How an American ex-pat adopts a Korean hometown

How an American ex-pat adopts a Korean hometown

Anyone who has spent any amount of time eating, sleeping, working and living in Korea grows to love and adore the place, even if you find some aspects of Korea annoying, frustrating or downright awful. South Korea is a country you will never forget.

To commemorate where you came from, consider checking out DosBesitos. The shop owner describes the store as

an Etsy store featuring domestic and international adoption related jewelry, magnets, paper weights, and key chains, as well as items in many different languages.

In April, I had a pendant custom-made with a map of Chuncheon, my Korean “hometown.” When the order arrived, it came with a matching tin as well. Too cute!

Whether you’re “from” Seoul, Daejin, Chuncheon, Kwangju, Wonju, Daegu, Busan, Incheon or anywhere in between, this artwork can help you express your love for your Korean “hometown.”
