As part of efforts to ensure that the world knows that kimchi is a Korean dish, pushing back against recent claims in China, the Korean government has published a second volume of a booklet called "Kimchi in the Eyes of the World".
It contains the experiences of foreign residents in Korea and visitors at Korean cultural centers overseas.
It explains in detail the difference between Korean kimchi and the Chinese dish pao cai, which some in China have claimed to be the global standard for salted, spicy, fermented cabbage.
Officials say it will be distributed through cultural centers, foreign embassies and the Korea Net website.
