the Head Family's Days

 

SYNOPSIS

Even if we are the new generation head family, that does not mean we indulge ourselfves. From preparing all kinds of food such as beef and fish for ancestral rites, held more than 10 times a year, to stacking jujubes and peanuts, several days are spent. For the Seo family, having a son as the firstborn is especially important. Therefore, the family adopted the firstborn from their uncle to carry on the family line. The eldest grandson of the head family, Seo Seboong calls his birthfather uncle and his biological father, Seo Sangki (85 years old) accepts it as his destiny. Steamed rice in a caldron reflects our ancestors’ wisdom. When the season changes from winter to spring, vegetables such as perilla leaves, dried radish greens, potatoes and rice are placed in a caldron and cooked using steam. Mung beans rice cake was a vital snack to children and women. It is filled with nutrition and one of my mother-in-law’s favorite food. Bossam, napa wraps with pork, is one of the best nourishing meals. It is scientifically proven that no nutriments are destroyed in the process of cooking. Food that have passed on the head family are filled with seasonal and life wisdom.
