top 5 foods, watch out

“Koreans are famously fond of lists that show where they rank in relation to other countries. The topic hardly matters. First in patent filings per gross domestic product. Lowest unemployment rate among all G-20 countries. The Olympic gold medal in baseball. The world’s highest rate of Internet penetration. The No. 1 maker of computer chips and flat-screen televisions. A government-backed plan that intends to lift Korean food into the “top five rank of world cuisines” by 2017, whatever that means.”
