Second-Generation Korean Americans and Transnational Media: Diasporic Identifications looks at the relationship between second-generation Korean Americans and Korean popular culture. Specifically looking at Korean films, celebrities, and popular media, David C. Oh combines intrapersonal processes of identification with social identities to understand how these individuals use Korean popular culture to define authenticity and construct group difference and hierarchy. Oh highlights new findings on the ways these Korean Americans construct themselves within their youth communities. This work is a comprehensive examination of second-generation Korean American ethnic identity, reception of transnational media, and social uses of transnational media.

MEDIA REVIEWS
At a time when culture wars rage, a nuanced and empirical understanding of ethno-cultural identifications and cultural practices such as the one offered by David Oh is priceless. Second-Generation Korean Americans and Transnational Media is a benchmark for the study of transnational media consumption. -- Eugenia Siapera, Dublin City University
Second-Generation Korean Americans and Transnational Media is a much needed study of the way Korean Americans consume and interact with Korean media. Transnational Korean media, such as K-pop, significantly influences the way Korean Americans make sense of themselves and their place within U.S. and Korean societies. -- Kent Ono, University of Utah
