RE: Learning About "Koryo Saram": Korea's Population in Former-Soviet Territories

in #history4 years ago

It’s interesting that you bring this up. My family had a lot of Korean friends in Moscow. But most of them were already third generation Koreans and most didn’t learn Korean, because of their parents decision against it.
My mother’s friend, a third generation Korean, a geopolitics professor was complaining how South Koreans who work at the embassy in Moscow treat Russian born Koreans as second class citizens. But I guess that might be just her personal experience.


Thanks for this @fukako, I'm definitely interested in learning more. The relationship between mainland Koreans and Koryo people is even less visible than that with North Koreans. It's unfortunate...but unsurprising since Korean nationals don't know how to associate with foreign-born Koreans.
