Did anyone read the cover article in New York magazine a few months ago titled Asian Like Me ? (a play off of John Howard Griffin's novel "Black Like Me") Interesting Read.

Dude.. I work out everyday at the Lifetime fitness at Johns Creek . There are times when I am swimming at the pool, I feel I like I am in a health club in Seoul.... no joke. They don't even speak english.

One idea would be an advertising campaign that actively works to attract more Asians to the region from places like Los Angeles and San Francisco, and maybe even Seoul and Beijing.

Whoop there it is....

My wife is huge fan of Whole foods... but i am big fan of HMART.

When my Asian Cali friends talks crap about Altanta... I respond by.. "How many HMARTs do you guys have?" End of conversation.

Has anybody else noticed that COMCAST recently added two Korean-language TV channels to their Atlanta digital lineups, up there with all those Spanish-language networks we've always had?! Shhhh! Don't tell the rest of the C-D world! They'd refuse to believe it anyway ...

For Asians in general, definitely. But Atlanta holds its own for Koreans specifically. The city really missing from the list is DC.

A look at immigration arrivals and flight connectivity demonstrates my point:

Number of new Korean immigrants gaining permanent status in 2010:

1) Los Angeles 5,298
2) New York 3,415
3) Washington DC 1,338
4) Atlanta 825
5) Seattle 750
6) Chicago 729
7) San Jose 604
8) Dallas 549
9) San Francisco 484
10) Philadelphia 450

DHS | Yearbook of Immigration Statistics: 2010

Number of services on Korean Air weekly:

1. Los Angeles - 48 (7 x 747; 17 x 777; 21 x A330)
2. New York - 21 (3 x A380; 18 x 777)
3. Honolulu - 17 (14 x A330; 3 x 767)
4. Seattle - 16 (16 x 777)
t5. Atlanta - 10 (7 x 747; 3 x 777)
t5. Chicago - 10 (7 x 747/777; 3 x 777)
7. Dallas - 8 (5 x 777; 3 x 747)
t8. San Francisco - 7 (7 x 777)
t8. Detroit - 7 (7 x 777)
t8. Washington DC - 7 (7 x 777)
11. Las Vegas - 3 (3 x 777)

(keep in mind, Atlanta is the longest flight of all of these, and is second longest in KA's entire route network behind Sao Paulo)

Atlanta isn't the Korean mecca, but it's definitely very notable for Koreans in America.

Does Atlanta even have a Koreatown in its city center?
Obviously not. We don't have anything approaching an enclave of Koreans, Mexicans, or any other sort of nationality anywhere near our city center. That's not the type of city Atlanta is--we had virtually no Koreans (or really any other immigrants) when the driving forces behind inner-city ethnic enclaves were present. I'll bet we could add 100k more Koreans and still not have a distinct Koreatown anywhere near downtown. Immigrants mainly come to Atlanta for the suburbs.

What does this have to do with my comment? If you mean that Atlanta has enough Asians, I disagree. I want this city to be swamped with Asians. Intown Atlanta could especially benefit from a quadrupuling of the Asian population growth. We need a lot of condos filled and neighborhoods gentrified. Not to mention the coolnes factor of having an urban, intown neighborhood dominated by Asians. South Downtown would make a perfect Koreatown.

BringbackCobain...
That is exactly my point... Johns Creek asian population doubled in 4 short years... if this trend continues we will easily surpass 40,000 Asians in Johns Creek by 2020.. That is 40% of the Johns Creek population... the place you can see Asian population boom like that is in Los Angeles county back in the 1980s.

I always thought that Doraville was the old Korea town and Duluth is the new Korean town? am i correct?
