Korean cooking forum topics:
Hi, I am from Malaysia. I ferment my kimchi in the refridgerator. Does my container need to be air-tight?
Simple answer is no. The kimchi pots used for a very long time in Korea were not even close to air tight.
Fermentation also creates gas which will create pressure in an air tight container. Then when you open it you could spray kimchi juice.
Yes, even if the container is airtight, you should probably let some air in there now and then.
