    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.

    Absolutely love the Korean culture.

    I wish I had more Korean friends. I grew up with the culture at a young age (despite my ethnicity) admiring K-pop idols. Korean BBQ is amazing.
