Korean diaspora in Kazakhstan is few in number, but it is one of the hard-working and respected ethnicities.
More than 80 years have passed since Korean people’s deportation to Kazakh land. It was a hard time, people struggled for their existence. The Kazakhs have sheltered many people, and also have given the chance for ethnoses to keep the culture, language, traditions. Koreans in Kazakhstan attend Korean language courses, keep up customs, celebrate holidays. They have two important big holidays - Seollal (Lunar New Year) and Chuseok (harvest festival).
