Kimchi shortage leads to bizarre Korean behavior
The New York Times' Mark McDonald reports that "kimchi has become so expensive that some restaurants in the capital no longer offer it free as a banchan, or side dish, a situation akin to having an American burger joint charge for ketchup, although decidedly more calamitous here."
And, it gets worse. The price of cabbage is going to prevent some families from making kimchi at all this autumn.
