Is there discrimination against black people in South Korea?
It's hard to say there is no discrimination against blacks no matter where you are. Some black people might say it's hard to land a job in Korea because of their skin color. They raise a good point. Then again, there are many blacks in Korea who are employed. Many of them are English teachers at schools and hagwons.
My guess is that black women face less discrimination in Korea compared to black men. Remember, most Koreans living in Korea have had little to no interaction with black people. The only time they see black men is from the media such as foreign action movies and music videos. The problem is that black men in the media are usually portrayed in a negative way. If you are a black person living in South Korea, be ready to constantly tell people that you are not a rapper or a basketball player, even if you are a black woman.
