You know kimchi, right? I love kimchi. I could eat it all day long. Just don't try to slap me in the face with it, though.

As tipster Sang points out, Everbody Kimchi is a South Korean drama set in the kimchi industry. On a recent episode, one character got slapped in the face with a whole kimchi cabbage. It looks painful.

And messy. See the kimchi splattered on the wall in the background?


And all over the floor, too. Eating kimchi is very cool. Slapping people with it? Not so much.

The clip has been amusing people online in South Korea as many can't believe the show went this far.
