Although Koreans immigrated to the United States in the early 20th century and again shortly after the Korean War, the largest wave of Korean immigrants didn't arrive here until after the Immigration and Naturalization Services Act in 1965. Today, more than one million people of Korean descent live in the United States. Korean Americans focuses on this important group—its history, culture, and contributions—and includes profiles of prominent figures of Korean descent.
