number of South Korean expatriates that call this city
home. This encounter of the two cultures and communities
has carefully and slowly grown to bloom into the Korean-

residents of the city to experience the diverse and unique
cultures of the two peninsulas is a step closer to a
harmonious society, where everyone understands each
