I live in Southern California, so you might think I would be surrounded by Koreans, but most of the Asians in Long Beach are from Cambodia and Vietnam. We have neither a decent Korean market nor a Korean restaurant of any kind. When we're craving kalbi we usually drive to Garden Grove, about twenty minutes away, or K-Town in L.A., which takes about forty minutes. Sometimes I think it would be nice to live a little closer to a Korean enclave.
I recently learned about this list of the U.S. communities with the highest percentage of Koreans. Although my city doesn't make the list, two nearby communities, Cerritos and La Palma, are number 2 and 3.
What's funny is that despite the scarcity of Koreans in Long Beach, our local Borders has a whole section devoted to K-dramas.
Did your community make the list?
