Synopsis

A great

mobilization began in South Korea in the 1990s: adult transnational adoptees

began to return to their birth country and meet for the first time with their

birth parents-sometimes in televised encounters which garnered high ratings. What makes the case of South Korea remarkable is the sheer

scale of the activity that has taken place around the adult adoptees' return,

and by extension the national significance that has been accorded to these

family meetings. Informed by the

author's own experience as an adoptee and two years of ethnographic research in

Seoul, as well as an analysis of the popular television program "I Want to

See This Person Again," which reunites families, Meeting Once More

sheds light on an understudied aspect of transnational adoption: the impact of

adoptees on their birth country, and especially on their birth families. The

volume offers a complex and fascinating contribution to the study of new

kinship models, migration, and the anthropology of media, as well as to the

study of South Korea.
