Korean diaspora is a historical phenomenon that can be traced back to the mid-nineteenth century

Overview: Korean diaspora is a historical phenomenon that can be traced back to the mid-nineteenth century. As reflected in some of our class readings, Koreans voluntarily and involuntarily left their homeland for many reasons, including political persecution, colonialism, and famine. Later emigration was hastened by war, dictatorship, and economic instability. Owing to this historic legacy, sizable Korean communities can be found in Japan, China, the former Soviet Union, Southeast Asia, South America, and the United States.
