Korean Food Takes Over Tsingtao


SEOUL, Aug. 31 (Korea Bizwire)Korean foods like tteokbokki (stir-fried rice cakes) and bulgogi (sliced and seasoned barbecued beef) have set off for China to start a new Korean wave.

The ‘Korean Food Fair 2015: Tsingtao, China’ that opened on August 29 has been packed with Chinese people. Long lines were formed in front of the free food samples, and those who tasted the food were constantly exclaiming ‘hǎochī’ meaning ‘delicious’. Some even expressed their delight with a bit of Korean learned from watching Korean dramas.


The Korean Food Fair 2015 is not only about food. It is part of a fusion event introducing the taste and culture of Korea to major cities in other countries.

A taekwondo demonstration team staged a performance combining the martial art with samulnori (Korean traditional percussion quartet), drawing the eyes of many, and a kimchi-making event was a huge success. In addition, participants could experience Korean traditional games, and try on hanbok, Korean traditional clothes.

The ‘Korean Food Fair 2015′ will continue on to Xi’an and Chongqing in China, with plans for further events in Hanoi, Jakarta, and Dubai.
