    Yes… and this is exactly why multiculturalism needs to be an option.  If there were say 500k Mongolians in Korea, then Koreans would have to wonder if they would need to incorporate elements of the Naadam holiday into local school curriculums, local (or provincial) festivals, etc.

    It’s not like that is going to happen. That many mongolians charging into Korea. We first have sort out the immigration lapse under Roh. Korea already has one of the largest mongolian community outside of Mongolia.

    Koreans did get the Tripitaka Koreana out of it, though, so it wasn’t a total loss.

    I’ve been enjoying the MBC series “Soldier” (as it is translated on Direct TV) here in Michigan.

    Oh no! Now you are suggesting international marriages.  There is a stink about that with all these reports of broken international marriages with SE asians. I’m sure there those that worked though even though they are reported to be in the minority through mail order brides.
