What is Nunchi (눈치)? Some mysterious unspoken power that Koreans have that vaulted the country from poverty to her current position of power and wealth? Is it something that can be taught?

Something that is common among immigrant communities is how the culture they bring from their motherland is practiced as though it were still that time when they left, even as the culture changes in the motherland itself.

“My black side assumes I choose Korean culture over them or assume I don’t care about BLM (which I do care and support). On the Korean, side they assume I don’t respect the culture due to tattoos and not protesting with Stop Asian Hate (Which I also care about). I just feel like I can’t do right for both my people.” A recent listener mail that caug…
