  1. Koreans are concerned about pesticides as well and many avoid products from China. Some Korean grocery store items, in fact, advertise the fact that they weren’t grown in China.

  2. Interesting. When I went to a Korean grocery to buy pepper for my kimchi, I stopped a younger Korean woman and asked her to help me pick the pepper. I remember her emphasizing to me to pick the pepper grown in Korea.
