One of the articles “An Invisible Existence in Daerim” drew my attention, while I was skimming through the articles. When I finished reading it, I was highly impressed with what the reporter wanted to convey.
The article about Daerim-dong, which is called “Little China in Korea,” starts with a brief introduction of the town. Not only did it contain some information about it, but also suggested what Koreans living in a multicultural society should aim for.
South Korea deserves the title of multicultural society. However, it is undeniable that Koreans’ understanding of a multicultural society is still low. For example, some prejudiced expressions referring to particular foreigners are frequently viewed on the Internet.
We need to throw away narrow-minded attitudes, which hurt foreign residents who chose Korea as their second home to settle in. As the reporter said, they are just ‘people,’ first and foremost before they are labeled as ‘foreigners.’ People need to help people. That is all we have to keep in mind to stop hurting them.
