I loved Korean radish and have been buying it to make kimchi, braise chicken Chinese style or Korean style and not forgetting to make soup. Radish is cooling so eaten best when you feel that your body is heaty or a cough is coming. Simmering radish with pork said to be reduce fever, stop coughing and prevents gallstone and kidney stone.
I made this soup for my cough that I developed after I came back from Malaysia. I suffered the worst jet leg ever, couldn't sleep well for the whole week and then started to have sore throat and coughing that prevented me to sleep for another week. Not cool at all. My dad said my body didn't want to come back to the U.S. and thus it made me suffered. ;-D
