Image for OUT NOW! Our OCTOBER issue!

Berlin has a close-knit Korean community little known to outsiders – a K-town of sorts with its pastors, doctors, hairdressers and lawyers. We explore the Korean diaspora, meet the nurses who came here in the 1970s, the successful German-Korean second generation and the entrepreneurial newcomers. If you want to try the K-lifestyle yourself, we tip you off on where to get the best K-food and beauty and chat to German Kpop fans. Also in this issue: the best female-led concerts, pottery exhibitions, post-migrant theatre productions, porn and much more!
