Brief Profile

Korean diaspora have roots from both North and South Korea, but the majority due to prevailing political circumstances in North Korea come from South Korea.

Many people consider the “national food” of Koreans to be Kimch’i (also spelled kim chee). Kimch’i is a kind of pickle made by combining Chinese cabbage with spices and other strongly flavored foods. It is generally served at every meal – even breakfast.

Korean food is also composed of rice dishes mixed with spicy vegetables and meats such as chicken, beef, fish or pork. For special occasions, food such as kimhap, a heavily spiced version of sushi, or pulkugi, strips of marinated barbecued beef, may be prepared. Other common foods and beverages include dok (pounded rice cake), soups and barley tea. These dishes, many of which are hot and spicy, can be enjoyed at many Korean restaurants.

Buddhism, Confucianism, and Shamanism are the traditional religions of Korea. Missionary activity has been strong for over a century and Christianity has gained a foothold. The majority of Korean diaspora are evangelical Christians of various denominations, including Baptists, Methodists, and Presbyterians.

Prayer Points

  • Pray evangelical Korean Christians will join in fulfilling the Great Commission of taking the gospel message to the nations that surround them throughout Europe.
  • Pray for Korean Christians who are allowing secularism and materialism to influence their passion for knowing and serving Christ.
  • Pray for evangelical Korean Christians to send missionaries to other nations.
