Cross Cultural Korea

leave a comment »

Some like to call the Koreans very ethnocentric while others think of them as being plain out racist.  Either way, a country that has long prided itself on being homogeneous is now contending with the very global problems of having a notable multicultural demographic.

Pick up the summer issue of Koreana Quarterlywhich has several articles discussing the foreign villages and how Koreans are dealing with becoming a multicultural society.  On quick perusal of the periodical I noted how mostly Western and Asian societies were mentioned although I did note a couple of faces that looked Blasian (Korean/Black). 

Maybe that’s an issue for Koreana at a future date.
