Korea is the only divided nation in the world. According to the preliminary report of the Ministry of Unification in September 2017, the total number of defectors is 31,093. In order for South Korea to overcome the conflicts between the two Koreas and to prepare and achieve unified Korea in the near future, it is very necessary to understand and study the reality of North Korean defectors and their suffering due to alienation, discrimination and prejudice that they feel in South Korean society. This will be reflected and helped in the multicultural research and education of Korea, which is rapidly progressing into a multicultural society.
The number of North Korean refugees is increasing and is being influxed into South Korean society by various age groups such as age and education. As a result, education and systems for North Korean defectors are available, but no education is provided at the educational sites related to their understanding and North Korean defectors. It is enough that the school district grasps the number of students at each school every semester. In fact, most young people in middle and high school do not even know the term "defectors", and they do not know what reason and process they come to Korea to settle and live in. Most of them do not know about the reality of defectors.
In this study, we interviewed 8 middle and high school students in Busan city to find out how young people think about defectors, what kind of educational and understanding efforts they have made, It aims to find educational implications for students in society.
