I decided to organize this group because there seems to be many Korean Americans & many 1.5 & 2nd generation Koreans who want to learn more about the Korean culture, meet other Koreans & get back in touch with their roots. Since I came to the U.S. at a very young age & am very Americanized, I can relate to others like myself. With this group, I’m hoping to bring together such Koreans as myself who are searching to discover more about the Korean culture & the Koreans w/ the knowledge to help & educate us. Although, it’s wonderful that people of different ethicnics are interested in the Korean culture, this group is open to people of Korean heritage only. I feel it defeats the purpose of the group if many of the members are non-Koreans, but members are always welcome to invite non-Korean guests to events. Welcome & hope we can all help each other in our search for our “whatever” in life.
