Koreatown

Legal Battle Over LA Koreatown Community Center Building

A four-story building in Los Angeles that once served as a symbol of uniting Korean Americans together as a community is now at the forefront of an ongoing legal battle between factions fighting for its control. KoreaFM.net spoke with LA Times reporter Victoria Kim & US attorney Andrew Barbour about the case.

On a windy, chilly, and cold day, I set out to visit the Korea town with many many layers on and of course my ushanka.

There was house on the back of Harvard street that I swear, looked like the movie from UP.  Scroll down and you’ll see what I mean!

Not as big as I imagined, and the shops were not consistently Korean.


The 20th Anniversary of Sa-I-Gu (L.A. Riots)

Rally held in Los Angeles on May 2, 1992

When the Riots happened, I was only 3 years old and on the other side of the country. Only until I was a freshman at UCLA did I understand what had happened on April 29, 1992, and its effects on the Korean American community.

Here in Los Angeles, I was surrounded by students who were the children of the Riots. I heard stories about their parents and relatives leaving with guns to help their neighbors protect their stores. They told me how they hid in their dark homes, afraid that they were going to die.

These accounts were eye-opening, especially since I was someone whose knowledge of the Riots was limited to brief excerpts from history books.
