Foreign Correspondent on ABC – In the decades since the Korean war ended, 200,000 children have been adopted to families worldwide.

Now as adults many adoptees are coming back, desperate for information about their birth parents and the circumstances of their adoptions. This week on Foreign Correspondent reporter Mazoe Ford investigates the Korean adoption system. Amidst claims of falsified documents, duplicate identities and even children stolen, she meets the adoptees on a mission to find the truth of the past. 

For many, information from the adoption agencies who capitalised on what quickly became a lucrative business has been hard to obtain. Concerns over corruption, malpractice and human rights violations have resulted in an official investigation into Korea’s international adoption scandal.
