No,don’t add water or any juice to the kimchi. If so, the kimchi will go soggy soon.
Kimchi is not juicy enough but actually that’s good kimchi. One factor is the thickness of the cabbage. If cabbage leaves are thick, more moisture will be drawn out over time, so your kimchi will be very juicy. If your cabbage leaves are thin, there is not enough moisture, so the kimchi will be dry. Regarding some of my recipes that call for kimchi juice, if your kimchi happens to be dry, never mind. Without kimchi juice, you still can make delicious dishes.
