This article examines the cultural differences Korean adoptees perceived when interacting with their birth families along with the impact of these perceived differences. The article points out that there has been little research on transnational adoptees, as most research focuses on domestic adoptees. The researchers interviewed 19 adoptees and examined their perceived differences. They found that differences had a wide variety of impacts on the participants’ sense of belonging.
