The best part of watching K-drama is learning a lot about Korean history, culture, customs, traditions, and food! LOL.
"Poong, the Joseon Psychiatrist" (2022) is a very short TV series. It's only 12 episodes. But in one of those episodes, the character was at a restaurant but he could not drink alcohol. So he ordered persimmon punch instead.
That sounds delicious! I would like to try that drink so I found a couple of recipes.

Do you know about Fuyu Persimmon Diospyros kaki 'Fuyu'? (Other Common Name(s): Fuyu Kaki)
Fuyu persimmon is a fruit that ripens in the fall season and should be included in the American cornucopia or “horn of plenty”. It is sweet and has a beautiful color! It makes for a beautiful ornamental plant. It attracts birds so you might want to put a cage around it. There are two other varieties of the persimmon that I know of:
Cinnamon Persimmons (also called Percinnamons); and
This fruit is native to China and Japan. You can make cookies, pies, breads, and jam with it. Slice or dice tme like apples and you can put them in salads, if you like fruit in your salad. Instead of apples with your roasted pork, substitute persimmons. You can dehydrate them and eat them like chips!
FUN FOOD FACT: You can freeze persimmons whole. Then when ready to eat, take them out of the freezer, let stand for 20 minutes to soften up, cut off the the top, take a spoon and DIVE IN!
