    The Origins of "Honhyeol"

    After looking at Hawaiian and Japanese words for mixed-race people in our last two episodes, we bring it home this week to explore the Korean word “honhyeol,” meaning “mixed blood.” Becky and Cedric go back in time and find that the same attitude that preserved Korean culture from past invaders is now alienating and ostracizing half-Koreans today.

    From Halfie to "Hafu"

    Continuing our theme from last week, we look at the history and present-day connotations of “hafu,” a Japanese word used to describe some half-Japanese people. Becky and Cedric trace the origins of the word back to the 6th century and share their ideas about the similarities between the mixed-race experience in Korea and Japan today.

    Should F4-Visa Holders Be Required to Enlist in the Korean Military?

    In Korea, an F4 visa, which is granted to relatives of citizens, provides many of the benefits of citizenship without the responsibility of military service. As F4-visa holders who both come from military families, Becky and Cedric share their opinions and discuss the cultural pressure of fulfilling military service, the disruption it can cause in the lives of young men, and the different attitudes toward the military in the US and Korea.
