Introduction I was reared as a “Tennerican,” part Tennessean, part Puerto Rican. But truth be known, I was born Korean. I was adopted and grew up in rural, East Tennessee. Feeling unmoored and fearing my children wouldn’t know me if I passed, my blog began in 2007 as a record of my existence. To hear more of my storytelling, check out my YouTube channel @thekoreanhillbilly and the podcast “Bless Yer Lil’ Ol’ Heart” on all podcast channels.
