South Korea's exports of kimchi reached US$111.5 million in the January-August period, up 13.8 percent from a year earlier on growing overseas demand for healthier food amid the new coronavirus pandemic. In contrast, imports of kimchi shrank 9.7 percent on-year to $86.1 million over the cited period, resulting in a trade surplus of $25.4 million in the sector. (Yonhap)
