This paper can be seen as a case study of the relationship between a diaspora and its homeland, and the construction of an ethnic group, namely the adopted Koreans and the Republic of Korea. With regards to diaspora and ethnicity studies in a post-colonial and global setting, the paper argues that the adopted Koreans are constructing their own ethnic identity in the third space between their Korean homeland and the host countries in the West.
