I met Ruthy van den Born while living at a guest house in the Hongdae area of Seoul. Like so many Koreans in the last 40 years or so, she was born in South Korea but given up for adoption to a foreign family.
After growing up in The Netherlands, Ruthy worked as a social worker in Amsterdam but quit her job to come visit her birthplace in order to gather information about her biological parents. I spoke with her about that journey and her impressions of South Korea.
