Korean Language
The official language of North and South Korea is Korean, or Hangul. It was invented in 1443 during the Joseon Dantasy. The alphabets contain 24 consonant and vowel letters, however, they are being assembled into blocks instead of being written sequentially like the English alphabets.
Chinese artifacts
Some artifacts are:
Bronze pacing horse poised
on a swallow with wings
Winged lion, statue at the
tomb of Prince Hsaio Hsiu.

His culture was changed because of the many other cultures in Canada. There can be many things that has influenced his thought about his culture. This is due to the "must understand English or French policy", the environment, or the community.
Justin's family still celebrates many Korean festivals along with many Canadian festivals. Since he lived in Canada his whole life he had to learn English as a primary language and had no need to learn Korean.

Mother's side: Has lived in Canada for 28 years.

Father's side: Has lived in Canada for 49 years.

Justin: Has lived in Canada for 13 years.

Interview: Justin
Interview: Jason
His culture did not change much since his family has only been here for a few years. Jason's family managed to keep their traditional language (mandarin) going because that they speak it at home. Jason's family has only lived in Canada for about 3 years, though his parents had lived in Canada longer than Jason did. Jason's family still celebrates the majority of the Chinese festivals, however, his family has adapted to the Canadian cultures and started to celebrate some of the holidays like the Halloween.
There are a lot of Korean artifacts and traditional things.
Some of the Korean artifacts are:
Hanbok (Traditional Korean clothing)
Bronze Bell of Sangwonsa
Korean traditional houses are called Hanok, houses should be built against a hill and faces south to get as much sunlight as possible.
Bell of Sangwonsa
Core Value of South Korea
South Koreans prefer to be revolving around groups and prefer peace over over conquering. They are oriented on goals, once a goal is set, they will do almost anything to make it happen. They must be respectful, especially to the elders, the old have a duty to take care of the young and the young should respect the elders' opinions and obey their wishes.
Core value of China
Benevalent and polite to others, loyal to your friends and your country, respect knowledge and wisdom, trustworthy,
love and take care of the elders, responsible when you have power, shameful for your wrong doing, brave against injustice,
Mostly means polite. But in the past, it also meant knowing your place and superiority
During Seollal, young children dressed in hanboks will bow to their elders, go down on both knees, then wish their elders a happy and healthy new year. Then the elders will reward the children with banknotes(cash), and wishes them a good year too,this is very similar to the chinese new year.
After that, the entire family gathers around to eat food, Koreans eat tteokguk on Lunar New Year’s Day/Seollal wishing for good health, long life, and good harvest. In Korea, people believe that eating tteokguk on new year's day means to add one year to one's age. For the rest of the day, the families play traditional games, tell stories and eat food.
