Outliers to the Korean Multicultural Discussion: Joseonjok Portrayed as the Constitutional

This paper will focus on Korean media discourse surrounding the Korean-ethnic Chinese, or Joseonjok and how it relates to beliefs about nationalism and immigration policies. The paper will analyze how Korean films such as “The Yellow Sea” and “New World” seem to problematize the Joseonjok while at the same time bringing attention to a society of moral depravation.
