As the mid-Wilshire area experienced a decline in residency in the 1960’s, wealthy South Korean immigrants found that they could acquire inexpensive housing, as well as their choice of vacant commercial and office properties for business use. Following the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, relaxed federal immigration regulations resulted in a growing immigrant community. Today, Koreatown is one of the most densely populated and diverse districts in Los Angeles County with more than 120,000 residents occupying an area of just 2.7 square miles. Although the community was historically Korean oriented, present-day Korean business owners are working to build stronger ties with Latinos in the area. Koreatown is now one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the county with a majority of residents being either Asian or Latino, more than two-thirds of whom were born in places outside of the U.S.
Colloquially known as, “K-Town”, Koreatown, Los Angeles is an overflowing cache of culture. Some of the best things to do in Koreatown include enjoying L.A’s best biryani at Bangla Bazar & Restaurant, karaoke at Shrine, shop stationery at Daiso, take in the crowds at Line Hotel Pot Lobby Bar, eat local at Mok Maru Jong Sul Jip, get well with acupuncture from Dongguk, drink soju at Cindy Club, practice your swing at The Aroma Golf Range, or grill your own duck at Sun Ha Jang, or check out L.A.’s synagogue for art, Wilshire Boulevard Temple. Whether you’re headed to Koreatown Plaza, or to eat some BBQ at Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong make sure you arrive in K-Town style with an on-demand car wash from MobileWash.
