    I actually used to subscribe to Koream and loved it! Too bad they aren’t digital… Although I would never pass up a free magazine :)

    Lots of interesting articles written by Korean Americans

  2. Sarah says:

    I loved reading KoreAm mags back in my college years. But I’ve been busy being a mom of two (aka ajumma). I’d love to read KoreAm mags just to give myself a “me” time and connect with what’s going on in the community.

  3. kristina says:

    i want to share with my son what being a korean american is all about! :)

  4. Krista Riester says:

    I’d love to know what’s going on with the Korean American community, especially since we don’t get the Korean station where I live.

  9. Charity Chung says:

    I am not Korean but my kids are half since my husband is Korean! I am so proud of the Korean heritage and that my kids are part of such an amazing culture! I take pride in making sure that all things korean are part of their lives. It would be awesome to get this magazine to share with my kids, especially my oldest who desperately wants to visit Korea and live there one day!

  10. James says:

    I read the KoreAm site weekly so getting the magazine would be fantastic!

  11. jo says:

    of all magazines out there the title seems the most relevant to me- would love to check it out!

  12. Sarah Jakel says:

    My husband is Korean American and therefore so are our children. It would be a great magazine for the whole family.

  13. JG says:

    My aunt used to send me a gift subscription when I was in high school and now want to get one for me and my two kids to enjoy!

  14. Esther K. says:

    Their magazines keep me ‘in the know’ in the KA society – I like to know what’s going on – and sometimes I get to learn something about the KA society that I thought was a norm in America, but is only to KA’s. =D

  15. Rigina says:

    Would love to get this subscription. I just am now hearing about this magazine through this contest. Needless to say this would be an educational read for me and my family.

  16. Jenn says:

    This would be a great mag to read during my bb’s nap for some downtime.

  17. Elizabeth says:

    I love reading the KoreAm updates on facebook. It would be great to have the Journal in our home to read and learn more about Korean American culture for my sons.

  18. Miriam K. says:

    My husband is Korean and along with 2 bio boys we have a two year old daughter adopted from Korea. It is our goal to keep as much Korean heritage for her as possible and I feel this would be an excellent way to be a part of that!

  19. Carol says:

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway! I feel like I’m pretty out of touch with the Korean-American community most of the time. This magazine would be a great way to reconnect.

  20. Miriam K. says:

    Just posted to my Facebook!

      Hi Carissa,
      You did it correctly. If you share on your Facebook page, we would like you to comment here again which I see you did – that way you get 2 entries (#33 and #31).

  34. Beverly says:

    We would love to try KoreaAM! My husband is from Korea and has lived away from Korea for 10 years. I think the subscription would be great for him, and us as a family. I would like him to feel closer ties to the Korean community in North America, and through articles in this magazine, he can learn more about how Koreans celebrate their heritage in another country. I think this would be a great gift for him!

  35. Krista Riester says:

    I shared on my fb for the extra entry!

  36. Christys says:

    I had no idea this magazine existed. I would love a free subscription to check it out and be more connected to the KA community!

  39. Christine Park says:

    I would like to volunteer in the Korean American community. I use to volunteer at KYCC and KCCLA and would like more information on Korean community organizations via KOREAm, where I found out about KYCC, etc. I also believe if my children read Koream, they will be interested in volunteering in Korean organizations to help out the Korean community like I did!

  40. Genevieve says:

  44. Christine V. says:

    I want to expose my daughter, who is only part Korean, to Korean culture. I would love a free subscription to KoreAm for this purpose in particular. Thanks!

  45. Dennis says:

  47. Justin says:

    Facebook share

  48. Bobby Walker says:

    My wife is Korean and we use to have a subscription to KoreAm. We would sit and read each issue together when it would arrive and talk about all of the subjects and stories. We saved all of our old issues for when we have children. When they get old enough we can share them with them while teaching them about their heritage.

  49. Sarah says:

    Just shared it on fb.

  50. wendy says:

    I never had the chance to read your subscriptions but enjoy your facebook postings! Would love to love to have this in our lunch room at work.
