Being an immigrant and juggling two cultures is a common experience in Canada, often seen as a blessing.
But there's also a cost to that balancing act.
Kevin Park Jung-Hoo and Jin Hee Woong recently meditated on this subject at an exhibit called Migrant Instability at Montréal, arts interculturels.
Park was born in Toronto and grew up in Quebec City, before moving to Korea in his youth.
Jin was born and raised in Korea, and immigrated to Montreal in 2017, where he is raising his two kids.
Park says that this sense of being split between two worlds feels like
you're always a few inches above the ground.
In a candid conversation with the CBC's Jennifer Yoon, also a Korean Canadian immigrant, they discuss how being both Korean and Canadian has given them opportunities, while also bringing feelings of loss and isolation.
