Ggagduki is the most popular kimchi in Korea together with Chinese cabbage kimchi. Radishes are cube-sliced into pieces which are rather big in size in order to preserve the vitamins. Oyster is especially good for old people or kids, since there are much protein and minerals including calcium and iron, and vitamins. Ggagduki combined with oyster has a fresh taste and much nutrient. However, osyter becomes sour soon. No or only a small amount of oyster is recommended when you want your Ggagduki to last for a long time.
