This is called Chungeukjjang. The nastiest fermented toe jam ever mixed with water. It is also where you will know who your friends or enemies are and their truest of “tells”.
A boxer can see a lot in someone the moment they put up their hands.
A chef can see a lot in someone the moment they pick up a knife.
A professor can see a lot in someone the moment they write a paper.
I can see a lot in someone in the way they eat and approach food.
This one is like shoving your head in an ice cold dense murky barrel of Medieval who knows what and suffocating you with the most rank form of dank. When you gasp for air, reaching for some sort of clarity, covered in confusion, pores clogged, pushing your way back to light….
Is where I find if you are a friend or foe.
Do you hold your nose and make a face?
Or do you embrace
That is Chungeukjjang?
