PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) Kim Jong Un wants to turn the art of kimchi-making into a science. And the North Korean leader is putting his money where his mouth is.
On the outskirts of Pyongyang, surrounded by snow-covered farms and greenhouses, stands one of Kims latest pet projects, the Ryugyong Kimchi Factory, which produces 4,200 tons of the iconic Korean pickled vegetable dish a year. The shiny new facility replaces an older factory and opened in June last year after getting Kims final seal of approval, according to manager Paek Mi Hye.
The factory is intended to showcase Kims efforts to boost North Koreas domestic economy and produce more, and better, consumer products. His strategy, known as byungjin, aims to simultaneously develop the national economy and North Koreas nuclear weapons program....

Isn’t this the same guy who played a round of golf and got a hole in one on every hole?
That was his father.
Wow! Thats some solid reporting from the Seattle times.. nice work guys er.. girls... or whatever, .. is polite.. FOLKS! Nice job!
BTW, did you happen to notice anything else about North Korea?
( Like taking a 3 year old on an Easter Egg Hunt)
E equals kimchi squared.
I dont think that is possible.
Kimchi is like potato salad or Sauer Kraut it has regional styles and family recipes.
One of my cousins married while stationed in South Korea. He brought his wife home with him.
While attending a family event at my grandmothers she let me sample some her own kimchi.
It about took the top of my head off it was so HOT.
I have since had some at a local Korean restaurant and it does not come close. It may be a different family recipe or tamed down for the more sedate American palate, I dont know but I havent had any kimchi that compared to that first tasting in the spicy department.
Stupid nork PR stunt. The objective is to stall, and put on the charm offensive with little measured tokens until Trump is out of office. They’re commies.
Hey....at least he isn’t claiming to have ridden a unicorn.
I can stand kimchi every third year or so. Could see myself paying for a kimchi starter kit.
#2. I think you’ve got it backwards. If he Didn’t get a “hole in one” every time, he put “one hole” in each of his staffers.
No putzing around on his golf courses, you know.
That was his grandfather and it was the first time he played golf.
If they could keep the MSG out of it, it would sell pretty well in the US.
No. Kim Jong Il. Kim Il Sung was granddad. He threw a perfect game against the 1928 Yankees, but they were too embarrassed to admit it.
And it was the first time he played.
Thanks Mr. Helper.
