I forget how we stumbled onto KoreAm, a magazine focusing on Korean Americans, but we’re sure glad we did for many reasons.
First, we really enjoy reading the articles each month. The subject matter ranges from entertaining to educational to political to historical. The magazine focuses on food and entertainment too. In fact the latest issue has an article on the popularity of soccer in Korea and among Korean Americans.
Second, we love that there’s a magazine in which our son can see people who share his heritage. People who are entertainers or athletes or politicians or writers.
Third, my husband and I trained as journalists and have backgrounds in magazines and newspapers. So we’re kind of addicted to print media.
We enjoy this magazine so much that we have yet to throw away an issue. Yep, it looks like we’re collecting them. Not sure what we’ll do with the collection.
If online media is more your style, you can check out their Web site at http://iamkoream.com/. Or, if you’re a print-media addict to like we are, you can subscribe to the magazine via the Web site as well.
