Time Out says

Yeah, sure, it might be a little bit of the “typical tourist” thing to do, but there’s no harm in learning something new, right? At the Seoul Kimchi Academy House, you’re given a 90-minute lesson on how to make kimchi. Your 30,000 won fee includes a hanbok for you to wear as part of the cultural experience, tea served at the beginning of class, a how-to class taught by a kimchi-expert and ingredients for the kimchi that you get to take home with you. For those only temporarily in Korea, the Seoul Kimchi Academy House helps you prepare the kimchi in an air-tight container that you can bring on your flight. The instructors are often bilingual, speaking both Korean and English, but some speak Chinese and Japanese as well. They also encourage a lot of photo-opts but feel free to politely decline if you’re camera shy!
