This research analyzes how the discourse of ‘Blindly Coming up to Seoul’, which was popular from the late 1950s to the early 1980s in South Korea, helped reproduce gender inequality in South Korean society. Especially, this study delves into how this period’s immigrants to Seoul were differently identified in this discourse based on their gender and age.
