This paper talks about the approximate 700,000 North and South Korean nationals who are living in Japan. Representing roughly about 1% of Japan's population, the author discusses the discrimination that the first and second generations of these naturalized Koreans have had to go through. The paper explains that most of these Koreans were refugees who were driven to Japan during the colonial period. The paper also discusses how younger generation Koreans in Japan now find it quite difficult to distinguish themselves from the totally Japanese and the Japanese culture itself as most of them have been assimilated into the mainstream Japanese culture.
