Korean Immigrants and their Aesthetic Perspectives on Appearance
Beginning in the late 1960s, mass immigration has increased the diversity of ethnic groups in American society (Alba & Nee, 2003). As the geography of U.S. immigrant population has shifted from Europe to Asia, Africa, and Latin America, a more favorable environment has been provided for nonwhite immigrants than in the past (Alba & Nee, 2003). Current immigrants think that cultural differences in society are valuable and express interest in maintaining their own cultural origins and cultural objects. Different values and views co-exist in contemporary American society.
