A woman is the first Korean in space

Yi So-yeon will “fly to they sky” on April 8. She will board a Russian spacecraft, Soyuz, going to the international space station. She’ll bring with her the national side dish “kimchi”, “doenjang” or bean paste soup, “gochujang” or chili paste, ginseng tea and other Korean foods. It was Ko San who was supposed to be the first Korean to go to space but he violated training protocol and was replaced. I’m so sure with this assignment, Ms. Yi’s life insurance quotes would go up!
