Korean Organizations

Jini here! I often hear that although Census says about 25,000, the number of ethnically Korean residents in San Diego is probably closer to 40,000. There are 2 major newspapers (Korea Daily, Korea Times), 2 free monthly magazines (Korea Daily’s San Diego Monthly, Hanin News), a radio station (San Diego Radio Korea — broadcasting on SCA Subcarrier), and lots of Christian churches (on my to-do list is to tally em up!). There are a variety of groups and non-profit organizations that come together not only because of their ethnic ties but to promote and experience Korean culture. Here is a working list of Korean / Korean-American / and Korean culture-related organizations in San Diego (remember, this is just based on my knowledge. I’m sure I’m missing a lot of orgs here. I will do my best to turn this into a complete list in the near future!)
