Kimchi Soul was founded in March 2011 to follow one girl’s quest to find Korea in London. So far, we’ve discovered fortnightly film nights at the Korean Cultural Centre, fun screenings through the London Asian Movies Meetup group, crazy K-pop club nights, bespoke clothing boutiques and a community of like-minded Korea fans.
Some of our favourite moments so far have been attending an outdoor screening of vintage silent movie Crossroads Of Youth and participating in cineAWESOME’s 2011 Korean Film Blogathon. Our readership ranges from London’s Hallyu fanatics to ex-pats residing in Korea and Koreans all over the globe.
The blog’s proudest and most exciting moment happened recently, when the founder was invited to Korea in October 2011 as a reward for promoting Korean culture in the UK.
As a very part-time project operated around work, studying Korean and being active in the London Korean and film-loving communities, future plans are for the blog to expand in terms of contributors and subjects covered. To double our 100 to 150 views per day would be the most amazing achievement!
Kimchi Soul takes the unique perspective of someone who studied Film and Theatre for four years, spent a year living and working in Korea, and is now enjoying life in the Big Smoke. With a penchant for horror, indie film-making and all things cute, Kimchi Soul’s passion is infectious!
