A month ago, i joined the Kimjang Sharing Festival via my school. My class teacher was asking us if we would love to learn/try making Kimchi so excitedly, i raised my hand.

But ah, on that day i realized that instead of learning how to make Kimchi, we're pretty much volunteering ourselves to make thousands of Kimchi for the orphanages~

The festival was located out of Seoul. In Ilsan, Kintex, which is some sort of a exhibition centre(?)
Anyways we took the bus from school chartered by CJ so it wasn't a problem. Roomie and I were pretty darn excited~

There were so many people! I was shocked as i thought it was only our school participating but apparently there are thousands of people! 3 korean language schools and one of them was Yonsei~

It was quite a large event as it was all recorded and there were people going around interviewing the participants. 

There is some actress who joined in too but i couldn't recognize her ;;;

The best thing was there was a table of different types of Kimchi where we can try it out!

This hug booth is really cute! Just hug it and freebies will be dropped for you! yay~!

Let's start the Kimjang!

Firstly, everyone must wear the Kimchi making gear! It is to make sure the Kimchi you make will be clean and also to prevent your shirt getting stained by chili paste and the stench oooh~

The Kimjang making session started at around 1:00pm and lasted for 5 hours. /gasps/ We got a mini 20 minutes break at 3:00pm though.

During the break we were given sandwiches from A Twosome Coffee which is one of the cafes owned by CJ group too! Wowow~

Back to making Kimchi~ my group of 7 people managed to pack 30 boxes of Kimchi which means around 200 Kimchis! /gasp/ pretty awesome right. we're all really practical during work.

After finishing the Kimjang session, were given free dinner as well. Yum yum~! The food was delicious. Honestly i wasn't expecting to be given dinner. It was really good!

We're also allowed to bring home a jar of Kimchi that we made~

Also, after the festival they offered us to watch a movie in CGV with free popcorn and drink as well but i was too tired and the movie would end around 10:00pm, i skipped the free movie session :(

I have to say this is one of the best experiences i ever had. Although the Kimjang session was tiring, it was truly an amazing and fun experience~! Also, i got so many freebies~


If there is another Kimjang Sharing Festival next year, i would love to join again!

Lastly, not forgetting a photo with the super duper cute mascot!
