Being Korean American
“Where are you from?”
“I was born here,” I say.
“Where are you REALLY from?”
I get annoyed because I know where this question leads to.
“OH. You’re asking me THAT question.”
As if that question gives that individual some brownie points in which honey, he or she doesn’t get.
“ Korea,” I say.
Then they ask if it’s North Korea or South Korea.
Obviously South Korea.
