These videos explores what it means to be Korean-American today. KoreanAmericanStory.org will be posting the remaining 3 videos in the series in the coming weeks.

One of the biggest struggle for Korean families living in America is the language barrier between the first generation and the second generation. That is, the generational gap resulting from the Korean mentality of the Konglish-speaking parents and the American mentality of the English-speaking second generation children continue to build a barrier between them.

In this episode, second generation Korean-Americans share touching stories about their relationships with their first generation parents and third generation children.
