Sweet or Sweat? Ethnic Others in Korean Cinema
The number of foreign residents in Korea reached 1.5 million recently, signaling Korea’s turn to an increasingly multi-ethnic and multi-cultural society. This turn poses multiple challenges to Korean society, which until recently has maintained its strong ethnocentric culture and identity. The films in this series represent varied human reactions to such challenges.
Film screenings take place in the Center for Korean Studies auditorium at 1881 East-West Road on the University of Hawai'i Mānoa campus and begin at 6:30 p.m. Korean films are shown with English subtitles.
This series is free and open to all University of Hawai'i students, faculty, and staff and to the community at large. The series is supported by the Timothy and Miriam Wee Memorial Fund at the Center for Korean Studies.
