In the 1960s, almost 200,000 Korean children were recommended for international adoption. Most of these children were, or at least were assumed to be, the children of mixed unions between western soldiers and Korean women. These mothers were often marginalised and found themselves forced to give up their children for adoption. After he is found walking the streets on his own aged 5, the narrator is handed over to an orphanage. He is first sent to the United States via the Holt Foundation, then finally adopted by a Belgian couple who already have four children. Jung wills himself to forget his Korean origins to best adapt to his new life. Approved for Adoption is adapted from a comic book by Jung
