I had the same issue (not being “sparkly” or pungent enough). I’m hoping Maangchi or anyone can chime in soon!! I’m drying to find out why my batch came out wrong. I was only 3 days in and noticed some discoloration on the top layer and not much bubbling. It tasted “mellow” for a kimchi. I’m guessing I salted for too long, forgetting that the firm pieces shouldn’t be completely wilted.
