Abstract [en]

This article is a presentation of a study of representations of adopted Koreans in Korean popular culture. After a background to the history of international adoption from Korea and an introduction to the Korean adoption issue, the article looks at the representations of adopted Koreans in four Korean popular songs and feature films respectively. At the end, these representations are linked to the ethnic and postcolonial character of Korean nationalism and to the fractured and fragmented state of the Korean nation itself, and conceptualised as an attempt at reconciling with a tragic history and imagining a new future for a global Korean community.
