Summary:A great mobilization began in South Korea in the 1990s: adult transnational adoptees began to return to their birth country and meet for the first time with their birth parents--sometimes in televised encounters that garnered high ratings. What makes the case of South Korea remarkable is the sheer scale of the activity that has taken place around the adult adoptees' return, and by extension, the national significance that has been accorded to these family meetings. (...) The volume offers a complex and fascinating contribuition to the study of new kinship models, migration, and the anthropology of media, as well as to the study of South Korea."--Back cover.
