ABSTRACT

This study analyzes the effects of the relationship between social support and local community adaptation of Korean-Chinese. Therefore we conducted a survey targeting ethnic Koreans at Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture, and collected 250 copies from which 218 were used for statistical analysis. Results of research are as follows. First, unofficial social support based on trust between relatives and acquaintances among ethnic Koreans helps more to adapt into Chinese society rather than official community support. Second, ethnic Koreans adapt well to the community in everyday life, however social adaptation through local community participation and activities are not significant. Third, if ethnic Koreans adapt faster in terms of social support level, they also adapt in terms of social community support as well. Forth, both official social support and unofficial social support are influenced by education level and Chinese fluency, but especially unofficial social support is affected the most.
