Being Blasian: 5 Things My Korean Mom Didn't Tell Me About Koreans


The only thing to say about this video is that MsBlackKoreanLady, has A LOT to say about the culture shock of moving to Korea to learn about her other side. See, dad is black and mom is Korean, and though she lived with her mom her whole life, there were many things mama never shared about the culture.

Plus it would have taken all the fun out of discovering the culture for herself.
