Lexus, this is such an engaging story! I know little about Korea and even less about Korean food and found this piece fascinating. Thank you for introducing me to both.
I am sorry you went through such a hard time. Often, change is what we need to heal. Thankfully, Korea provided the healing you needed.
So happy to have you here on Weeds & Wildflowers. I look forward to more of your stories and anything else you care to share.
Oh, and, you are a talented food photographer!
