JACL and Min Reflection In the article Korean’s Immigration History and Contemporary Trends, by Pyong Gap Min, she analyzes the Korean Immigration trends and explain the reason behind the trends. She also mainly focuses on the Contemporary period of Korean immigration to the US. More Koreans immigrated to the US because the Immigration Act of 1965 allowed immigrants from every country to enter instead of preferring immigrants from one country over another, due to economic prosperity.

By 1989, Sega released their next console referred to as the Mega Drive in Japan and Sega Genesis in North America as a start of a new era for the company’s approach in attempt to compete with Nintendo’s second generation console, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) released in 1991. Consoles are released by what are known by generations, allowing the console manufacturer to improve on the constantly evolving hardware to avoid fading into obscurity. The launch of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Genesis caused intense marketing to the extent in which the second console generation was declared as the “Console War”among the gaming community.

Ever since the early days, development has been a fundamental element of our society, driven by technological progress and human ambition. Importantly, people have changed radically throughout time, and our past has significantly influenced our modern technologies. According to Jared Diamond 's theory on geographic luck, the development and advancement of contemporary superpowers were triggered by past events, such as the industrial revolution. Take Japan for example or America, both of these powerful countries have had a stable and fast-developing history, advancing through stages of hunting, to farming, to improvements in education and technology. However, my focus is about the most significant development in time: technology and how it helped society gain and use resources.

Starting with the obvious, all the politicians, from the North or the South, that shaped the country from the liberation onwards are tied in one way or another to the Japanese era – Kim Il Sung comes from the resistance movements in Manchuria, Syngmann Rhee was an anti-Japanese exile, Park Chung-Hee was an officer in the Japanese Kwantung army,
Unfortunately, Korean culture unconsciously penetrated to Thais, and it becomes a new popular brand among Thai people.
