The Cultural Heritage Administration plans to have "kimchi" and "gimjang" placed on United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization's (UNESCO) Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Gimjang refers to the annual tradition of making a large amount of kimchi ahead of the winter season.
The administration will open and operate a Web site over the next month to put the issue to a vote and to invite the public to send photos showing the culture of kimchi-making.
The administration will select ten pictures from the submissions to send to UNESCO along with its official application by March 31st.
The UNESCO intangible heritage committee will hold a meeting in November next year to decide on whether to add kimchi and gimjang to its list.
