      Abstract: As SJKS approaches publication of another issue, we continue to develop common themes from our June 2023 issue, offering a combination of original articles, along with the second half of a special issue. In the latter case, organized by Professor Jackie J. Kim-Wachutka, we are extremely pleased to offer a rich set of papers concerning broad themes of Zainichi culture. The contributors to these special issues come from fourteen different countries, a point emphasizing the broad academic networks and international range of scholarship.Together these papers consider issues of identity and the complex circumstances in which these groups negotiate, live, and develop their own communities. Although I will not develop ... Read More

  • A Place of "Re-collect": Zainichi Experiences with/in Utoro, Japan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In August 2021, an arson attack occurred in the Utoro district of Kyoto, Japan. The fire started with a storage building and then spread to destroy seven other buildings including houses. The town was notorious in Japan as an exclusively Korean residential area, and preparation for the opening of a memorial museum was ongoing. A 22-year-old Japanese male, the arrested arsonist, later confessed at the court that his crime was due to his hatred of Koreans (Lee S. 2022; Park S. 2022). He further justified his actions by stating that "there are people everywhere who feel the same toward Koreans as I do: discrimination, prejudice, and hate" (NHK 2022).The problems the Utoro district suffers from are far from just one ...

  • Logics of Strategic Racism in the Anti-Hate Speech Law Era: Analyzing the
           Discourse Against Zainichi Koreans in Japanese Right-Wing TV Programs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Hate Speech Elimination Act (HSEA), enacted in 2016, was Japan's first law on racial discrimination. It has been effective despite not including a penal code to regulate hate speech (Higaki and Nasu 2021). The number of hate events has decreased (Hatano 2019; Löschke 2021), and discriminatory remarks have become subtler and milder. This does not imply that hate speech has been eliminated. Instead, less visible racist discourse functionally equivalent to hate speech has become more common in the post-HSEA era. One notable example is the trajectory of Zaitokukai, Japan's most notorious hate group, which became inactive in 2016 and was then transformed into the Japan First Party. Although this group has attracted ... Read More

  • In/Visible—New Directions in Contemporary Art by Zainichi Koreans:
           Fragile Frames/Precarious Lives—in Soni Kum's Morning Dew (2020)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In recent years, exhibitions of contemporary art works by Zainichi Korean artists as well as research projects and writing about these artists have grown in number. The powerful works of the artists themselves that give voice and visibility to the lives and personal histories of Zainichi Koreans have propelled this work, and new spaces for exhibitions, film-showings, dialogue, and exchange have continued to pop up on university campuses, at community centers, and in art spaces and the street, some with the aim of pushing back against recent upsurges in direct and indirect censorship and incidents of hate speech. Zainichi Korean scholar Pek Rum1 introduces Zainichi artists who actively participated in dynamic early ... Read More

  • Literary Negotiations in Contemporary Zainichi Korean Literature: Zainichi
           Korean Postcoloniality and its Entanglement with Global History

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the decades following 1945, Zainichi Korean literature was predominantly interpreted as minority literature.1 However, since at least the turn of the millennium, the perspective on Zainichi Korean literature as a postcolonial literature has gained growing acceptance in Japan (Iwata-Weickgenannt 2008, 144–146). I consider Zainichi Korean literature as deeply rooted in a postcolonial context and its diasporas. As Ryang (2009, 1) notes, the "demographic map of Koreans residing outside of their homeland [i.e., Korea] reveals the cartographic traces of colonialism, World War II, the Korean War, and the Cold War. Koreans in Japan in particular are marked as reminders of Japan's colonial rule of Korea and the ensuing ... Read More

  • Culinary Intimacy in Fukazawa Ushio's The Matchmaker and "When Yi Tongae
           Eats"

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The "stench of garlic" (ninniku kusai) and the "stench of kimchi" (kimuchi kusai) are derogatory expressions that many Koreans in Japan grew up hearing. The Zainichi Korean writer Fukazawa Ushio (b. 1966) shares her childhood memory of kimchi in her recent food essay "When Yi Tongae Eats," recalling her mother's disapproval of eating kimchi as she was worried that Fukazawa would be bullied by Japanese children at school (Fukazawa 2023). The "stench of garlic" is widely perceived as Korean-specific, creating a sensory boundary between Koreans and Japanese people. Smells are value-coded and can reinforce social hierarchies and ethnic boundaries (Classen, Howes, and Synnott 1994), and the smell of specifically Korean ... Read More

  • The Tethered Fates of Japan's "Foreigner" Communities: Zainichi Koreans,

      Abstract: A catastrophe lays bare the societies and states that it strikes. It is a moment of truth, of revelation, exposing some as fragile, others as resilient and others as 'antifragile'—able not just to withstand disaster but be strengthened by it.The recent COVID-19 global pandemic reconfigured global patterns of human movement and the borders that administer and control it. As Mylonas and Whalley (2022, 3) have argued, during the pandemic "solidarity has been extended to co-nationals but has been less forthcoming beyond that point." In other words, the collective global response to the pandemic was to turn inward, batten down the hatches, and close the nation's borders—often at the expense of minorities or foreign ... Read More

  • The Multiple Layers of "Zainichi" Korean Chinese Diaspora Viewed from a
           Kaleidoscopic Perspective through the Prism of the Documentary Indelible

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: I think a film is like a mirror. The role of a film is to allow the viewer to find him/herself in it. The better the film, the clearer and more transparent the mirror, the more viewers can find themselves in it, and the more resonance they can discover.1The documentary Indelible (Chisuji, 2019), directed by Ryūichi Tsunoda (Seongwoo Kim), reveals the reality of diaspora for "Zainichi" Korean Chinese in Japan.2 It is a personal story of a man's journey to find his father and, by extension, himself. Simultaneously, it illustrates structural dysfunctions in East Asia that continue to create diaspora. William Safran (1991, 83) once defined diaspora as "a community of expatriated minority groups." The scope of this ... Read More

      Abstract: Christopher Scott's engaging translation of five works by first-generation Zainichi Korean author Kim Tal-su (1920–1997) is one of the six recent translations published by Seoul Selection in their Korean Diasporic Literature series. Supported by the Literature Translation Institute of Korea, the series currently consists of two works by ethnic Korean authors in China and four by Zainichi Koreans in Japan. The Trial of Pak Tal and Other Stories is of the latter group, which includes Kim Sok-pom's Death of a Crow, Lee Yangji's Nabi T'aryŏng and Other Stories, and Yang Seok-il's Blood and Bones. Four of the stories by Kim Tal-su in this volume are representative of his early literary output in the 1940s and 1950s ... Read More

  • Still Hear the Wound: Toward an Asia, Politics, and Art to Come ed. by Lee
           Chonghwa (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The essays, artwork, and moving images that comprise Still Hear the Wound: Toward an Asia, Politics and Art to Come express the legacies and shadows of colonial violence in East Asia through aesthetics, bodily images, and a decolonial vision depicting "an Asia yet to come." The "wound" in the title stands for the trans-generational ruptures experienced by women, laborers, and islanders under the Japanese empire. These wounds have yet to heal in the wake of colonial violence and a postwar discursive history that seeks to erase these transgressions and relations formed as a result of these wounds. As one of the editors of the volume, renowned scholar of Asian studies Brett de Bary puts it, the wound expresses past ... Read More

  • In-Mates dir. by Yuki Iiyama (review)

      Abstract: The video work In-Mates created by artist Iiyama Yuki was banned by its sponsor, the Japan Foundation, in 2021, and again the following year by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government's Human Rights Department, on the grounds that there were "concerns" about the film's reference to the "massacre of Chōsenjin [Koreans] at the time of the Great Kanto Earthquake [1923] as a fact." Iiyama held a press conference in protest on October 28, 2022, together with FUNI, a 2.5 generation Zainichi Korean who was the main performer in the film. Since then, they have continued their protest against censorship.In-Mates is based on the medical records of two Koreans who were committed to Oji Brain Hospital in Tokyo in 1930, where they ...

      Abstract: Koreans in Hawai'i presented an English-language play, Sim Cheong [Sim Chung],1 at the Honolulu Academy of Arts to celebrate the Korean Spring Festival on May 5, 1938. The play Sim Cheong, based on a Korean folktale, was adapted by Margaret Kwon (1917−2003), a second-generation Korean born in Hawai'i. Leading parts were also taken by second-generation Koreans, including Jane Choy, Adam Lee, Robert Lee, and Elizabeth Whang. These young ethnic Koreans were affiliated with a Korean civic organization called the Hyung Jay Club (Elder Sisters' Club). The play also featured the participation of a first-generation male percussion ensemble and female dancers (Honolulu Advertiser 1938a). The audience was mostly tourists and ... Read More

  • Making "Refugees": Repatriates, Migrants, and Institutions of Care in
           Liberated South Korea, 1945–1950

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The immediate years after Korea's liberation witnessed an unprecedented influx of people. Colonial migration and wartime mobilization projects had swept Koreans abroad by the millions and created a diverse overseas population—farmers reclaiming land in Manchuria, miners excavating the earth on Sakhalin Island, and ordinary people pursuing opportunities the imperial economy created throughout its realm. In a dramatic reversal of movement, approximately two million Koreans "returned" to Korea after Japan's defeat in August 1945, most within the first year. They were joined by hundreds of thousands of people who migrated from the Soviet-occupied North.1 Collectively, the recent arrivals became known as "refugees." ... Read More

      Abstract: Japanese-language scholarship has long played a vital role in developing historical scholarship in Korea. Despite its nonpareil role, most non-Japanese scholars struggle to trace the direction of specific debates and developments in historiography, sometimes resulting in partial misunderstandings of scholarly debates in Japan. This review article is a collaborative effort by five Japanese scholars and one American scholar of Korean history of the Joseon period to showcase five specific examples of such historiographical debates and developments to an international audience.This work follows the format of each scholar discussing one senior scholar's major work on Korean history and evaluating it in its scholarly ...

           Aram Hur (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Aram Hur thinks South Korea has something to teach the world about the relationship between nationalism and democracy. While nationalism finds itself associated with baser, reactionary movements around the world, in South Korea nationalism has made people better participants in democracy. Patriotic self-understandings, acquired through collective experiences of fighting against dictatorship, drive Koreans to contribute to their country. South Korea's recent experience, though, is no one-off; to the contrary, it reveals a truth with broader relevance.This story, told in Hur's recent book, Narratives of Civic Duty: How National Stories Shape Democracy in Asia, offers a refreshing reversal of the usual mode of linking ...

  • Flower of Capitalism: South Korean Advertising at a Crossroads by Olga
           Fedorenko (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Years ago, when I started my PhD, my supervisor, who was British, handed me a scrap of an advert for my reference. It was a largish newspaper ad for Hyundai Motor Company (hereafter Hyundai) from 1991 published in The Korea Economic Weekly. The ad shows an illustration of the Korean Peninsula, in which cars drive on a long road that stretches from the northern to the southern ends of the peninsula. The rather prosaic copy reads, "The Korean Peninsula should be a unified land. All 70 million Koreans share the same dream." There is no sales pitch in sight. All you can see is the promotion of a good cause, that is the reunification of Korea.Advertising is commercial speech. Sometimes, however, we come across ... Read More

      Abstract: As the first monograph on South Korean (hereafter Korean) webtoons, Dal Yong Jin's new book, Understanding Korean Webtoon Culture: Transmedia Storytelling, Digital Platforms, and Genres, examines webtoons as a pivotal cultural product poised to shape the next generation of hallyu. Webtoons represent a novel youth culture that has evolved through integration of digital media, originating from print comics (manhwa). Distinguished from their printed counterparts, webtoons captivate audiences with their distinctive vertical format, vibrant color palettes, purposeful spacious layouts, and imaginative incorporation of sounds and visual effects. This book delves deep into "a critical understanding of webtoons as a ... Read More
