In order to propagate nationalism after the Korean War, the Korean government initiated the policy of 'mono-ethnic state' danil minjok, which instilled the anti-foreign mentality in many Koreans till now. In Korea where over 90% of its citizens are 'pure blooded', the mixed race and new citizens who wasn't '100% Korean' are always treated as an outsider. This episode of "Strangers At Home" visits the orphans from the Korean War whose entire life were discriminated because of the way they look. As society progresses and becomes more open minded, there are more and more mixed races children being born. In 2012, for every 20 new-borns, 1 is a mixed race. So how do the mixed-raced live in the modern society? To understand that, we speak to an 18-year-old American-Korean and a Nigerian Korean model. For a mixed race person to assimilate into the Korean society is already no easy feat.韩国在战后为了宣扬国家民族主义,政府所倡导的其中一个建国方针就是“单一民族”danil minjok,因此韩国人甚至到了现在都有非常严重的排外心态。在这个超过90%是“纯正”韩国人的国家,DNA不是“100%”韩国人的入籍人士或混血儿,在自己的故乡始终被视为外国人。 这一集的节目将会走访韩战遗留下的遗孤,因为与众不同的五官与身世,一生都面对着歧视。然而,随着社会的逐渐开放,在2012年,每20个新生婴儿,就有1个是混血宝宝。现代的混血儿又有着怎样的遭遇呢?节目中也找到了另一位18岁的美韩混血以及尼日利亚与韩国的混血模特儿。拥有一半韩国血统的混血儿要融入这个社会已经很难了,更何况是这些来到韩国后决定在这里落地生根的入籍人士。他们又面对着怎样的遭遇呢?
