    Korean Adoptee

    I am a Korean adoptee. I take the stance that I am 100% Korean (biologically) and 100% American (environmentally). I tend to get along with other Korean adoptees.

    I'm Half Corean

    My obogee's Corean, my oma's French-Italian. I get asked about it on occasion from others but I don't really see it as being a big deal really (they act as if I have magical powers). "Yeah I can eat kimchee and drink like the French at the same time" ^_^ I really do identify with...

    A Korean Girl

    The one race I never dated was my own, not by choice either. I want to date and hold a relationship with one. It'd be nice. Someone I can watch dramas with, someone who can teach me something new (like the Korean language), some I can speak to with my native tongue and share...
