WHITE once was the color of our world.
But it was soiled in the tank of the color RED.

 

They are “Spicy”. Flavored with red chili paste then placed into vats and left to ferment for months and even years; The Korean delicacy known as Kimchi, just like women, leaves a stark taste for the senses People react differently to this taste: some react strongly and craze over this particular taste, while others decide to keep their distance.
 

Yet what seems to be overlooked, is that Kimchi (akin to the purity of women, were all but fresh cabbage to begin with…
 

Alas, by using their body, text and music, they peel away layer of the kimchi cabbage leaves to reveal the innocence and vulnerability that all women possess. These are the humanistic traits of the female, which also embody the “true beauty” of a woman.
