We are looking for a Korean Communities near Atlanta to set down in. I saw Duluth has a 3.6% Korean population, is anyone from Duluth or know a different town with a large Korean population? I remember traveling through Atlanta and stopping (don't remember what part of Atlanta) at a very large Korean shopping area of town. Does anyone know that part of town? Any help with be gratefully appreciated.

I honestly don't know of a specific area that has a large Korean community or of a Korean shopping center. However all the ethnic/immigrant communities are centered along Bufurd Highway (which goes through Duluth). Most of the ethnic shopping centers are on Bufurd highway and ethnic communities center around the roadway. I would guess the Korean market is more likely to be outside the perimeter because I've noticed more asian shops outsides the perimeter than inside.

Hope this helps

I know that there is a very large Korean Christian church a little bit north of Atlanta - I'll try to get the info from my girlfriend. We attended a wedding at that church last summer for one of her co-workers. She drove so I don't remember exactly where it was. But I do know that there is a pretty large Korean population in Atlanta.

Default Korean communitites

There is a large Korean population on the north side of the city primarily in the Chamblee, Doraville, Norcross, Duluth and Alpharetta areas. Most of the Korean families that I know live within mixed populations - I'm not aware of any Korean neighborhoods if that's what you're looking for. There are several Korean shopping areas along the Buford Hwy corridor that runs from Chamblee to Duluth with Doraville and Norcross in the middle so you probably visited one of those. Many of the churches in this area also have Korean congregations as well as there are several Korean churches of varying denominations, too. The better school districts in the area are Norcross High School, Northview High School, Chattahoochee High and Centennial High. Probably want to avoid the Meadowcreek High School area, if possible. Hope this helps in your search.

if you're looking for a city with a thriving korean community, then duluth is the place. over the past couple of years, there has been a huge influx of koreans into duluth and other surrounding cities like alpharetta and suwanee. duluth has a huge korean shopping center anchored by h-mart (korean grocery store) and many other businesses catering to korean customers. i live in duluth, so i'm no stranger to the many noreabangs, korean barbecues, and other things sprouting in the area. many of the schools have large korean populations, with duluth high having the highest percentage of asians of any high school in the state (25%). although that includes other races besides koreans, it's a good indication of the large korean minority in the area. i would highly recommend duluth if you're looking for a large korean community... a minute won't pass by driving on the road without seeing a sign in korean.

Interestingly enough, there is a Korean Church going up between Newnan and Peachtree City on the southside. I live in Newnan and don't see a very large Korean community, but I guess it's established and growing.

Chamblee north to Duluth as has been said, is your best bet.

Atlanta unlike many other larger cities, does not really have thriving neighborhoods for Asians, Latinos, Europeans, etc. It's a black and white city, and that's it. There are "areas" in the city where you will find more (or less) people of other ethnic backgrounds, but this isn't a city like Chicago, New York, or Vancouver, with individual neighborhoods for a variety of ethnic groups.

Atlanta's korean community has grown to about 80,000 within the past few years. Duluth has a high concentration of korean owned business and many call it home. Buford Hwy where the old koreatown used to be is once again experiencing growth with new shops and buildings going up. The GM plant closing has sparked more interest because of the possibility of residential condos going up in place of the car manufacturer.
