Incheon Overseas Chinese Story Gallery 2017-07-09 오후 4:42:00

Oversea Chinese are Chinese who moved to and settled down in other countries such as Korea, Singapore, Vietnam, or Peru; or their descendants. The unique thing about oversea Chinese is that they do not accept or follow the foreign culture, even though they live in foreign places. Therefore, they form a society that is same as China’s, and they still follow the Chinese cultures.

There is a place in Incheon where people can experience oversea Chinese’s life. Kim-Bo-Seop, a photographer, opened a gallery that exhibits oversea Chinese’s life style. In the exhibition, it mostly shows the story of oversea Chinese’s life during around 1980 to 2000. Since there is a oversea Chinese in Incheon, Korea, in a place called, China Town, Kim Bo Seop pictured their daily life, culture, goods, and street in China town. Also, the building, first generation of oversea Chinese, he most interesting thing to watch is the change in China Town in chronological order.

The main reason why he pictured oversea Chinese is because their number is keep decreasing, especially these days. Therefore, he wanted to keep them in photos in order to preserve their culture at least in pictures. Due to his passion, people can experience, realize, and even get closer to oversea Chinese’s life.

In Korea and China cultural institute in Incheon, there are cultural exhibition, history collection, and other programs that explains and shows oversea Chinese. It is fascination that people can experience and realize Chinese culture without actually visiting China. Furthermore, it informs us Korea and China’s history, culture, economy, and society.

People can see a little of themselves’ identity form oversea Chinese. Koreans’ appearance is reflected in their their unfamiliar custom and daily items, especially their facial expression.
Maybe, it is because we shared the experience of war and separating with our families; oversea Chinese’ separation with their home country and our separation...
We hope that China Town will be best shelter for oversea Chinese.

"Oversea Chinese” people are those of Chinese ethnic groups that immigrated to other countries such as Korea, Singapore, Vietnam, or Peru. The unique aspect about oversea Chinese people is that they do not accept or follow the foreign cultural traditions or values where they are living. Therefore, the oversea Chinese form their own community similar to what it is like in China and follow their own Chinese traditions.

There is an area in Incheon where visitors can experience the life of an oversea Chinese person. Kim Bo Seop, a photographer, opened a gallery that exhibits their lifestyle. In the exhibition, it is mainly about the lives of oversea Chinese people around the 1980s until the 2000s. Since there are many oversea Chinese people in Incheon''s Chinatown, Kim Bo Seop has taken many pictures of their daily life, culture, goods, and streets. He has also taken pictures of the first generation immigrants of oversea Chinese people and the exhibition is all in chronological order of changes that occurred in Incheon''s Chinatown.

The main reason why he took pictures of these oversea Chinese people is because of the decreasing population in recent years. Therefore, he wanted to capture them in photos in order to preserve their culture in pictures. Due to his passion, visitors of Chinatown can experience, understand, and even feel closer to the lives of these oversea Chinese people.

In the Korea and China cultural institute located in Incheon, there are exhibitions, historical collections, and other programs that depict the lives of oversea Chinese people. It is a fascinating exhibition where people can experience the Chinese culture without actually visiting China. Furthermore, these programs are greatly informative of Korea and China''s history, culture, economy, and society.

Through these exhibitions, visitors are able to identify with some of the lives of these oversea Chinese people. For example, the facial expressions in pictures can be reflective of Korean people in photos as well as customs and daily items. This may be because Korean and Chinese people have a shared history of wars and separation of families.

It is important for Incheon''s Chinatown to remain as a place of shelter for these oversea Chinese people.
