Who Am I?

February 11, 2010
People ask me where I’m from.

I say, “Korea.”

I predict what comes next.

“South or North?”

I answer, “South.”

People say, “Okay, cool.”

But what if I said, North?

Would their response change?

Sometimes, I want to ask, “Does it matter?”

Does it matter which region I come from?

North and South, both make up Korea.

Just because I’m from North Korea, it doesn’t mean I’m a communist.

But I’m not from North Korea.

Why do I feel like I have to reassure you?

Which ever region I come from, it’s all Korea.

I am Korean.

I’m Korean.
