu,Korean culture,Korean,south korea,Korean pop culture This book is the first in a series of upcoming books to introduce modern Korean culture overseas. The term “Korean Wave” (“Hallyu” in Korean) was coined by the Chinese press a little more than a decade ago to refer to the popularity of Korean pop culture in China. The boom started with the export of Korean television dramas (miniseries) to China in the late 1990s. Since then, South Korea has emerged as a new center for the production of transnational pop culture, exporting a range of cultural products to neighboring Asian countries. More recently, Korean pop culture has begun spreading from its comfort zone in Asia to more global audiences in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and the Americas.
