- Examining the formation and development of Wangjing Koreatown in Beijing, this paper aims to expand the scale of research on transnational migration of Koreans in China in two dimensions. First, by locating the study of Wangjing Koreatown in the context of Chinas post-Mao urban restructuring, this paper analyzes the formation of Wangjing with the discussions on the pro-growth urban coalition which has been central to Chinas urban restructuring during the economic reform period. At the same time, Wangjing Koreatown is analyzed diachronically by reviewing the social stratification within Korean immigrant society in Wangjing over the ten years of settlement consolidation.
This characteristic of Wangjing areas development presents an important model in looking at post-Mao urban restructuring. The Wangjing area was developed and then transformed into a city within a city by relatively wealthy Koreans, and is now continuing a unique path of development as an internationalized distinct today. Thus, the reconstruction of the formation and development of Wangjing area can give vital information for research in Chinas urban development and clues to better guide Chinas future policy towards its foreign population and Korean society in China.
