Hashtag Highlight: Sampling South Korea’s Bread Culture Through #빵스타그램 (“breadstagram”)

For more photos and videos of the wide variety of breads found in South Korea, browse the #빵스타그램 (“breadstagram”) hashtag.

In South Korea, bread has historically never been a prominent part of the daily diet. As European bakeries expand their businesses into Seoul, however, local’s love for the food has grown. Bread has even taken in root in the culture to the point of becoming a popular topic for local TV shows and magazines.

While classic croissants and baguettes populate the regular lineup, the most common types of breads from these bakeries contain sweet fillings such as red bean paste, sweet potato paste or whipped cream. Bakers sometimes also add sweet rice in the flour dough for chewiness, top the bread like pizzas or make animal shapes out of them to add an extra creative twist. Local Instagrammers have picked up on documenting this new wave of bread culture by adding the #빵스타그램 hashtag (bbangstagram or, translated, “breadstagram”) to their photos and videos of bread to share their personal favorites and reviews with the Instagram community.

Here’s some video from our wedding on May 23, 2014.

(I suggest watching it in HD)

I’ve been to a lot of weddings (including our own) that included both a Western-style service and a traditional Korean ceremony. But when American expat Jenny and her Korean husband Jae got married last month, they decided to go all out on the traditional ceremony by holding it at the Korean Folk Village in Yongin. This is the cool video that they made of the proceedings.
