History is what it is. I don’t dwell on the past. I do examine, and learn from it to the best of my abilities.
If you haven’t noticed by the picture, I’m going to talk about the Korean dispersion into Germany.
As an interesting fact, though, most people think Australia is all about Crocodile Dundy, Steve Irwin, kangaroos, and the outback. Well, don’t forget, there are a lot of Germans in Australia, A LOT. I’ve seen so many Germans in Australia that I actually can recognize the REAL English German accent. The American movies have got it all wrong.
In any respect, off to Deutschland! (Germany in German).
The population of the Korean community in Germany? Over 30,000 as confirmed Transport Deutschland by the Korea Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade as of 2009. So I can only guess there are more now.
How did it get this way?
When I first knew that there were Koreans in Germany, at first I thought, what the hell are they doing there? But then I got interested.
When I get curious enough, I find the answers. Thus, here is the short and sweet version of how we ended up in Europe.
