Bibimbab, Taegukgi Top Choices for G20 Promotion

2010/11/09 | 410 views | Permalink | Source

South Korea's G20 summit preparation committee has conducted a survey that finds the Korean dish "bibimbab" and the Korean film "Taegukgi" will best promote Korean culture to the world leaders who will attend the summit this week.

The highest percentage, some 32 percent, of respondents suggested the rice and vegetable medley for the foreign leaders. Coming in second behind bibimbab was the seasoned beef dish "bulgogi" followed by the ancient royal dish "sinseollo" served in a brass chafing dish.

For the most recommended Korean movie, 50 percent chose "Taegukgi" followed by "Take Off" and "The King and the Clown".

Changdeok Palace was the top cultural asset that the survey participants suggest be introduced to foreign leaders. A doll donning the Korean attire "hanbok" was picked as the best traditional gift and spicy "ddeokbokki" rice cakes as the best Korean street food.
