*note: ‘Yesunim’ means Jesus, in Korean*
This cross-cultural joke captures how Christianity appeared at the door and entered the lives of many Koreans, both in Korea and in countries Koreans have emigrated to. Christianity now contributes to 1/3 of religious belief in South Korea, along with 1/3 Buddhism and 1/3 atheism.
This blog will be used as a space to present my explorations of religion in London’s Christian Korean Community. I hope to explore what it means to be a Christian Korean person living in the United Kingdom, and why joining a church is appealing for new migrants. Through the techniques of Visual Anthropology I hope to give a sense of space and give a sense of truth to the viewers and readers of this blog about the people that have informed my experiences and conclusions.
