The Korean people's ancestors are rooted in the same nation but they survived several decades of separation under different political systems. After the nineties they encountered each other in various places, especially in South Korea and China. At the same time, they have been discriminating against each other because of their ethnocentrism and nationalism. Though they know that they belong to the same ethnic group, they are different. This paper explores the possibility of New Korean people which may be realized beyond its ethnocentrism.
