Big Ass Steamed Bread Dumpling

15 Aug

Big-Ass Steamed Bread Dumpling.jpgIt’s Liberation Day in South Korea, and so, of course, it’s a good day for a big ass steamed bread dumpling, full of meat and onions!

Gwangbokjeol is an odd sort of holiday. When I think of “independence”, I think of a violent or disruptive action that causes tension. On the Korean peninsula, though, independence came through no such action – it was just the legal consequence of the Japanese surrender to the Americans on August 15, 1945. That is, V-J Day, which is not an official holiday in either Japan (although it is the second day of Obon) or the U.S.
