Abstract [en]

The paper looks at Korea as the country which has sent away the largest number of its citizens for international adoption in modern times, and Sweden which harbours the highest proportion of international adoptees in the world. The focus is on the adopted Koreans of Sweden, their role in the development of the Korean adoption issue and how they are perceived as a physical bond between the two countries. Furthermore, the adopted Koreans are also turning up in Korean popular culture, and play a part in present day's diaspora politics and the construction of a nationalism embracing all ethnic Koreans.
