Abstract This paper investigates factors for maintaining Chosŏnjok (ethnic Korean) identity in China. It describes the historical development and settlement of Chosŏnjok in China, and how their identity has been affected by the political change. Then, through interviewing and using survey data from most of the Chosŏnjok university students in Yanbian in China, the project investigates how the maintenance of Korean language, the Chosŏnjok’s exposure to Korean popular culture and mass media, encounters within their community, their education systems, as well as contact with other people from the Korean peninsula affects their identity in China. The results show that the size of the Chosŏnjok community, maintenance of Korean language, exposure to Korean popular culture (such as TV drama) are the factors influencing their identity.
