Korean panchan -- Origin of potato salad?

Kirk | Jun 22, 2006 06:41 PM

At lunch today, our Korean bento boxes included a panchan I've had at several restaurants: potato salad, very much like "American" mayonnaise-based potato salad.

Does anyone know the origin of this dish? Has it been assimilated from Americans stationed in Korea, a la Spam? Or is this something that sprung up of its own accord in Korea?
