So today I want to discuss the Korean culture – who are descendants of persons from the east asia country – Korea.
Estimated 1,406,687 Koreans reside in the United States. It is stated that the significant initial Korean immigration is occurred on January 13, 1903, when laborers arrived in Hawaii to work on sugar plantations. January 13 is celebrated as Korean American Day in order to recognize Korean Americans’ impact and contributions.
Some notable Korean Americans include:
- Doug Juhn, art director, visual effects for Elektra
- Shari Song, Founder of KAPS – Korean American Professionals Society
- Karl Yune, model and actor (Memoirs of a Geisha
- Juju Chang, ABC News
- Joe Hahn – founding member of alternative rock band Linkin Park
- Gregory Lee, the first Korean American Firefighter/Paramedic in the United States.
Once again as doing research came across this wonderful site that provides interactive lessons on Korean Americans.
